Résumé

The two mother-fixated men at the heart of this musical murder show are the Jewish Police Detective Morris Brummell, pursued by his suffocating mother, Flora; and Christopher “Kit” Gill, a failed actor haunted by the ghost of his successful actress mother. There is a mother-fixated woman, too, Sarah Stone - her mother is a rich socialite only interested in glamorous charities. Kit decides the only way to out-do his mother’s fame is to become a serial killer, carrying out his crimes in various disguises including a priest, a flamenco dancer, and a stiletto heeled woman. Morris can earn respect from his mother if he manages to find the killer. Sarah is a potential witness, and, after questioning, falls in love with Morris.

Presse

Commentaire

Based on the novel by William Goldman and the 1967 film starring Lee Remick and Rod Steiger, this had a top-class star cast appearing in what was generally regarded as London’s tackiest theatre and a very cheap production. Donna McKechnie playing all the murder victims and Kit’s mother, Joan Savage as a superbly funny Jewish mother, Tim Flavin, top-quality dancer and singer - all were highly praised, but the show itself received very mixed notices and ran just three weeks.
