Commentaire

Nine years earlier this show had flopped in the West End, with one critic wise-cracking “Excuse me, where’s the nearest Exodus?”. This fringe revival did not fare any better, being described as a strange, rather dull musical, and the remark “like any good musical, this one needs a good book rather than simply plundering the Good Book itself.”

Commentaires : 'The opening of Children of Eden in the West End of London coincided with the start of war with Iraq and one of the worst slumps in audience attendence in recent years; as a result this spectacular musical was unable to find its audience.
Mais ce n'est pas le seul problème…
A “new biblical musical” told the story of the Old Testament from the Creation until just after the Flood. In a kind of throwback to the earlier success of Stephen Schwartz’s “Godspell”, the characters appeared in cute costumes, some of them appearing as cute, furry little animals. God and Eve were portrayed as jolly black performers, and Cain’s slaying of Abel was performed “in the humdrum context of a family spat”. The scenery was domed scaffolding, with disco and laser effects, and according to one critic: “The Garden of Eden was decorated in tatty hanging drapes and was like unto the current state of Liberty’s in its carpet and fabric sales department”. With very mixed critical reaction, the general cry was “Where is the nearest Exodus”? The show lost all its investment and closed after ten weeks.
