La production présentée au Prince of Wales Theatre de The Book of Mormon est prolongée jusqu'au 5 mars 2016.

The Prince of Wales is situated on the eastern angle of Oxenden Street, about halfway between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, adjacent to the more flowery Thistle Hotel, a seven-storey, late-19th-century Portland-stone block to its east. Almost opposite, on Coventry Street - named after King Charles II's Secretary of State, Henry Coventry - is the grand front of the former Trocadero Restaurant, along with a number of quite fine Edwardian façades. In Oxenden Street the architectural character changes with a varied run of smaller-scale buildings at its southern end, becoming large and bland on its western angle with Coventry Street.
The theatre Is the second on the site; the first opened on 18 January 1884 as the Prince’s Theatre, designed by C. J. Phipps for actor-manager Edgar Bruce as part of a larger, unified scheme embracing the Thistle Hotel (originally Prince's Hotel and Restaurant), and fronting on to Whitcomb Street. In accordance with the overall concept of a coherent group of buildings, the architecture of the Prince's Hotel was extended to embrace the theatre frontage to Coventry Street, curving into Oxenden Street in a simplified form. In 1886 the theatre’s name was changed to the Prince of Wales.
In 1937 the theatre's character changed, when the existing structure, considered old-fashioned, was demolished and a new one built, with a much more capacious auditorium. On 16 January the curtain came down on the final show, Encore les Dames, and on 17 June Gracie Fields laid the foundation stone of the new building, designed by the respected cinema architect Robert Cromie. The 1937 building, revealed to the theatre’s public on 27 October that year with the first performance of Les Folies de Paris et Londres, is far removed from Phipps's archetypal three-tier, cream and gold auditorium, with its Moorish style ancillary rooms and staircases. The steel-framed structure with its artificial stone cladding sits uneasily against the earlier hotel, with the sawn-through junction just a little too ill-mannered. The corner tower, with its long, curving, cantilevered canopy, echoes the original; the open corner drum should be outlined in neon, and it should also have a crowning flagstaff.
Internally, the building is vaguely archaeological: although it is much altered, parts of Cromie’s design can be identified in, for example, the cocktail bar and parts of the American Bar; the most complete survival is the stalls bar, which retains its dance floor and bar counter fashioned in backlit glass blocks. The foyer is relatively plain, with typical Art Deco reeded and recessed lighting channels. In 2003 theatre owners Delfont Mackintosh Theatres initiated an extensive refurbishment programme. The principle changes were to the auditorium and public circulation areas while enhancing the building's external image. The auditorium was partially reconfigured to reintroduce a sense of glamour and provide enhanced actor audience relationships. Externally the intent of Robert Cromie's 1937 design is reinvigorated through redefining his corner tower. Blue lighting accentuates the verticality of the corner, culminating in the new heightened rotunda and light feature.
A joy in this theatre is the many framed posters and photographs. Here are Sweet Charity, 1967, with Juliet Prowse; Harvey, 1975, starring James Stewart as well as the long-running musical Mamma Mia! (2004).

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).

27) Cliff - the musical (Original)   

Joué durant  1 mois 3 semaines

Première preview: mer. 12 mars 2003

Avec: Mike Read (Lord Cliff), Gordon Kenney (Bruce Welch), Ricky Aron (Cliff I), Miles Guerinni (Cliff 2), Jimmy Jemain (Cliff 3), Zillah Eagles, Sheri Copeland 

Commentaire: This was a bit of a jaw-droppingly pointless show - after all, there was no story - Sir Cliff had never trashed a hotel room, seduced an underage teenager, had a breakdown, or even got drunk - but it did have a superb band and an army of middle-aged matrons cheering every song. The critics were all happy to report that Sir Cliff himself was out of the country touring the Far East with his live show, and all expressed the hope this dreadful show would fold before he got back and would thus spare him the misery of having to watch it. It managed a 9 week run.  (plus)

Commentaire: This was the same production that had played the Prince of Wales exactly a year earlier, playing an 8 week limited run prior to a UK tour. Because of the early closure of “The Full Monty” the Prince of Wales was empty and at the same time the “Rent” tour was off the road because most provincial theatres were playing pantomime. It made sense for “Rent” to return for a 14 week season. There had been some cast changes over the past year.  (plus)

Première preview: mer. 27 février 2002

Commentaire: “The Full Monty” started life as a 1997 British film, directed by Peter Cattaneo. Set in Sheffield it was a non-musical comedy which managed to deal seriously with subjects like unemployment, father’s rights, depression, impotence, homosexuality, working-class culture and suicide. The musical version changed the setting to Buffalo, New York, but stayed very close to the film, changing some names and introducing a few new characters.
The musical opened on Broadway in October 2000 and ran for 769 performances. The London cast included six of the original Broadway cast members and received excellent notices. Dora Bryan was replaced after 12 weeks (due to “filming commitments”) by Lynda Baron, and after the agreed six months, the American leads were replaced with David Ganly (Dave), Cornell John (Noah), Ben Richards (Jerry), Paul Keating (Ethan), Samuel James (Malcolm) and Tony Timberlake (Harold). It ran for 9 months.  (plus)

Commentaire: Based on John Updike’s novel and the film version starring Jack Nicholson, the musical version initially earned mostly positive reviews, but failed to fill the vast Drury Lane auditorium. After seven months it was replaced with a scaled-down version and moved to the more intimate Prince of Wales Theatre. A number of scenes were re-written and the song “Who's the Man?1” was replaced with a rousing gospel number, “The Glory of Me”. At the same time Ian McShane left and was replaced by his understudy, Earl Carpenter. At the end of its first year a general cast change saw Clarke Peters take over as Darryl van Home and Josefina Gabrielle and Rebecca Thornhill replaced Lucie Arnaz and Maria Friedman. On Oct 27th, 2001 the show closed after a 15 month run. There had been a disastrous drop in ticket sales, attributed to a downturn in tourism following the September 11th Twin-Towers attack in New York.  (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: A straightforward compilation show of 39 numbers sung and danced by a cast of six black and three white performers, and a seven-piece band. There was no attempt to tell a story or create a plot – just two hours devoted to the music of Leiber & Stoller. A huge hit on Broadway, it was also highly praised when the all-American cast transferred to the West End, and managed a run of nearly two years. The highlight of the show was DeLee Lively in the number “Teach Me How to Shimmy”  (plus)

Commentaire: A lavish production wit loads of feathers, glitz and computerised effects, said to be filled with girls with pineapples on their heads and fruit around their genitalia - the critics praised the cast, but hated the show. The legions of Barry
Manilow fans kept it running for fifteen months, although the business fell away once Gary Wilmot left the cast (he was replaced by Darren Day towards the end of the first year).  (plus)

Commentaire: This production was re-created from the Australian production and came back into the West End as part of its UK tour.

Commentaire: The award-winning Broadway production opened in November 1989 and ran for 878 performances. This London version, in spite of winning several awards and being hailed by the critics, failed to catch on with the general public, who found the whole thing “too complicated”. It closed under eight months with losses estimated at £2.5 million.  (plus)

Commentaire: Originally the part of Uncle George Dillingham was to be played by Roger Moore. He asked to be released during rehearsals, frankly admitting that he was not able to sing well enough, and was replaced by the Australian, Kevin Colson. The show received a largely polite reception from the London critics, and thanks to its £2 million ticket sales advance ran for over 3 years. An arrangement was made with American Equity whereby the entire British cast were allowed to perform the show on Broadway (April 8th 1990) where it ran for 377 performances, in spite of receiving savage reviews like “an endless stream of clichés and predictable rythmns”. However, it lost several million dollars in the Broadway production. Amongst London cast replacements were Michael Praed, Clare Burt, Sarah Brightman , Barrie Ingham, Simon Masterman-Smith, Grania Renihan, Helen Hobson and David Malek.  (plus)
