Musical ()

Music: Mort Schuman Lyrics: Don Black Book: Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall Director: Jonathan Lynn Choreographer: Anthony Van Laast

Résumé: Ronald “Budgie” Bird is a petty crook and no-hoper always looking for easy money and dreaming of becoming a Soho king-pin. His world is one of gamblers, strippers, hawkers, barkers and villains. He is entrusted with the loot of a killer on the run. Having already spent £1000 of it before the murderer returns, Budgie makes up the difference by selling a stripper’s unwanted baby. He continually lets down his long-suffering girlfriend, Hazel (“Slag Number 2”) while trying to avoid his estranged wife (“Slag
Number 1”).

Commentaires : The attempts to turn these unsavoury characters into warm-hearted, loveable Soho folk, even included the winos sleeping in the gutters suddenly joining in a jolly knees-up type chorus. This was Adam Faith’s musical theatre debut, and a number of people asked “What’s a nice guy like you doing in a show like this?”
