Détails de cette production  


Arts theatre - Main stage - Londres - Angleterre


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.

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.
