From the Samuel French, Inc. website: Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off returned to Broadway with a cast that included Patti LuPone and Peter Gallagher for the 2002 season and sent reviewers searching for new accolades to the hilarious. 

"The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy.... A spectacularly funny ... peerless backstage farce.... [This] dizzy, well known romp ... [is a] festival of delirium .... On every side are theatergoers barking, howling, hooting ... floating in the upper altitudes of comedy.... There are moments when everyone onstage and in the audience seems to be riding the same runaway roller coaster." 
N.Y. Times

"Bumper car brilliance.... If laughter is indeed the best medicine, Noises Off is worth its weight in Cipro." 
N.Y. Daily News

"The funniest farce ever written.... Never before has side splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non metaphorically medical.... A veritable celebration of truly awful theatre, a backstage explanation of how things got that way, and a magnificent coda of how they just got worse. The bad has never had it so good!" N.Y. Post. 

"As side splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever." 
N.Y. Magazine
