Commentaires : Originally staged as a try-out at Stratford East in April 2004, this was Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labours Lost” rewritten as a feel-good ska/reggae musical. A completely re-written version was staged at Stratford East for three weeks in February 2005 and, thanks to impresario Bill Kenwright, it transferred and was acclaimed as the first British black musical.
Presse : NICK CURTIS for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Cheery, agreeable but undemanding." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "One of the exhilarating things about The Big Life is that it is joyous while depicting - without either mitigation or rancour - the experience of first-generation Caribbean immigrants."
BRIAN LOGAN for THE GUARDIAN says, "Infectiously energetic and big-hearted."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, " A terrific show."
JEREMY KINGSTON says, "Energy and exuberance are what the show displays in abundance."
