Remarquable:

The enormous width (192 feet) of the site allowed Cromie to provide an excellent fan shaped auditorium which for its size is remarkably intimate. The rear of the circle is 170 feet wide and the circle only overhangs the stalls by 10-12 rows providing excellent sightlines from all parts of the house. The Art Deco style decoration in such a large auditorium is slightly underpowered but nevertheless this is an outstanding, nearly unaltered, example of cinema architecture and is Robert Cromie’s finest surviving cinema.

Commentaire:

This show originated in Manchester, and even though it had a somewhat complicated plot, it was effectively yet another compilation musical. It had two TV soap-operas stars and an American rock star in its cast, and was lavishly staged. However, it only managed a ten week run.  (plus)

Commentaire:

With clever animatronic puppets from the Jim Henson studio, and a flying moth over the auditorium, this £4 million production was a satisfactory adaptation of the Rex Harrison/Anthony Newley film version, and provided ideal family entertainment for the best part of a year’s run.  (plus)

Summer Holiday (West End Transfer)
Joué durant  2 mois 2 semaines

Première preview: mar 08 juillet 1997
Première: mar 08 juillet 1997
Dernière: sam 20 septembre 1997


Metteur en scène:
Ultz •  
Chorégraphe:
Queeny Sachs •  
Avec:

Darren Day (Don), Darren J. Bennett (Steve), Mark McGee (Edwin), Rene Zagger (Cyril), Lucie Fentum (Mimsie), Miranda Richards (Angie), Jo Sherwood (Alma), Clare Buckfield (Barbara), Hilary O’Neill (Stella), Ross King (Wallace) 

Commentaire:

This was a gloriously camp re-creation of the film: Paris (berets and an accordion player), Switzerland (clock, bells, sheep and cows), finally Greece (blokes in white skirts, gold waistcoats and red caps); a tendency for the boys to strip continually down to their Y-fronts; an updating with some terrible jokes (one of Don’s gormless male friends gives him a baguette and says, knowingly. “Now you’ve got something else that’s nine inches” - another gets to Paris and says “I really want to go to the Louvre” only to be told “Well, use that tree over there”) - the whole show was gloriously awful. Darren Day managed a very creditable impersonation of Cliff Richard, and Hilary O’Neill stole the show with a totally over-the top comedy performance as the mother. The show was critic-proof, and packed with Cliff Richard/Darren Day fans who screamed their delight from start to finish. It had played a six-month sell-out season at Blackpool Opera House in the summer of 1996, and then toured before this six month season in London.  (plus)

Heathcliff (Original London)
Joué durant  2 mois 2 semaines

Première preview: mer 12 février 1997
Première: mer 12 février 1997
Dernière: sam 03 mai 1997


Metteur en scène:
Frank Dunlop •  
Chorégraphe:
Brad Jeffries •  
Avec:

Cliff Richard (Narrator/Heathcliff), Helen Hobson (Cathy), Jimmy Johnston (Earnshaw/Hindley), Darryl Knock (Edgar), Sara Haggerty (Isabella), Gordon Giltrap (Troubadour), Geoff David, Chris Holland, Sonia Jones, Niki Kitt, Suzanne Parry 

Commentaire:

The music was by John Farrar, a former member of Cliff Richard’s legendary backing group, The Shadows, the lyrics by Tim Rice and the production by the renowned Frank Dunlop. Because of Cliff Richard’s personal reputation as the “Peter Pan of Pop” and the squeaky-clean image of his private life, he was never likely to be taken seriously by the critics. They had great fun suggesting other unlikely pieces of casting: Liberace as King Lear, Max Bygraves as Titus Andronicus, Julie Andrews as Lady Macbeth - and calling the show more “withering than wuthering”. However, for its Birmingham Arena premiere it had a record-breaking £8.5 million advance, with 340,000 tickets sold. It was a sell-out there, in Edinburgh, Manchester and during its London Apollo run, and packed every night with the blue-rinsed army of fans nicknamed the “Cliffhangers”.
Whatever the critics’ view of Cliff Richard as an actor, there was no doubting he was a genuine, twenty-four carat star.  (plus)
