Triple Espresso closes early at the Arts 15 Mar 03

The American ensemble comedy Triple Espresso has posted early closing at the Arts Theatre. The last performance will be this Saturday 15 Mar 03 (The show was booking to 5 Apr 03)

The show received luke-warm reviews from the popular press when it opened on 21 Jan this year: BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says,"Ambling, amiable, undemanding, uncontentious fun." LYN GARDNER for THE GUARDIAN says, "This show is really just an excuse to rehash some old jokes, routines and toe-curling audience singalongs within a theatrical format.....As it is, it is a very tired old blend, not a gold blend." THE SUNDAY TIMES says, "Entertainment is not dead... irresistible variety show." PATRICK MARMIOM for TIME OUT says, "It's a very, very decaffeinated fare..."

Triple Espresso originated in Minneapolis in 1996. A second production opened in San Diego in 1997, and is now well into its 5th year. In addition, Triple Espresso has played in cities across the USA including Chicago, Seattle, Providence, Sarasota and Springfield, MA. In July and August of 2001, Triple Espresso set an all time box office record at the 21-year old Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, NY. However, the show has not gone down well with London audiences!!

Triple Espresso features original songs, parody send-ups, and vaudeville-style ensemble comedy. This three-man play celebrates the 25-year anniversary of the trio's ill-fated Big Break and showcases the talents of gifted performers in the roles of Hugh Butternut, a dynamic musician; Buzz Maxwell, a weary magician; and Bobby Bean, a hapless comic.
