“I love criticism just so long as it’s unqualified praise,” Noel Coward once said. Lucky then that the reviews for mtp’s new production of Noel & Gertie, based on the playwright’s 54-year friendship with Gertrude Lawrence, have met with admiration, acclaim and applause. The love story, devised by Sheridan Morley from the couple’s letters and diaries, is told with all ‘the Master’s’ flair and wit. Featuring song and scenes from Privates Lives and Blithe Spirit, this beautifully set and immaculately executed production by Matthew Townshend, takes a perfectly-orchestrated trip down memory lane. A showcase of the affectionate, complex and tempestuous relationship of two of the best-loved performers of the Twentieth century.
