Commentaires : This production came into the West End following a UK tour, and received a very mixed reaction from the critics. It was accused of having a wobbly set, acting pitched at pantomime level, and very slow direction. On the other hand the choreography was praised for its energy and the cast for their enthusiasm. It ran for just over three months.
Presse : CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "The best one can say of the dancing is that the company perform with spirited energy. Unfortunately, Adrian Allsop's choreography, though virile and athletic, has none of the inventive wit of Michael Kidd's original routines, while the fight sequences are downright pathetic...woefully drab and unimaginative production" KIERON QUIRKE for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Devitalised revival...Dave Willetts' Adam and Shona Lindsay's Milly show teeth and sing well but there's zilch chemistry there." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "It’s good-natured, boasts the jaunty and pretty score that won an Oscar. At the Haymarket it offers plenty of energetic, athletic ballet...The acting...has an over-the-top swagger about it." ALISTAIR SMITH for THE STAGE says, "The acting is fine, the choreography energetic but the production values are really not up to the required standards." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "The show rarely rises above an honest competence. Dave Willetts as Adam looks suitably gruff and surly, but the character is an unlikeable stiff."
