Commentaire:

This pocket-sized revival with a small band half hidden behind clothes rails was a welcome reminder of this tuneful, joyful show, and although staged in a tiny space, the Fosse-inspired choreography was much praised. For some performances the understudy, Stephanie Nielson, appeared in the leading role of Babe Williams.  (plus)

Commentaire:

Inside the cavernous dank, dark Southwark railway arch which is the Union Theatre, this was a perfect setting for a chamber version of “Sweeney Todd”. And with a 17 strong cast, accompanied by piano and pedal-organ, this production upheld the great reputation earned by earlier Union Theatre musicals (the all-male “Mikado”, “Annie Get Your Gun” and “The Pajama Game”). The production was a sell-out from the very beginning with nightly queues for returns.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The show had waited almost fifty years for this London premiere. The Landor is a larger space than many other fringe venues, so the decision to use actor-musicians rather than a separate band was considered to be a money-saving device rather than an artistic decision – and it was generally felt to have handicapped an already dated and clunky musical.  (plus)

Commentaire:

“State Fair” was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s only film musical, first made in 1945 and then re-made in 1962 with Pat Boone and Ann-Margret. It was first adapted into a stage musical in 1969, and premiered in St Louis, but it was not very well received. Twenty-three years later a completely new stage version was created, using a different combination of songs, and was staged at the 1995 Iowa State Fair. This version opened on Broadway in March 1996, the last show to be produced by the legendary David Merrick. It ran for just 110 performances, and was generally regarded as a piece of old-fashioned nostalgia . This fringe-theatre version was its European premiere and opened to generally positive reviews. Due to popular demand its original closing date of 22 August was extended three weeks to September 12th.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The show opened on Broadway on May 28 th 1953 and closed after 358 performances. It opened to an enormous advance, and had recovered its production costs within six months. When it closed, after ten months, it had made a small profit of $100,000, and later played a six week season in Chicago. For anyone except Rodgers and Hammerstein this would have represented a success, but the show is usually classed as a failure when compared to their other mega-hits. (An unknown Shirley MacLaine was in the chorus on Broadway, and an equally unknown Shirley Jones was in the Chicago chorus.). Subsequent short-run off-Broadway revivals were staged in 1970 and 2002, but the show has never had a major Broadway revival. This fringe theatre version was billed as its European premiere – 47 years after its first performance.  (plus)
