Since its beginnings at the end of the 17th century, Old Compton Street - named after Henry Compton, former vicar of the now ruined St Anne’s Church, Soho, Dean of the Chapel Royal and Bishop of London - has evolved as a busy, sometimes quite exotic, range of small shops and bars, with, particularly in its early days, a decidedly French flavour. A matter of yards away at 49 Dean Street, almost opposite St Anne's Church, is the French House, a pub frequented by actors, artists and poets, including Dylan Thomas and Brendan Behan, that became the headquarters of the Free French Forces during the Second World War.
If one looks about one from a position in front of the theatre, which occupies the angle with Greek Street, it would seem perfectly feasible to drown in an ocean of pleasure without going very far at all, surrounded as one is by restaurants of infinite variety, strip bars, sex shops, ‘models at first floor, please ring’, cinemas and theatres. Buitt on the site of a draper’s shop known as The Emporium, the Prince Edward uncomfortably resembles a cinema, it was competently if slightly forbiddingly designed in 1930 by Edward A. Stone, architect of the Whitehall (now Trafalgar Studios) and Piccadilly Theatres, with interior works in fuchsia and gold by French designers Marc Henri and Gaston Laverdet, who also worked at the Whitehall and Piccadilly. The English palazzo-style building sits heavily: raised above a polished granite base, the building is faced in finely laid brown brick with deeply recessed joints, the front elevation relieved to some extent by its stuccoed attic storey and green shuttered windows under heavily bracketed and coffered eaves. At ground level a modem canopy, added in 1993, shelters five pairs of brass entrance doors.
Inside, a large, welcoming circular foyer gives access to the surprisingly grand auditorium, revitalized in 1993 by architects Renton Howard Wood Levine, through the inspirational drive of Bernard (later Lord) Delfont and Cameron Mackintosh. The whole is decorated in a combination of deep red and old gold. Prior to 1993, the theatre had undergone a catalogue of changes. Opening on 3 April 1930, it was converted in 1936 to a cabaret-restaurant and renamed the London Casino. Opening on 2 April that same year, the theatre closed again in 1939 to become a services boxing club. At the end of the war, theatre use was restored until 1954, when the relatively short-lived Cinerama craze came to London. The year 1978 saw live shows and almost immediate success restored to the theatre, with Elaine Paige starring in both Evita (1978) and Chess (1986), followed in 1989 by Cole Porter’s Anything Goes, Mamma Mia! (1999) and Mary Poppins (2004).

Commentaire: This turned out to be much more than a jukebox musical, and was superbly directed as a kind of show-business documentary saga moving across the decades and also providing concert-style performance interludes of some of the best-loved songs of the era. It opened on Broadway in November 2005 and won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The London production was re-created by the New York team, and won an Olivier as the Best New Musical of 2008.

Nb de représentations: 1283 représentations
Première preview: lun. 06 décembre 2004
Première: mer. 15 décembre 2004
Dernière: sam. 12 janvier 2008

Chorégraphe: Matthew Bourne •  
Avec: Laura Michelle Kelly (Mary Poppins), Gavin Lee (Bert), David Haig (George Banks), Linzi Hateley (Winifred Banks), Rosemary Ashe (Miss Andrew), Julia Sutton (Bird Woman), Kevin Williams (Park Keeper) 

Commentaire: The musical had been re-worked to incorporate more of the original P.L.Travers’ stories than had appeared in the film, and to remove some of the cartoon effects. The children were ruder and more snobbish, Mrs Banks no longer quite so dizzy, Mr Banks more workaholic, and Mary Poppins herself far more eccentric and formidable than Julie Andrews. It played two months of try-outs at the Bristol Hippodrome before moving into the West End. All in all this was more “real” and less “cockneyfied” than the film. It was also a technically awe-inspiring show with its special effects, including Bert tap-dancing up one side of the proscenium arch and then continuing upside-down until descending on the other side, and, of course, Mary Poppins flying over the heads of the audience at the finale.  (plus)

Commentaire: Incorporating some two dozen ABBA songs, this had a workable and funny plot-line, inspired by Willy Russell’s “Shirley Valentine” and a Gina Lollobrigida film called “Buona Sera, Mrs Campbell”. Mamma Mia” was camp, fast-moving, great fun and a big hit with the critics and public alike. (It was a Broadway hit in 2001, and in 2008 became a successful film, with Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan).

Commentaire: This production, with a cast of 57 and directed by the legendary Hal Prince, had originated in Toronto, then transferred to Broadway, where it was highly praised and heaped with awards. It was hugely spectacular, superbly staged and performed, and felt by many to be one of the finest productions to grace the London stage in many a year. It ran for 21 weeks on a limited term engagement.  (plus)

Dernière: sam. 28 février 1998

Metteur en scène: Declan Donnellan •

Commentaire: The first version premièred in London at the Prince Edward Theatre on 10 July 1996. Edward Hardy worked on the lyrics and Declan Donnellan directed. It was a spectacular production but not only were the reviews mixed there were also some major concerns expressed by the public and the creative team alike. In the early weeks the creative team worked hard and quickly to clarify the narrative, rearrange some of the material and remove one pretty but non-essential song. But the story did not have the emotional tug on the heartstrings that their previous work had. Stephen Clark took over as co-lyricist and small changes were continually being made.  (plus)

(In the revised version the role of Bertrande was shared with Rebecca Lock) 

Commentaire: Based on the 1982 French film “The Return of Martin Guerre”, and a 1993 re-make “Sommersby”, this was a £3.75 million mega-musical which had apparently been seven years in the planning. The original previews were cancelled and delayed for three weeks because of technical difficulties, leading to threatened court-action from disappointed ticket-holders demanding compensation for expenses incurred. It was an impressive, worthy but somewhat dark and humourless show and received a series of very unenthusiastic reviews. Business dropped off, but rather than abandon the show, Cameron Mackintosh spent another half million pounds on a major re-write, including new songs (and the services of yet another lyricist, Stephen Clark) and much revision. Four months after opening, the show closed for three days and was then re-launched as the “New Martin Guerre”. It was shorter and more focussed on the romantic story, with less religious conflict and more emphasis on the character of Bertrande. However, it closed in February 1998, in spite of winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, allegedly with total losses of £7 million.  (plus)

Commentaire: This London version originated at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley and was heavily revised, with the emphasis switched from the character of Sugar to the show’s star and director, Tommy Steele. It was also given a new title – the same as the famous film. It was damned by the critics – inevitably known as “Some Like it Luke Warm”. Tommy Steele was forced to withdraw from the cast following an accident, and as a result, the show soon closed, apparently having lost over £2 million.  (plus)

Commentaire: This stage production cost over £2 million and contained a 50 piece orchestra and hi-tech computerised scenery and projections. The sheer spectacle and technical achievement were praised, but the show itself was a very great disappointment and considered to be one man’s egotistic folly.
It ran just over seven weeks.  (plus)

Commentaire: 'The opening of Children of Eden in the West End of London coincided with the start of war with Iraq and one of the worst slumps in audience attendence in recent years; as a result this spectacular musical was unable to find its audience.
Mais ce n'est pas le seul problème…
A “new biblical musical” told the story of the Old Testament from the Creation until just after the Flood. In a kind of throwback to the earlier success of Stephen Schwartz’s “Godspell”, the characters appeared in cute costumes, some of them appearing as cute, furry little animals. God and Eve were portrayed as jolly black performers, and Cain’s slaying of Abel was performed “in the humdrum context of a family spat”. The scenery was domed scaffolding, with disco and laser effects, and according to one critic: “The Garden of Eden was decorated in tatty hanging drapes and was like unto the current state of Liberty’s in its carpet and fabric sales department”. With very mixed critical reaction, the general cry was “Where is the nearest Exodus”? The show lost all its investment and closed after ten weeks.  (plus)

Commentaire: Ever since this show was first performed (in 1925) it was known the original book, created by Guy Bolton and P.G.Wodehouse, had to be re-written at the last moment because the show involved a shipwreck scene and this would be too tasteless following a real-life shipwreck at that time. However, in the 1990s it was finally revealed this story was completely untrue. The original script had never included a shipwreck - it was simply too scrappy and poor to be used.  (plus)

Commentaire: This touring production was as near as possible a complete re-creation of the original version from 40 years earlier - with some added significance in that Jerome Robbins had died a few months prior to its revival. Several critics felt the magnificent show had a whiff of mothballs about it, and needed a completely new approach (like the current “Oklahoma” at the National Theatre.) The “dream ballet” was especially felt to be very dated, and the finger-clicking routines seemed over-choreographed and lacking spontaneity for today’s audiences.) However, others felt it held up extremely well and everyone agreed it remained one of the most brilliant scores in musical theatre. It ran for fifteen weeks at the Prince Edward and then transferred to the Prince of Wales for another year, closing January 8th 2000.

Commentaire: Once again this show had first seen light as a 1984 concept album LP.
Although the protagonists were not intended to represent any specific individuals, they were loosely based on chess grandmasters Bobby Fisher and Anatoly Karpov. The original director was Michael Bennett who had arranged for some very elaborate technical elements to be used, including creating a proscenium arch out of closed-circuit TV relays. He became seriously ill during rehearsals and was unable to continue, so the show was taken over by Trevor Nunn, who was forced to accept many of the scenic elements already created much against his will. Accordingly these screens were hardly used at all in the course of the show, to the confusion of the audience. Following its great success in London, the New York production opened in April 1988, with the book having undergone some re-writing and a few plot changes.
It was a flop, managing just over a month and some 68 performances. The London production ran three years.  (plus)
