The small semi-circular stage is particularly well used by both the director and choreographer Christopher Tolle , especially when one considers that there is no wing space at all. Set design Friedrich Eggert is imaginative, taking in the front of the restaurant bar as well, and as I have already intimated, costumes Heike Seidler are often spectacular, always appropriate, and add to the organized mayhem of the occasion. The superb small orchestra, including a few strings, piano and tuba, provide strong support under the direction of Johannes Roloff.
One can either get a combined reserved ticket for dining and show at Tipi, or an unreserved one without meal towards the rear of the Big Top, but even here one is very close to the action, at times perhaps too close! In short, a wonderful revival of an hilarious, period musical. A truly great night out — more please!
