    I think that this comedy might be a long runner. This is good for the promoter but bad for the theatre-going public if yet another theatre becomes unavailable due to a long run. It was funny after a bit of a slow start but as in all farces there was too much shouting. The sets were superb. It seems to me that producers have the actors rearranging sets these days which might put stage staff out of work. Not sure I approve of that. A very good play but when, oh when are we going to see a theatre curtain before the show again? I don't want to see the set until the play begins. But these are minor quibbles. Overall - good.

    Very entertaining evening, the set and use of space was very clever, loved the car scene! Stephen Mangan had the audience on his side completely. Really enjoyed it.

    Stephen Manghan was fab (as ever) Sue Johnson too (although underused in her part). Kara Tointon just annoying and generally the play was dated and a bit dull. A couple of nice dance routines took it out of "dreadful" territory.

    I loved the show but I was extremely disappointed to discover that London Theatre Direct had added a 20% booking fee to each ticket. I won't be using them again.

    We very much enjoyed our evening out to see The Man in the White Suit and would recommend the play to anyone who likes farce, comedy or pantomime. Excellent production with lively, fun entertainment. Beautiful Victorian theatre, we had good seats for a very reasonable price. Good value for money, we’ll use London Theatre Direct again for future bookings.

    This was a real disappointment in a theatre that usually shows only really good plays. The fact that we had to wait until nearly 7:30 to be allowed to go to our seats didn't help, and the loud music that blared out the whole time we waited for the (late) curtin to rise was annoying. The cast over-acted and, worse, over-shouted. The costumes and the set were cheap, the music played throughout was second-rate, and the whole thing was presented as something of a farce. I left at the interval.

    Delightful. A splendid evening of theatre. A hit for sure.

    Great acting and clever production but an insubstantial plot. Also limited viewing from the grand circle. Could have moved the action back a metre to provide greater visibility.

    We are huge fans of Steven from the series episodes and were very fortunate to stumble upon the production while we were in London absolutely loved it hope you have a long run

    A good laugh!!

    At the interval I was in two minds as to whether to stay for the second part, as it felt like forced comedy that was trying too hard to be funny. Glad I did as I found the second part so much better. Almost as if the play had been written by a different team. Best view in the house - R17 - back row of the Stalls at Wyndham's. Two steps up from the row in front and eye to eye level with the actors.

    A hugely entertaining play with just the right balance of humour, music and storyline. The sets were brilliantly done and the acting superb. Loved it!

    Stephen Mangan is a comedy genius! Adaptation of the 1951 Ealing comedy, moved to the late 50s but also with added current day references to consumerism, ecological issues and government / legal issues. Mangan plays an idealistic scientist who develops a cloth that never wears out or gets dirty. However the workers and owners of the Northern mill both see this ruining their livelihoods. They unite to ensure the invention is suppressed, and that waste and disposability continue to keep the mills viable. It seamlessly merges satire, slapstick and character comedy, and skiffle, to make an excellent stage production. Kara Tointon is excellent as the mill owner’s daughter who wants to be taken seriously. And Sue Johnston is also great as Mangan’s washer-woman landlady

    Well, the production is very good and super entertaining. But that's it. I was expecting something more robust and certainly without so much singing! Not sure it's worth the over £100 top tickets. And if you buy the Gran Circle, much cheaper seats, you miss a lot of the action.
