Commentaire:

For some it was a “delightful nostalgic evening recalling a time when romance was compatible with wit, irony and fun.” For others, it recalled the “reactionary, snobbish and sexually repressed and
juvenile theatre when censorship ensured our stage was as wholesome as a Monday wash and rather less interesting”.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The original premiere in 1931 at Drury Lane involved great spectacle, massive sets and a professional cast of over 200 including Mary Claire, Edward Sinclair, John Mills, Irene Browne, Una O’Connor, Arthur McCrae and Moyra Nugent. The show was very successful and ran for almost a year. Because of its size and enormous production costs, it has never been revived on anything like its original scale. The work provided the idea for the 1970s television series “Upstairs Downstairs”.
This revival had started at Bromley and was part of an extensive UK tour. In each city the basic professional cast of 15 people would be augmented by hundreds of local amateurs and a large number of children, with several teams of children in each venue because of licensing restrictions. It required an extremely complex system of rehearsals dealing with the ever-changing cast of supernumaries. The Sadler’s Wells production used 275 extras.  (plus)

Commentaire:

Generally it was felt this show - still running off-Broadway after 36 years - was a timid, milk-soppy, sugary-sweet and fragile thing, not really worth the bother of staging. However, the critics were very impressed with newcomer Joseph Millson.  (plus)
