Commentaires : The first version premièred in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 10 July 1996. Edward Hardy worked on the lyrics and Declan Donnellan directed. It was a spectacular production but not only were the reviews mixed there were also some major concerns expressed by the public and the creative team alike. In the early weeks the creative team worked hard and quickly to clarify the narrative, rearrange some of the material and remove one pretty but non-essential song. But the story did not have the emotional tug on the heartstrings that their previous work had. Stephen Clark took over as co-lyricist and small changes were continually being made.

Presse

Commentaire

Based on the 1982 French film “The Return of Martin Guerre”, and a 1993 re-make “Sommersby”, this was a £3.75 million mega-musical which had apparently been seven years in the planning. The original previews were cancelled and delayed for three weeks because of technical difficulties, leading to threatened court-action from disappointed ticket-holders demanding compensation for expenses incurred. It was an impressive, worthy but somewhat dark and humourless show and received a series of very unenthusiastic reviews. Business dropped off, but rather than abandon the show, Cameron Mackintosh spent another half million pounds on a major re-write, including new songs (and the services of yet another lyricist, Stephen Clark) and much revision. Four months after opening, the show closed for three days and was then re-launched as the “New Martin Guerre”. It was shorter and more focussed on the romantic story, with less religious conflict and more emphasis on the character of Bertrande. However, it closed in February 1998, in spite of winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, allegedly with total losses of £7 million.
