The first production of 2014 at the Landor Theatre is a revival of the American musical comedy No Way to Treat a Lady, which will play from Tuesday 21st January to Sunday 9th February 2014.
Based on William Goldman’s best selling novel that became an Academy Award-winning movie, No Way to Treat a Lady is a theatrically charged musical comedy thriller about a publicity crazed actor and the endearing detective who persistently pursues him. Take a seat and watch in anticipation as Detective Brummell of the NYPD chases a murderous master of disguises through New York City, unravelling a complex tale involving an Irish priest, a Spanish dancer, a French waiter, a pizza delivery boy and a pair of dominating mothers! A darkly hilarious musical full of twists and turns, No Way to Treat a Lady is a devilish blend of humour, romance and murder.
A Richard Rodgers Development Award winner, No Way to Treat a Lady received its World Premiere in 1987 off-Broadway in a sold-out, extended run at the Hudson Guild Theatre. It received an off-Broadway revival in 1996 at the York Theatre Company where it was nominated for two Outer Critics Circle Awards (Best Revival and Best Featured Actress) and a Drama Desk Award.
