One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Christian Slater

Last night Laura and I went to go see "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest", starring Christian Slater in the lead role of Randle Patrick McMurphy. Adapted from the wildly successful movie (Milos Moreman, 1975) by Dale Wasserman, I had my doubts as to whether Slater could pull off a performance worthy of the precedent set by Jack Nicholson in the original movie and was pleasantly surprised and in fact extremely impressed, with not only his performance, but the performance of the entire cast at large. Frances Barber as nurse Ratchet and Mackenzie Crook (of "The Office" fame) are inspiring and believable, pulling off excellent performances. Tickets for this show came in at £37.50 but in terms of bang-for-buck, this show is right at the top of the list. A West End must-see show!

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is showing at the Gielgud on Shaftesbury Avenue until 22 January 2004.
