Commentaires : This was an updated version of the Dumas novel “La Dame aux Camélias” and was received very favourably by the critics, with special praise for Ruthie Henshall. However, it was a dark tale and failed to catch on with the public. Originally scheduled to run until the beginning of November, lack of business led to its early closing on September 13 th . Since then it has undergone major re-writing and the new version has been staged in Japan and in the Czech Republic
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Engaging production...The musical, both its book and music, did not greatly captivate me, but I was impressed by the way it raises serious moral questions. "
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It's a serious disappointment...There's no real tension in the writing, while the characterisation is flaccid in the extreme."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, " Decent, enjoyable but not exactly thrilling show."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Fluent, strikingly designed production...a compelling, if flawed, new work."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "If you can accept a musical with a less-than-sympathetic heroine, then there are things to savour...Fast-moving production."
