Commentaire:

This was one of the great disasters of musical theatre. It contained embarrassing moments like Mrs Barnardo thrusting her dead baby into the arms of her husband for him to sing about “My Son”, a dreadful duet for two poor urchins singing a song called “Cor”, and reviews which said things like “This is a case for the NSPCC” . The show was in financial trouble very early on, with a receiver called in, and the receiver quarrelling with the show’s publicists - they refused to place any more adverts or posters unless they were paid - and then furiously criticising the reviewers for their bad notices, claiming this was a show which the audiences loved.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The husband and wife team who wrote this show were supported by the Daily Mirror, who urged their readers to become “angels” and invest in this, the “peoples’ musical”. Hundreds of readers contributed small sums, and a former chauffeur put up £500,000 of his life’s savings, thus raising the £1.25 million needed. The opening night was cheered to the rafters by a house packed with hundreds of investors, but the critics were damning (“three thousand angels and not a prayer”, “Pass the loaves and fishes, they need a miracle”). Despite a blessing from the Pope for the cast and authors, and the investors coming up with more money, the show came off after 3 weeks, losing all its investment.  (plus)
