Commentaire:

The original London production was at the Empire Theatre on April 7th 1920, starring Edith Day, who had also starred in the Broadway premiere the previous year. The show was revived in the USA in 1973 with Debbie Reynolds and was originally directed by Sir John Gielgud who was replaced in rehearsals by Gower Champion. Then Gower Champion himself was replaced when he refused to direct Jane Powell as Debbie Reynolds’ replacement.  (plus)

Chorégraphe:
Norman Maen •  
Avec:

Bruce Forsyth (Fred Limelight), Valerie Walsh (Evie Limelight), Katie Budd (Sam Limelight), Derek Griffiths (Reg), Tony Maiden (Kim) 

Commentaire:

The show is a series of sketches evoking street-comer rip-off artists and tawdry tourist tat, using the hit songs Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley had written for their earlier shows. “The Good Old Bad Old Days” is performed by Fred and Reg as two incontinent drunks, and “Nothing Can Stop Me Now” is performed by a quivering goalkeeper. With Bruce Forsyth ad-libbing throughout in his accepted breezy manner, this was a variety show cum revue rather than any kind of structured musical.  (plus)

Commentaire:

This London version originated at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley and was heavily revised, with the emphasis switched from the character of Sugar to the show’s star and director, Tommy Steele. It was also given a new title – the same as the famous film. It was damned by the critics – inevitably known as “Some Like it Luke Warm”. Tommy Steele was forced to withdraw from the cast following an accident, and as a result, the show soon closed, apparently having lost over £2 million.  (plus)
