Commentaires : Based on Ossie Davies’s 1961 play “Purlie Victorious”, this opened on Broadway in March 1970, and after a quiet start became one of the big hits of the season. It ran for 688 performances and then went on tour before returning to New York for a brief run in 1972. (Gary Geld and Peter Udell would go on to further Broadway success in 1975 with “Shenandoah”.) This was its first production outside the USA, and although it would have been a trail-blazing piece at the time of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, it was now felt to be no more than a tuneful, jolly but very dated piece of Black History.
