Stepping out - the musical (1997)

Compositeur: Denis King

Parolier: Mary Stewart-Davis

Librettiste: Richard Harris

Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités


A group of seemingly hopeless amateurs from a variety of backgrounds sign on for a weekly evening class, none of them bent on fame or life in the chorus line, their common motive purely a couple of hours a week away from home, where they can briefly escape the cards life has dealt them.

Quelques commentaires

“A lot of people thought the play Stepping Out was a musical, but it was a play about people who dance. Now it’s been totally re-shaped as a musical. I’ve had to change and cut the play drastically to accommodate 14 songs. STEPPING OUT - THE MUSICAL should be seen as an entirely new piece. It’s one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done because I like the genre so much. I love seeing the choreographer working--we’ve got a very good one, Kenn Oldfield--I love listening to people sing--I love listening to Denis King playing the piano and somebody singing. I just find that very exciting. Something about the music lifts me, and when the band arrives, there’s another lift. I think most people get a lift out of music; it’s an emotional charge. I hope we get the same feeling that we did with the play. The idea is to just give people a good time, really. A happy couple of hours in the theatre.” Richard Harris

Commentaires :
The critic, Sheridan Morley, described it as the perfect British antidote to “A Chorus Line”. Where the Broadway show was all about the desperation to succeed at all showbiz costs, the British version is about the quieter pleasures of failure and inefficiency, and the joys of pulling together.
