Commentaires : Based on the 1911 Hungarian play by Ferenc Molnar, this was adapted with a bitter-sweet, tango- and waltz-filled, elegant score. (It has some remarkable parallels with Harold Pinter’s play “The Lover”). The show won a Best New Musical Award in the USA in 1995 and a major International Musical of the Year competition in Denmark in 1996, but the London critics thought that, charming as it was, it lacked bite.

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH of The EVENING STANDARD mirrors my view when he says the musical "Never bites."

BILL HAGERTY of THE NEWS OF THE WORLD has mixed feelings describing the musical as " warm and uplifting" but goes on to say "the stardust turns to sequins and we are left with a pretty but empty illusion".

PETER HEPPLE of THE STAGE says the show " works a treat at the Donmar."

JOHN PETER of THE SUNDAY TIMES describes the show as "pleasant but slightly oversweet."

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says the musical is "bright, frequently funny and reasonably tuneful."
