Musical ()

Music: Mike Reid Book & Lyrics: Sarah Schlesinger

Résumé: Josephine Monaghan, the tearaway daughter of a Boston judge, abandons her illegitimate baby and starts a new life in California, where she is robbed and raped. She escapes by moving to Idaho, passing herself off as a man and living among the silver miners of the area. There are comic and sad consequences of this pretence: Jo falls in love with Jordan, who is pursuing Sara, and, in a “twelfth Night” type tangle, Sara then fancies Jo. The story also involves industrial problems when desperate Chinese labourers agree to work the mine for half-pay, and clash with an Irish group of miners who make a scapegoat out of their leader, Tien Mein Wong

Commentaires : Hugely praised as the “best new musical for years”, its music ranged from beautiful and lyrical ballads to true toe-tappers, and a rich score based on the ballads, hymns and drinking songs from the American folk tradition. Based on Maggie Greenwald’s 1993 film starring Suzy Amis, Bo Hopkins and Ian McKellen, this musical version was first staged in September 2000 at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater.
