"In nearly two decades of writing 'about' the theatre, I've seen, heard and read hundreds of plays, but never tried to write one. If I had, I would have been delighted for it to have been 'Ziggy Fraud and the Choirboys from Vienna'. . splendid performances given by all, from the zany progress of Ziggy himself from repressed bespectacled weirdo to a cross between Ade Edmondson and Johnny Rotten to the appropriately monotone monstrousness of Herman Munster, with an amazing array of crazy characters in between."
