Not until Danny La Rue parodies the Irish would his fellow-countryman recognise Daniel Patrick Carroll, for then he reverts to the less usual singsong accent of his native Cork. At no other time is there evidence of Irish humour or simplicity in Mr. Danny La Rue — almost the opposite.
It would not be fair to be critical for the sake of prudery, because the show is excellent and very funny. At the same time, one does not like to mislead readers into thinking that the Danny La Rue Show at the Prince of Wales Theatre, is a family night out, it is not.
However, despite some crudeness and many double meanings, it is very funny, superbly mounted, and apart from Danny La Rue, includes excellent performers such as Johnny Hart, a brilliant magician, and five Argentinians in a sensational speciality act.
For sophisticated adults, the Danny La Rue Show is a great night out.
