Commentaire

Eight actor-musician-singers performed all the roles and played all the music in this completely re-written version, which abandoned nearly all Gilbert’s dialogue and all Sullivan’s original orchestration in favour Mafia and spaghetti gags and boogie-woogie/cool jazz/easy listening . The production had originated at the Watermill, Newbury, where John Doyle had been pioneering a new kind of approach to musicals using actor-musicians accompanying themselves as they perform. This had brought interesting new interpretations to his earlier “Irma la Douce”, “Cabaret” and “Carmen”, but it was generally felt not to have worked with such a period piece as Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Gondoliers”. It was booked into the Apollo for a limited ten week season.
