Détails de cette production  


National Theatre - Olivier Theatre - Londres - Angleterre


As the talkies hit the headlines, three New York actors abandon their clapped-out vaudeville act to make it big in Hollywood. Jerry and May have a brilliant idea: a voice school for the brainless stars of the silent movies. Their sweet pal, George, tags along for the ride. He's dumb enough to impress the mighty Glogauer, head of Glogauer Studios, and when Jerry and May are drummed out of town, George comes up smelling of roses.

NICK CURTIS for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Once in a Lifetime is not very funny or very sharp, and director Edward Hall tries to paper over its deficiencies by throwing expensive sets..." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "At the end, I felt as exhausted by the struggle to have a good time as the game cast must be by the strain of trying to provide one." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Dizzily enjoyable revival." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Has a certain period charm." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "There’s no faulting the energy of Hall’s cast or the exotic excellence of Mark Thompson’s designs... I just wasn’t convinced that Once in a Lifetime was worth the effort." ALISTAIR SMITH for THE STAGE says, "It falls down due to a lack of substance and fails to create anything truly memorable. Like its source material it is just a bit too frothy."
