This production was much praised for Jeremy Sams’ new lyrics which were felt to reflect the contemporary spirit intended by Brecht’s original. It was set in the future - 2001 - with the coronation of Britain’s next king, William V.

Commentaire:

This was the first collaboration of Ira Gershwin following the death of his brother, and ran for 467 performances in New York in 1941. The leading role was played by Gertrude Lawrence, and the show made a star of newcomer Danny Kaye in the role of a camp photographer with a show-stopping patter number “Tchaikowsky”.
The musical is so constructed that all the numbers are sung during the dream sequences that Liza describes to her doctor. The only exception is the song “My Ship” which serves a special part of the plot: it is a half-remembered song from Liza’s childhood and because Charley is the only man who can complete the song for her, he wins Liza’s love.
55 years after its Broadway debut, this was its first London production, though it did have a production at Nottingham in 1981 with Celeste Holm. The critics found it fascinating and important, but felt it suffered by comparison with “Guys & Dolls” which was currently the opposition under the same National Theatre roof  (plus)

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


Metteur en scène:
Ultz •  
Chorégraphe:

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)

Praised for its lavish scenery and costumes, the rest of the show was heavily criticised with phrases like “a poorly structured and under-written book”, “dreary music and trite lyrics”. It ran for just ten weeks.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The performing area at the Riverside Studios had been transformed into a park, with acres of Astroturf, and the audience sitting at white garden tables and served Pimms and cucumber sandwiches. At certain points in the show the audience were actively encouraged to get out of their seats and join in the dancing.  (plus)
