Commentaires : The show initially received luke-warm reviews, but it attracted reasonable audiences. There were rumours of a number of backstage squabbles, and at the end of February Toyah Wilcox was brought in to replace Kelly Hunter. The show suddenly closed on Friday May 1st 1987 after a strike following the sacking of five out of the 13 orchestra members. The show had been blighted with a number of difficulties, including a serious breakdown in the orchestra’s relationship with Wayne Sleep, who accused them of interfering with his performance and alleged they were guilty of drunken and bawdy behaviour. The final performance (Friday May 1st 1987) was played with no musicians, and subsequent negotiations failed to resolve the problem. After the show ended a whole series on unpaid bills came to light, and 3 years later the main backer, William Hancock, was declared bankrupt with total debts of over £5 million.
