Commentaire:

The Israeli composer Shuki Levy’s original idea was a show about the siege at Masada in 73AD. His collaborator, TV writer Glenn Berenbeim, suggested instead a play-within-a-play set inside the Warsaw Ghetto. The end result proved very controversial. The Warsaw Ghetto where 360,000 Jews were sealed off and subjected to starvation, disease and ultimate death was itself not an ideal setting for a musical. For some, telling a Holocaust story by means of “offensively banal, soft-pop music that limps in train with . . .trivial lyrics” (Evening Standard) seemed in the worst possible taste. The show was accused of “bumming a ride on the Holocaust”, endowing second-rate art with an air of moral significance. But for others, it was a brave and sincere attempt at “serious” musical theatre, with a magnificent central performance from Peter Polycarpou, some impressive songs and a highly effective and moving way of keeping alive the message of the Holocaust. The show tried out in Plymouth in July 2007, and finally opened in the West End on November 19 th , following 15 previews from November 4 th . As a result of some very damning reviews, it closed on December 20th, after just one month.  (plus)

Commentaire:

Based on the 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell and the subsequent film–script, the epic “Gone with the Wind” had become one of the most popular and best-remembered stories of the 20th Century. Drawing on his experience with “Nicholas Nickleby” in 1980, Trevor Nunn used the same technique to cram the 1000 page novel into three and a half hours onstage: relying heavily on multiple narrators who rattle through the plot by interspersing dialogue with large chunks of narration straight from the novel. Accordingly, the songs seem constantly to interrupt the proceedings rather than deepening or adding to the story. The production included some tentative efforts at political correctness by supplying the slaves with some attractive gospel songs and spirituals and by turning Prissy (the lazy and stupid slave-girl from the film version) into a sanitised, witty would-be teacher. However, the film’s splendid epic quality is sorely missed - the much-remembered burning of Atlanta sequence is represented by some orange lights and the burning of a Confederate flag – and with 36 actors playing over 90 parts the show often becomes a blur of activity, some of it blundering and clumsy, and some of it moving so quickly that the audience could not keep up with the plot. There was praise for the performers and the design, but, all in all, it was felt to be a self-indulgent, prolonged vanity exercise for the composer and the director, and a painfully drawn out and tedious exercise for the audience. Although initially bookings were accepted up to the end of September, the show was finally withdrawn on June 14 th after 79 performances.  (plus)

Commentaire:

Based on T.S.Eliot’s children’s book “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats”. Originally Judi Dench was cast as Grizabella but she suffered a leg injury during rehearsals and was forced to leave the show. The lyrics for fragments of T.S.Eliot’s verse, and the song became one of the greatest hits of the 20th Century, with over 600 different recordings. In January 1996 “Cats” became the
longest running UK musical up to that time, overtaking “Chorus Line”, when it achieved its 6,138th performance. On June 19th 1997 it became the longest running show to date in New York.
It played a total of 8,949 performances in London. Its final performance was on its 21 st birthday, 11 May 2002, and broadcast on a large screen in Covent Garden to the delight of fans who could not acquire a ticket for the final performance. It held the record as London's longest running musical until 8 October 2006, when it was surpassed by “Les Miserables”.  (plus)
