Commentaires : Although the major revamp occurred on 2 August 1988. There had been a mini-revamp on the 16 May 1988, when Len Cariou resigned, and was replaced (at that afternoon’s matinee) as Ziegfeld by his understudy Marc Urquhart (until Topol took over the role on 2 August 1988). Meanwhile on the same day, director Joe Layton was replaced by Tommy Steele. In addition there were endless changes throughout the show’s infamous seven month run.

According to The Guinness Book Of Records, Ziegfeld’s losses of around £3 million are equal to those of King (a musical about Martin Luther King that ran for 6 weeks in London ending on 2 June 1990), and are the joint second greatest theatrical losses. First place for this record goes to Carrie produced in New York in May 1988, which lost around £4.2 million.
