Musical ()

Music: Noel Gay Lyrics: Various Book: Abi Grant Director: David Gilmore Choreographer: Anthony van Laast

Résumé: Sammy Shaw, star of the wartime radio show “Variety Bandwagon”, is anxious to persuade the Americans to come into the war. His show is broadcasting its first live link-up with the States but everything goes wrong thanks to air-raids - (“Bloody Nazis: first Poland, then France, now the ventriloquists”). Then the new producer, Heathcliffe Bultitude, starts censoring the script, and Sammy’s sweet-voiced sweetheart, Olive, seems to be enraptured by the visiting Hollywood star, Gary Strong. Jeeps, the sound effects man, seems to think banging coconut shells together is an appropriate introduction to Eddie Cantor. Sammy’s sidekick, Wilf, a good-hearted spiv, adds to the general chaos as the bombs begin to fall.

Commentaires : Following a try-out at Birmingham Rep, this show came into London on the skirts of the hugely successful “Me and My Girl”. With its total emphasis on nostalgia the older critics loved it, while the younger ones were mystified. It ran for three months.
