Commentaires :
“Rags” opened on Broadway on August 21st 1986 and closed three nights and one matinee later - by any reckoning a major flop. Between the matinee and evening on the last day the cast organised a protest march down Broadway calling for the show to be saved. Seven months after it closed most of the cast were re-assembled to make a recording of music from the show (though the original leading lady, opera singer Teresa Stratas, was not available and was replaced by another opera diva, Julia Migenes.) This CD earned much respect and led to a much smaller-scale (two pianos only) version being re-written for the off-Broadway American Jewish Theatre in the summer of 1991.
This production at the Kenneth More Theatre was the British premiere, and was re-assembled with bits from both previous American versions. It attracted much interest and was attended by several British and European managers with a view to further European productions. Sadly, none materialised.

Commentaires :
This was the first London production of the “original” Broadway version. The 1987 London premiere had new songs and some alterations requested by Cameron Mackintosh, but Sondheim ultimately decided he preferred this earlier version. This production used Maria Bjomson’s original West End costumes, kindly loaned by Cameron Mackintosh.
