The Trivial Pursuits being played during the girls' night say it all about Neil Simon's mid-1980s female-led reboot of his 1965 New York flat-sharing comedy. Because, rather than the laddishly perennial poker school of the original, it's that more voguishly faddish game which makes it look more of a period piece than it should do. That's not necessarily to the detriment of Rachel O'Riordan's bright and at times extremely funny new production. Just don't mistake the primary colours and zingy period soundtrack, led by Cyndi Laupa's gloriously inevitable Girls Just Want To Have Fun, as some cheap date hen-night extravaganza is all. Simon, and O'Riordan, are smarter than that.
