Commentaire:

Using the title of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s second novel, this was based on the true life story of Scott and Zelda. It was an expensive production with a lavish water fountain effect at the end of Act One. The critical reaction was extremely damning - “this calamitous enterprise resembles a slow motion car crash” - dull songs and an extremely dull book was the general verdict.  (plus)

Commentaire:

Over the fifteen years since it first opened “Sunset Boulevard” had been associated with awards, lawsuits, long runs, big stagings and even bigger losses. But this revival revealed a smaller, more dramatic and intensely gripping show. With just a chaise longue and a spiral staircase to suggest Norma Desmond’s faded glamour, some people felt it failed to capture the decadent spirit of the original, and with actors doubling as musicians, it felt a bit cheap and “Brechtian”. However, most of the critics felt being able to concentrate on the essence of the characters and the score was an enormous advantage– and confirmed that, at heart, “Sunset Boulevard” is a great and undervalued musical. Originally the show was scheduled to close in mid-April, but the booking period was extended to mid-September. However, six weeks into the extended period, on May 30 th, the show closed due to a downturn in sales.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The circus-format derived from the appearance in the novel of Samuel Sleary’s travelling circus, but the whole jolly format came over as a send-up of the novel, rather than a musical. The musical style ranged from Gilbert & Sullivan to romantic ballads and vaudeville numbers and the show itself was amiable, silly and old fashioned. With Brian Blessed (“never knowingly underplayed”) and Roy Hudd in an extension of his glorious music-hall acts, this was a curious mish-mash, and came off on August 26th after just three months.  (plus)

Commentaire:

This show started life as a revival of the Gershwins’1927 musical “Funny Face”, but by the time it opened in New York in May 1983 it had been given a new story, cut half the original songs and added numbers from other Gershwin shows); and had gone through 4 directors and 6 librettists. Given a new title, “My One and Only”, ran for 767 Broadway performances starring Twiggy and Tommy Tune. Its UK premiere was at Chichester in July 2001, and transferred to the West End. It generally received good notices, with special praise for the choreography but only managed 183 performances and a five month run.  (plus)

004 Calamity Jane (Revival)   
Joué durant  2 mois 3 semaines - Shaftesbury Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)

Cast: Toyah Wilcox (Calamity Jane), Michael Cornish (Wild Bill Hickok), Garry Kilby (Lieutenant Danny Martin), Emma Dodd (Adelaide Adams), Kellie Ryan (Katie Brown), Phil Ormerod (Francis Fryer), Duncan Smith (Henry Miller) 

Commentaire:

This was a touring production which had originated at Northampton Theatre, and had been on the road for some nine months before coming into London.
During its tour Toyah Wilcox caused some disappointment to her fans and discontent among some provincial managers when she suddenly left the show to appear in “I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here”. However, the extra publicity from the television show persuaded the powers-that-be to bring the show into the West End. It was criticised for its touring scenery, and inevitably Toyah Wilcox was compared unfavourably to Doris Day in the film version, but all in all her performance was mostly praised, though the show itself had a luke-warm reception.  (plus)
