Détails de cette production  


Phoenix Theatre - Londres - Angleterre


The opening image has the coffin of Elvis Presley being loaded onto a hearse, and then the story is told in flashback - the older, bloated and self-mocking Elvis in the last month of his life, when he has become a manic pill-popper, sated with adulation, possessing everything he wanted his money to buy. And then the younger unmatchable, legendary brilliant performer who changed the history of pop music.

Simon Bowman’s re-creation of young Elvis at the peak of his professional life was much praised, and Martin Shaw’s portrayal of a legend in decay was similarly acclaimed. The writing and liberties taken with the real life-story were criticised, but the show itself was a great hit with the critics, and won the Evening Standard Best Musical of the Year award. The production originated at Liverpool Playhouse.
