Commentaire:

Tacky, depressing, poor singing, over-amplified and incoherent sound, dreadful lyrics, monotonous music and dire choreography, merely a string of third rate songs (27 of them) played by a competent band and performed by an incompetent bunch of actors - these were just some of the words used by the critics. “Carnaby Street is certainly far out - though not far enough for my liking”.  (plus)

Commentaire:

This has to be one of the most bizarre shows in the history of musical theatre. It was the brainchild of Duke Minks, former road-manager for the 60s pop group Unit 4 Plus 2, and now an advisor to the Republic of Nauro, a Pacific Island (pop. 8,000) whose major export was guano (bird-droppings rich in phosphate). He persuaded the Nauro Government to finance this £2 million musical from its guano profits as a way of raising its international profile. The President of Nauro hosted a lavish first-night party for many international and show business guests. Because “Leonardo” followed the disastrous “Which Witch”, it could not be described as the “worst musical ever to hit the West End”, but for most critics it came close. The general reaction was summed up as: “Leonardo is marginally more entertaining than a pile of guano - but not a lot”.  (plus)

Karen Louise Hebden •  
Chorégraphe:
Terry John Bates •  
Avec:

Poppy Tierney/Phillipa Healey (Tess), Maxine Fone (Young Tess), Jonathan Monks/Robert Irons (Angel Clare), Alasdair Harvey (Alec D’Urberville) 

Commentaire:

Adapted from Thomas Hardy’s novel. The critic Bill Hagerty summed it up as “Thomas Hardy’s heroine Tess was a mess, wretched and doomed, and the musical at the Savoy is much the same” This was a sung-through show which included country dancing by “buxom elderly milkmaids frolicking on the kind of village green last seen in Palladium pantomimes circa 1955” (The Spectator). At the opening performance the role of Angel Clare was played at the last moment by the understudy, Robert Irons, replacing Jonathan Monks (“who had the good fortune to be unwell” - Mail on Sunday). The show was universally criticised for its mind-numbing banality, and its musical hubris. It ran for ten weeks.  (plus)
