Musical ()


Music: Keith Hermann Lyrics & Book: Barry Harman


Résumé: This is two separate one-act musicals. The first, “The Little Comedy” is set in 19th Century Vienna (based on a short story by Arthur Schnitzler). Josefine, a Viennese courtesan decides to sleep with someone she likes, rather than someone who pays her. She chooses Alfred, a poor young poet, who (surprise, surprise!) turns out to be a wealthy aristocrat who wants to be loved for himself and not his money. Two dancers dance and mime the fictions the lovers weave about themselves.

The second story, “Summer Share” is set in 29th Century Manhattan (based on a one-act play by Jules Renard). Sam (Husband A) and Monica (Wife B) stay up after their partners have gone to bed. They gossip, flirt, and drift toward making love, then he holds back at the last moment and she feels rejected.

Commentaires : This was a transfer (with mostly a new cast) of the much-praised fringe production at the Bridewell from the previous September. However, what had been delightful in the tiny Bridewell, now seemed “a balding musical on a low budget” in the West End. It ran for just over six weeks.

Commentaires : With both couples played by the same performers, this was much
praised as being reminiscent of Sondheim, elegant, intelligent and worthy
of transfer.
Il will be transfered (with mostly a new cast) to the Gielgud Theatre. However, what had been delightful in the tiny Bridewell, now seemed “a balding musical on a low budget” in the West End. It ran for just over six weeks.
