Commentaires :
the knives were out for this show even before it opened. It was written and produced by John Robinson, who four years earlier had been responsible for “The Man in the Mask”, the biggest flop of the season. During previews, which started on July 16 th , the actor Jay Benedict walked out, and his role was taken over with less than a week’s notice by Christopher Howell. By the time the show had its official opening there were reports of many audience walk-outs, and “Too Close to the Sun” had already been nicknamed “To Close on Sunday”. With nondescript tunes and lyrics that included lines like “My words explode right off the page/With a powerful narrative energy” the show was doomed, and came off on August 8 th , after just two weeks. One critic quipped: “To have written and produced one West End fiasco may be regarded as a misfortune; to have written and produced two, looks like hubris.”
