Commentaires : 'Golden Boy' was the first proper full musical to ever play the London Palladium.
It only played a short season with Sammy Davis Jnr repeating his New York performance.
The show had many problems prior to opening, the main one being Mr Davis wanted his own musicians in the pit and the British MU fought it but gave in when Mr Davis made his way to the airport and back to the states!
It opened on June 4th 1968,attracted small audiences and closed after just 11 weeks, 118 performances, and the Palladium went back to presenting what it was famous for, big name variety stars!
