Commentaires : With additional funding from Cameron Mackintosh this was a glorious full-scale production, and a sell-out for its National Theatre season, earning the desperately needed money following cuts in the arts grants. Reservations were expressed about whether the subsidised National Theatre should be producing such obviously commercial material, but everyone agreed it was of a standard unlikely to be bettered. Following its sell-out success at the Olivier it was re-staged for a five month run at the Lyceum.
Presse : MICHAEL COVENEY of THE DAILY MAIL says "A truly great evening."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE of THE TIMES says, "Has there ever been a higher standard of dance in any subsidised theatre? No."

CHARLES SPENCER of THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says "The National has a huge hit on its hands."

MICHAEL COVENEY of THE DAILY MAIL says "A truly great evening, easily the equal of Guys and Dolls and Carousel. Enjoy."

NICOLAS DE JONGH of THE EVENING STANDARD was more luke-warm saying " A rich feast of dream-pie, but not my kind of meal".
