Commentaire

Original ly created at the Theatre RoyStratford East for a limited season in February 1959. This was revived at Stratford for Christmas 1959 and then transferred to the West End in February 1960. Originally Frank Norman, a former member of the Soho underworld, wrote the piece as a straight play, but Joan Littlewood decided to make it a musical. As was the policy of the Theatre Workshop Company, the cast was responsible for much of the dialogue and action in their improvisation sessions.

Chorégraphie : Liz Marsh
Avec : Steve Edwin (Fred), Diana Croft (Lily), Dale Superville, Tony Hunt, Liz Marsh, Nina Lucking, Richard Brightiff, Phil Hearne
Commentaires : Although staged at the furthest reaches of Greater London, and not really qualifying for a “West End” listing, this was a notable production since it was the first major revival in almost 40 years. Lionel Bart himself was working on the production, and preparing some new lyrics, when he died, just two weeks before the opening night. It was staged with the cast doubling as the orchestra and playing their own instruments.

Commentaires : This was its first West End showing in over 50 years (though it did have an outer-London revival in 1999). It was welcomed as a jolly piece of dated nostalgia.
