Historique du musical

Génèse du musical

In 1984 Richard wrote a show called WICKED LIPS which was due to play the Donmar Warehouse, in London, but due to copyright problems the show was banned only hours before it was due to open. However, a private performance did take place, and was so well received that Richard was determined it would return. Andrew Lloyd-Webber refused to have any new words to his music, thus the show received a one-night only “private” performance at the Donmar with Valerie Walsh, Tudor Davies and Cheryl Taylor.

It took four years, and in 1988 WICKED LIPS finally opened at the Donmar to rave reviews and public acclaim. Jack Tinker wrote, “I offer my thanks for one of the slickest pieces of impertinence it has been my pleasure to enjoy.” It was an immense achievement for Richard, as not only did he write and produce it, but also directed and appeared in it

Mise en scène : Richard Kates
Chorégraphie :
Avec : Richard Kates, Cheryl Taylor, Buster Skeggs, Tim Burley
Commentaires :
This was Richard Kates’s second attempt to put on this satirical send-up of everything West End. An earlier attempt in August 1984 was scuppered by Andrew Lloyd-Webber refusing to have any new words to his music, thus the show received a one-night only “private” performance at the Donmar with Valerie Walsh, Tudor Davies and Cheryl Taylor. Four years later this revival featured send-ups of Liza Minelli, Tommy Steele, Julie Andrews, a well-known agent fiddling on the roof, and two well-known managers singing “Anything You can Do, I Can do Cheaper”. It was clearly aimed at the “in-crowd”, and with its 11.30pm late night slot twice a week - that is the crowd it got!
