Commentaires : This revival opened on Broadway in March 2009 and was almost universally acclaimed. It went on to win several awards including the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival. Within six months it had recouped its entire $5,760,000 investment, becoming one of the fastest-recouping musicals in Broadway history. After a year’s run, the original cast transferred to London and a mostly new tribe took over on Broadway. However, Broadway sales dropped with this cast change and the show closed on June 27, 2010 after 29 previews and 519 regular performances. (A touring version then ran for fourteen months through the USA returning to Broadway for ten weeks in the summer of 2011)
Most of the original cast transferred to London where the show received very enthusiastic reviews and a tremendous audience reaction. Under Equity rules the American performers were only allowed to play for six months, after which they would need to be replaced by English performers. Cameron Mackintosh decided against re-casting, and the show closed on September 4, 2010 after 12 previews and 165 regular performances.
