A sung-through musical with a three-piece band and a cast of twelve, this was effectively a vanity production - nearly all the work of one man, David Reeves. The classic Oscar Wilde story of a man who stays young and beautiful while his portrait shows the signs of his age and decadence was intended as a study of the distance between appearance and truth. This adaptation lacked any subtlety, depth or wit and was unanimously damned as a dreadful waste of time. It lasted just one week. (plus)

The original Broadway show opened in March 1962 and ran for 300 performances - notable for marking the debut of 19 year old Barbra Streisand, who nightly stopped the show with the song “Miss Marmalstein”. During the run of this show she made a real-life marriage to her leading man, Elliot ould.
This fringe London premiere with a cast of 20 and a band of just three received very mixed notices. (plus)
