(890)    1821 - Actif

Standing under the canopy of Her Majesty’s Theatre to look across the Haymarket, it Is extremely difficult to compose a picture In one’s mind’s eye of the Immediate area in 1513, when John Norris willed to his wife, Christian, his croft along with an enclosed three-acre toft. Picturesque it probably was not, close to an area where the expanding City of London would meet a developing City of Westminster; but this was the field upon which the Theatre Royal would eventually be built. In 1575 the land was occupied by the widow Golightly, and in 1610 the Earl of Northampton was building stables on it. Around 1614 the Earl of Suffolk bought the stables along with nearby Northampton House and changed their name. By the end of the 17th century Suffolk Street and its environs were laid out, and handsome, ‘well-inhabited’ houses began to appear.
In 1720 John Potter, a local carpenter, built the New French Theatre on the site of the King’s Head, an inn fronting the Haymarket, and a gun shop in Suffolk Street to its rear, demolishing both to make way for the playhouse. Situated In the northwest angle of John Norris’s toft, It lay to the north of the modern theatre, and it was not until about 1730 that it became known as The Little Theatre In the Haymarket. Officially closed in 1737 under the Licensing Act of George II, the theatre managed by various Ingenious, not to say nefarious, means to keep going. In 1767, a royal patent was granted permitting the house to ‘exhibit plays’ between May and September in an enlarged and improved building renamed the Theatre Royal - thus breaking the grip on the theatrical profession held by Drury Lane and Covent Garden, the only two other playhouses licensed by royal patent. Eventually, however, with the manager George Colman failing to run the theatre efficiently from prison, where he was in residence for debt, the building was closed around 1818-19, and lost in subsequent conversion works around 1819-20.
The decline and demise of the theatre may to some extent be accounted for by the general dilapidation of its surroundings, and It was reborn when architect John Nash produced a regeneration scheme aimed at revitalizing Suffolk Street and Its immediate neighbourhood in the early 1820s. Talented architects such as J. P. Gandy-Deering, one of three eminent architect brothers, and William Wilkins, who designed the National Gallery in 1834, built here - all under the strict design control of Nash, who himself provided a number of houses, Including No. 6 Suffolk Street, the Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists (restored in 1979).
As part of his grand plan Nash encouraged the rebuilding of the theatre as a focal point on the axis of Charles II Street, and to this end he proposed a deep, giant pedimented, six-columned Corinthian portico with five arched doorways giving access to the pit, boxes, galleries and box office. This configuration echoed the flat-roofed four-columned portico of the earlier building. Above the proposed portico, a sheer attic wall pierced only by a recessed panel of nine radial glazed oculi would be provided. Like the front, the Suffolk Street elevation is stuccoed and distinctly domestic in character. Internally the auditorium was almost square, with two levels of boxes extending around three sides and enclosing the pit. Access corridors ran behind the boxes from an entrance lobby.
The theatre reopened on 4 July 1821 under the management of David Morris, George Colman’s brother-in-law, with a production of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals. In 1843 ‘extensive alterations' were made when the stage was pushed back to allow the introduction of orchestra stalls, and pit seats were abolished to be replaced by the more expensive stalls.
Squire Bancroft, who had managed the Scala in Charlotte Street from 1871, took over at the Haymarket In 1879, immediately initiating a rebuilding programme and commissioning architect C. J. Phipps to remodel the Interior, modernizing it and bringing it up to date with a picture-frame proscenium and a reseated auditorium. Decorative plasterwork was executed by George Jackson and Sons, a firm that retained in its workshops until the late 20th century a wonderful collection of 18th- century moulds.
Herbert Beerbohm Tree, one of the last great actor-managers, ran the theatre from 1888 until he moved to Her Majesty's in 1896. In October that same year Frederick Harrison and Cyril Maude, who moved to the Playhouse In 1907, took over and in 1904 set out to modernize yet again, engaging architects Charles Stanley Peach and S. D. Adshead to carry out the work - an odd choice, as Peach’s reputation was built on electricity generating stations and his design for the Centre Court buildings at Wimbledon. The work was confined in the main to the auditorium, where a modem structural frame replaced the perhaps less stable existing fabric. The result Is a stunning essay In elegant Louis XVI decoration, surpassed nowhere in London.
In a deep cellar behind the proscenium arch, 19th-century timber stage machinery still survives today; three bridges remain in situ with original sliders, a rarity indeed. Between 1915 and 1939 a three-piece sliding stage was Installed using
boat trucks. Regrettably, the thunder run was removed in 1970 to accommodate a new counterweight system.
A plaque on the back of the building records that the first performances of Oscar Wilde's A Woman of No Importance (1893) and An Ideal Husband (1895) took place here.
Historically of tremendous importance, this theatre has been the subject of books and lectures on all of its aspects; and doubtless one day, when the fabric becomes unsteady through age, the archaeologists will have their say, too.

1720. John Potter builds his theatre on the site of the King’s Head Inn / 1821. The Theatre Royal designed by John Nash opens / 1843. Alterations to stage and auditorium / 1879. Architect C. J. Phipps remodels the auditorium / 1904. Complete rebuilding of auditorium, preserving front of house and backstage, by architect Charles Stanley Peach.

Avec: Paul Anderson (Tarfuffe), Audrey Fleurot (Elmire). 

Commentaire: Adaptation de Christopher Hampton.

L.A. Present day. French media tycoon Orgon has re-located to Tinseltown with his family, his heart set on becoming Hollywood royalty. With a new studio to his name, and a palatial Beverly Hills mansion, his empire seems infallible. But all is not as it seems as Orgon falls under the seductive spell of Tartuffe, a radical American evangelist. So comprehensively has Tartuffe hoodwinked Orgon that he looks set to steal his fortune, drive away his son, seduce his wife and marry his daughter.

This thrilling new adaptation of Molière’s classic comedy, penned by Academy, BAFTA and Olivier award winner Christopher Hampton (ART, Dangerous Liaisons, Atonement), and directed by the former dramaturg of the French People’s National Theatre Gerald Garutti, will premiere as the West End’s first ever dual language theatre production, alternating between English and French with surtitles throughout.  (plus)

Commentaire: This was an updated version of the Dumas novel “La Dame aux Camélias” and was received very favourably by the critics, with special praise for Ruthie Henshall. However, it was a dark tale and failed to catch on with the public. Originally scheduled to run until the beginning of November, lack of business led to its early closing on September 13 th . Since then it has undergone major re-writing and the new version has been staged in Japan and in the Czech Republic  (plus)

Commentaire: This production came into the West End following a UK tour, and received a very mixed reaction from the critics. It was accused of having a wobbly set, acting pitched at pantomime level, and very slow direction. On the other hand the choreography was praised for its energy and the cast for their enthusiasm. It ran for just over three months.  (plus)

Commentaire: With a cast of 9 singers and 12 dancers, orchestra of 16 musicians and a medley of 36 songs associated with Ray Charles, this was a tribute compilation staged just a year after his death. It was billed as “a new musical created by David King”. The critics hated it - claiming false pretences, since it was nothing more than a concert, and claimed the loudest sound of the evening was that of Ray Charles spinning in his grave.  (plus)

Commentaire: A ten minute sketch inside a 30 minute TV comedy series had been expanded into a three hour musical. As a result, the first half and second halves were virtually two different shows. The whole thing was a muddle, but with its hugely talented cast, and its satire ranging from “Crossroads” to “Les Mis” and Starbucks to Sondheim, and with Victoria Wood and Julie Walters alternating in the lead role, it attracted an audience of fanatical supporters who roared with delight at every familiar gag and malfunctioning prop. In 2006 the show was completely re-written for a major UK tour, so that the entire show was now the “straight” musical performance of “Acorn Antiques”. Mrs Overall was played by Ria Jones and the tour received excellent notices and was felt to be much better for the changes. It is this revised version which is now regarded as the “real” show.  (plus)

Joué durant  2 mois 3 semaines

Nb de représentations: 95 représentations
Première preview: lun. 22 mai 2000
Première: mar. 06 juin 2000
Dernière: sam. 26 août 2000

Metteur en scène: Chris Tookey •

Avec: Brian Blessed (Dickens/Gradgrind), Roy Hudd (Samuel Sleary), Ann Emery (Mrs Sleary/Mrs Gradgrind), Helen Anker (Louisa), Malcolm Rennie (Bounderby), Peter Blake (Harthouse), Susan-Jane Tanner, Matt Rawle, Ray C. Davis 

Commentaire: The circus-format derived from the appearance in the novel of Samuel Sleary’s travelling circus, but the whole jolly format came over as a send-up of the novel, rather than a musical. The musical style ranged from Gilbert & Sullivan to romantic ballads and vaudeville numbers and the show itself was amiable, silly and old fashioned. With Brian Blessed (“never knowingly underplayed”) and Roy Hudd in an extension of his glorious music-hall acts, this was a curious mish-mash, and came off on August 26th after just three months.  (plus)

Commentaire: Based on “The Country Wife” by William Wycherley, this was described as a “Carry On” comedy set to music. They either loved it, or they hated it. One critic commented: “I’m told that ‘Lust’ was performed to great acclaim at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch; a more telling indictment of Essex Man as a cultural arbiter would be hard to imagine.” It ran for three and a half months.  (plus)
