Commentaires : Based on the 1967 film screenplay by Richard Morris, the musical opened on Broadway in April 2002 and ran for 904 performances, winning six Tony Awards. The Broadway production team re-created the show in London, with Maureen Lipman and Marti Webb alternating as Mrs Meers. When Marti Webb left for the “Tell Me on a Sunday” tour, she was replaced with Anita Dobson. During the run Amanda Holden was taken ill, and her understudy Donna Steele took over the role to great acclaim. In spite of mostly good reviews the show failed to catch on with the public, and the show closed in June 2004, after an eight month run.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Sweet musical."

PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "The new songs are generic to the point of anonymity. Holden's Millie is comparably bland."

MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Has the feeling of a factory product."

CHARLES SPENCER for THE TELEGRAPH says, "A second-rate production of a second-rate show."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, " The dancing is snappy."

ALASTAIR MACAULAY for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Feels synthetic, no sooner applauded than forgotten."
