Musical (1983)

Paroles: Ken Wydro • Vy Higginsen
Livret: Ken Wydro • Vy Higginsen

Type de série: Original London
Théâtre: Gielgud Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 1 mois 1 semaine

Première : mardi 13 juin 1995
Dernière : samedi 22 juillet 1995
Mise en scène : Vy Higginsen • Ken Wydro
Chorégraphie : Richard Sampson
Avec : Doris Troy (Mama Winter), Howard McCrary (Reverend Winter). Stacy Francis (Young Doris), Joanne Campbell (Narrator), Chaka Khan (Sister Carrie), Charles Stewart (Minister of Music)
Commentaires : This show held the record as the longest running all-black off-Broadway show, running for eight years, playing to over 3 million people and taking something like £38 million at the box office in stagings through Europe, Asia and Japan. The part of Doris Troy’s mother was played by Doris Troy herself, and the company included a 15 voice gospel choir. Generally the critics hated it! “Over-amplified, over-long, under-written, uninspired” (Sunday Express), “you end up aching for Motown and wishing the show had been about Diana Ross. Or even Jonathan Ross” (Michael Coveney in “The Observer”.)
Transfered from Cambridge Theatre
