Commentaire:

With a screenplay by Eleanor Bergstein, this was originally a low-budget 1987 film with Patrick Swayze and Jerry Orbach. It was a massive box office hit, becoming the first film to sell more than a million copies on home video, and spawning a 2004 prequel, “Dirty Dancing Havana Nights” In that same year a stage version was staged in Australia and although reviews were mixed, it was a sell-out during its six-month run. This production was re-created for the West End, with the Australian Josef Brown in the role of Johnny Castle. It opened with a box office advance of £6 million – the largest in the history of the West End. The show ran for five years , closing at the end of September, 2011– and Josef Brown continued to play the lead role throughout. (The show has had hugely successful productions in Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles, but has not yet made it to Broadway.)  (plus)

Commentaire:

A new tour to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the show began performances on 12 December 2009, at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. This touring version included a new set, new costumes, new direction and alterations to the original orchestrations. There was no revolving stage and the scenery was inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo. The tour then played seven major UK dates, and a special engagement in Paris, before returning to the Barbican, where the original 1985 production commenced. This tour ended its run at the Barbican.
Trevor Nunn, stated publicly that he was profoundly unhappy and felt betrayed that something inferior has been created by outsiders, and that he had not been consulted or involved in the new production. Cameron Mackintosh replied :  (plus)

Commentaire:

Casts of the current London, international tour and original 1985 London productions took part, comprising an ensemble of three hundred performers and musicians This special concert celebrating the show’s 25 th anniversary was marked by the increasingly bitter dispute between Cameron Mackintosh and Trevor Nunn, the original director. Sir Trevor’s sense of betrayal seems to have grown since he was not appointed to direct the new touring version and has deepened because he is not directing this special two-performance concert. Asked if he and Sir Trevor were on speaking terms, Sir Cameron said: "No, actually, and given that Trevor Nunn is about to take over the chair this month of my professorship at Oxford, I just think Trevor's been very silly. Trevor is entitled to his own opinion, but it's sad. He hasn't actually directed Les Miserables on his own, or at all really, since 1987. I sent him a little note saying, 'Don't be so silly. Your memory is as bad as your manners'. But listen, I've got nothing to talk to him about. Trevor sees the world the way he sees it." Sir Cameron said that co-director John Caird, unlike Sir Trevor, has been "an utter gentleman" about things.  (plus)
