Commentaires : This production was nominated for an impressive five Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 2014, including Best Musical and Best Original Score!
Presse : Les critiques sont très bonnes:

"The production’s relentless razzle-dazzle and its anything-for-a-laugh spirit also infuse the show with a winking suggestion: If you can’t be yourself, just be fabulous." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"The production’s best special effect isn’t the carpet, but the rollicking and endearingly over-the-top turn by James Monroe Iglehart ('Memphis'), who handles Robin Williams’ role as the genie. With nonstop joking, fist bumps, declarations of 'Oh snap!' and nimble dance moves and smooth vocals, Iglehart shines with enough charisma to light a thousand and one nights." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Disney’s new 'Aladdin' doesn’t quite catch lightning in a bottle — but it lets a pretty nifty genie out of a lamp." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"For a child who's never seen a show before, the bright colors and broad silliness might be fun, but their adults will likely find it a teeth-grinding experience (although many dads will be diverted by Princess Jasmine's plunging necklines)." Robert Feldberg for The Record

"This is a wonderful adaptation filled with color, charm and loads of theatrical magic." Roma Torre for NY1

"The magic carpet flies smoothly and so does the rest of 'Aladdin', a buoyant musical comedy fashioned from the 1992 Disney animated feature." Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"While it doesn't rival the imagination or innovation of 'The Lion King', the show's ebullient comic spirit should make it a popular hit." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Casey Nicholaw... stylistically turns the film’s romantic fairy-tale adventure into shtick comedy." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Dominic Maxwell for The Telegraph

"Amidst the orgy of bling-flashing and scimitar-waving, it's the moments of mischief that charm rather than the attempts at the heartfelt." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"Impressive stage magic, a gold-dripping design and a party-loving genie make this energetic adaptation of the animated movie a wicked treat." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Casey Nicholaw’s big-budget production is packed with busy numbers, but Trevor Dion Nicholas is the reason to come and see this glitzy show." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

Commentaires : Taking Broadway and the rest of the world by storm, when this outrageous musical comedy officially opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on March 24, 2011 (following previews from February 24), it wowed audiences and critics alike with the New York Times even hailing it as "the best musical of the century." The show went on to collect an astonishing nine Tony Awards, including “Best Musical” and has been one of the top-selling shows on the Great White Way ever since.
Presse : Les critiques sont excellentes:

"A newborn, old-fashioned, pleasure-giving musical has arrived." Ben Brantley for New York Times
"The show is blissfully original, irreverent, outspoken and hilarious. And all that's tucked inside good -- no, great -- old-fashioned musical." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News
"It’s a fiendishly well-crafted, hilariously smart — or maybe smartly hilarious — song-and-dance extravaganza. The show’s a hoot. The show’s a hit." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post
"Like several shows this season, “Book of Mormon” is too long and comes close to wearing out its welcome before redeeming itself with a strong second act. And like most 12-year-old-boys, it isn’t nearly as nasty as it would have us believe. Not that there’s anything wrong with that." Jeremy Gerald for Bloomberg
"Manages to combine outrageous parody, solid storytelling, and sympathetic yet goofy characters." David Sheward for Back Stage
"One of the most purely enjoyable musicals in years." Robert Feldberg for The Record
"Brilliantly original, hysterically funny and tunefully irresistible." Roma Torre for NY1
"In a season of tuners mostly derived from old movies, stories and songs, it’s a gold-plated Broadway miracle to encounter something so new and audaciously fresh in every respect of the word." Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey
"The defining quality of this hugely entertaining show is its sweetness... One of the freshest original musicals in recent memory. It has tuneful songs, clever lyrics, winning characters, explosive laughs and disarmingly intimate moments." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter
"Every song enhances the hilarity, expert staging heightens every gag, and the cast of fresh faces is blissfully good… Approaches musical-comedy Rapture" Steven Suskin for Variety

Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"While acknowledging that it is often damnably clever and sharp, I find it hard to warm to the show...The Book of Mormon strikes me as a decadent and self-indulgent musical, and its mixture of satire and syrup ultimately proves repellent." Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

"I absolutely loved it...songs, though not especially memorable, have bounce and bite and colour." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"I’m not sure its crude yet clever package is roll-in-the-aisles funny but it’s deliciously entertaining and there is certainly nothing like it in the West End." Julie Carpenter for The Daily Express

"Its satire is insistently US college-campus adolescent. I tired of it after ten minutes...This is a cowardly, coarse, cynical show, worth avoiding. Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

" Indecently funny...The music...is generally jaunty and from time to time soars operatically, though only three or four of the tunes are really memorable.
Henry Hitchings for Evening Standard

"A mildly amusing musical, with some knowingly parodic songs, that takes a few pot shots at religious credulity without ever questioning the need for belief. I had a perfectly pleasant time, but the idea that the show, which won nine Tony awards, is either daringly offensive or a Broadway breakthrough is pure codswallop...For all its rude words, this is essentially a safe, conservative show for middle America."
Michael BIllington for The Guardian

Commentaires longs: Un beau petit flop, même avec Elaine page dans le rôle titre, même avec des critiques plus que élogieuses de l'netièreté de la presse. Alors que le même spectacle avait receuilli un gros succès à Broadway…
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Surprises and delights." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, " For all the energy of Casey Nicholaw's production, I would readily sacrifice the whole of this glitzy charade for 10 minutes of the real thing by Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter or Jerome Kern." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Delightful show that has a strong claim to being one of the silliest musicals ever written...Only the self-importantly serious and the chronically depressed will fail to enjoy this preposterously entertaining evening." SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "Affectionate spoof...However clever and appealing it is, this musical is an airy confection without much substance." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "The piece fails to work on any level."

Presse : "Let me say up front that if I were asked to choose among the healthy lineup of girl-power musicals now exercising their lungs on Broadway, you would have to count me on Team Regina. That’s a reference to the alpha leader of the nasty title characters of Mean Girls, the likable but seriously over-padded new show." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Tina Fey’s new Broadway musical Mean Girls delivers a fizzy blast that tickles the ears, eyes and funny bone." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Mean Girls’s gospel of female self-actualization is borne out in the platform it provides for some of the most exciting young performers in musical theater. They bring a lot to the cafeteria table." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Director-choreographer Nicholaw infuses the production with his customary playful energy, and his dance moves have an almost awkwardly explosive quality that seems organic to the teenage characters. Even the splashy ensemble numbers, two of which make memorable use of cafeteria trays, suggest a nervous burst of hormonally charged adolescence that makes Mean Girls sing." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Tina Fey’s catty book and Nell Benjamin’s saucy lyrics pump laughs into this smart, funny, musical-comedy version of the 2004 movie." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Presse : "At the end of the first act, and then again after the last curtain call at the Longacre Theatre, my guest and I turned to each other and blurted out: "So much fun!" Short reviews have intrinsic value, and so I won’t be offended it you do not read on. Just go to The Prom. So much fun!" NY Theatre Guide

Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"'Sophomoric' is the right adjective for 'Something Rotten!,' and presumably its creators wouldn’t have it any other way." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"The supremely silly 'Something Rotten!' is the musical love child of 'The Carol Burnett Show' and 'Forbidden Broadway.' In other words, this showbiz offspring has some darn fine DNA." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"A deliriously entertaining new musical comedy that is devilishly clever under its goofy exterior... Yep, this is a blockbuster." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"'Something Rotten!' has established itself as Broadway’s funniest, splashiest, slap-happiest musical comedy in at least 400 years." David Cote for Time Out New York

"'Something Rotten!,' written by three guys making their Broadway debuts, is fresh and hysterical and irreverent. It's easily the funniest thing to arrive on Broadway since 'The Book of Mormon.'" Mark Kennedy for The Associated Press

"This is a big, brash meta-musical studiously fashioned in the mold of Monty Python's 'Spamalot,' 'The Producers,' and 'The Book of Mormon,' loaded with crowd-pleasing showstoppers, deliciously puerile gags and an infectious love of the form it so playfully skewers." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Although comic desperation descends on the second act, it’s still a deliriously funny show." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Presse : "A warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical that has nothing flashy or splashy about it." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Sweetly wholesome but hyperactive new Broadway musical." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"It’s pretty crazy that this story about regret, mortality and big life choices — make that 'eternal life or death' choices — could end up so toothless." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"I can admire several elements here; they just seem slightly misjudged or misaligned. For all Tuck’s thematic concerns with immortality, I doubt a long life awaits it in this competitive market for Broadway family fare." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The show that opened Tuesday at the Broadhurst Theatre is wonderfully crafted, a Nicholaw hallmark. Poignancy mixes well with humor, the songs are fresh and sweet, the set is blissful and the performances honest. It has a polished feel. All of the parts work smartly." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"Although the show... boasts solid production values and professionalism thanks to director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw and a cast filled with Broadway veterans, it's likely destined for an all-too-finite life on the Great White Way." Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

"The show’s warmhearted tale and handsome production values also bode well for a family-centric market, especially on the road. But more jaded theatergoers will likely find the proceedings not so much timeless as time-consuming — a production rooted in the twee of life." Frank Rizzo for Variety

"The defining quality of this hugely entertaining show is its sweetness... One of the freshest original musicals in recent memory. It has tuneful songs, clever lyrics, winning characters, explosive laughs and disarmingly intimate moments." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter
"Every song enhances the hilarity, expert staging heightens every gag, and the cast of fresh faces is blissfully good… Approaches musical-comedy Rapture" Steven Suskin for Variety

Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"While acknowledging that it is often damnably clever and sharp, I find it hard to warm to the show...The Book of Mormon strikes me as a decadent and self-indulgent musical, and its mixture of satire and syrup ultimately proves repellent." Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

"I absolutely loved it...songs, though not especially memorable, have bounce and bite and colour." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"I’m not sure its crude yet clever package is roll-in-the-aisles funny but it’s deliciously entertaining and there is certainly nothing like it in the West End." Julie Carpenter for The Daily Express

"Its satire is insistently US college-campus adolescent. I tired of it after ten minutes...This is a cowardly, coarse, cynical show, worth avoiding. Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

" Indecently funny...The music...is generally jaunty and from time to time soars operatically, though only three or four of the tunes are really memorable.
Henry Hitchings for Evening Standard

"A mildly amusing musical, with some knowingly parodic songs, that takes a few pot shots at religious credulity without ever questioning the need for belief. I had a perfectly pleasant time, but the idea that the show, which won nine Tony awards, is either daringly offensive or a Broadway breakthrough is pure codswallop...For all its rude words, this is essentially a safe, conservative show for middle America."
Michael BIllington for The Guardian

Commentaires longs: Un beau petit flop, même avec Elaine page dans le rôle titre, même avec des critiques plus que élogieuses de l'netièreté de la presse. Alors que le même spectacle avait receuilli un gros succès à Broadway…
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Surprises and delights." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, " For all the energy of Casey Nicholaw's production, I would readily sacrifice the whole of this glitzy charade for 10 minutes of the real thing by Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter or Jerome Kern." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Delightful show that has a strong claim to being one of the silliest musicals ever written...Only the self-importantly serious and the chronically depressed will fail to enjoy this preposterously entertaining evening." SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "Affectionate spoof...However clever and appealing it is, this musical is an airy confection without much substance." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "The piece fails to work on any level."

Presse : "Let me say up front that if I were asked to choose among the healthy lineup of girl-power musicals now exercising their lungs on Broadway, you would have to count me on Team Regina. That’s a reference to the alpha leader of the nasty title characters of Mean Girls, the likable but seriously over-padded new show." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Tina Fey’s new Broadway musical Mean Girls delivers a fizzy blast that tickles the ears, eyes and funny bone." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Mean Girls’s gospel of female self-actualization is borne out in the platform it provides for some of the most exciting young performers in musical theater. They bring a lot to the cafeteria table." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Director-choreographer Nicholaw infuses the production with his customary playful energy, and his dance moves have an almost awkwardly explosive quality that seems organic to the teenage characters. Even the splashy ensemble numbers, two of which make memorable use of cafeteria trays, suggest a nervous burst of hormonally charged adolescence that makes Mean Girls sing." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Tina Fey’s catty book and Nell Benjamin’s saucy lyrics pump laughs into this smart, funny, musical-comedy version of the 2004 movie." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"'Sophomoric' is the right adjective for 'Something Rotten!,' and presumably its creators wouldn’t have it any other way." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"The supremely silly 'Something Rotten!' is the musical love child of 'The Carol Burnett Show' and 'Forbidden Broadway.' In other words, this showbiz offspring has some darn fine DNA." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"A deliriously entertaining new musical comedy that is devilishly clever under its goofy exterior... Yep, this is a blockbuster." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"'Something Rotten!' has established itself as Broadway’s funniest, splashiest, slap-happiest musical comedy in at least 400 years." David Cote for Time Out New York

"'Something Rotten!,' written by three guys making their Broadway debuts, is fresh and hysterical and irreverent. It's easily the funniest thing to arrive on Broadway since 'The Book of Mormon.'" Mark Kennedy for The Associated Press

"This is a big, brash meta-musical studiously fashioned in the mold of Monty Python's 'Spamalot,' 'The Producers,' and 'The Book of Mormon,' loaded with crowd-pleasing showstoppers, deliciously puerile gags and an infectious love of the form it so playfully skewers." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Although comic desperation descends on the second act, it’s still a deliriously funny show." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaires longs: Two musical numbers were dropped from Act One while the production was still in Chicago.[citation needed] During the scene set in the "Witch Village", the torch song "Burn Her!" was originally performed by Sir Bedevere, The Witch, Sir Robin, Lance and Villagers. At the French Castle, "The Cow Song", in a parody of a stereotypical film noir/cabaret style, was performed by The Cow and French Citizens. Before the two songs were cut in Chicago, the lead vocals in both songs were sung by Sara Ramirez. This gave her six songs in Act One, but no further appearances until scene five in Act Two, for "The Diva's Lament".

Spamalot (2006-10-Palace Theatre-London)

Théâtre: Palace Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)

Durée : 2 ans 2 mois 2 semaines
Nombre : 928 représentations
Première Preview : Saturday 30 September 2006
Première : Monday 16 October 2006
Dernière : Saturday 03 January 2009
Mise en scène : Mike Nichols
Chorégraphie : Casey Nicholaw
Producteur :
Avec : Tim Curry (King Arthur), Christopher Sieber (Sir Galahad), Tim Goodman-Hill (Sir Lancelot), Hannah Waddingham (Lady of the Lake), John Cleese (The Voice of God), Darren Southworth, David Birrell, Robert Hands, Tony Timberlake
Commentaires : A stage version “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 Monty Python film, it opened on Broadway in March 2005 and received an astonishing 14 Tony Award nominations, winning three, including the Best Musical Award. It ran for 1,574 performances, and took over $175 million at the box office, closing January 11th 2009.
The London production opened in October 2006, with Tim Curry and Christopher Sieber repeating their Broadway roles. During the London run cast replacements included Simon Russell Beale, Peter Davison, Marin Mazzie and Sanjeev Bhaskar. The muchpraised Hannah Waddingham was replaced by Nina Soderquist , the winner of a Swedish TV “Search for a Star” competition. The London production closed on January 3rd 2009 a week earlier than the Broadway version.
Presse : PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Deliriously silly and loopily enjoyable evening." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Mike Nichols directs an exuberantly inventive production in which the jokes, both visual and verbal, just keep on coming, creating a conspiracy of pleasure that often feels like the best pantomime you’ve ever seen...It’s a wonderful night" NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "How sweet it also is to hear songs with silly lyrics that send up the style of instant moral uplift and dewyeyed yearning that characterise numbers from Rogers and Hammerstein to Andrew Lloyd Webber....Even describing the show as spoof, send-up, pantomime, musical comedy, satire and surreal farce does not altogether convey its weird, anarchic flavour. " MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "In short, the show has its moments; and Tim Hatley's sets and costumes carefully preserve the air of a low-tech medieval pantomime...There simply comes a point when I, for one, weary of old jokes and tongue-in-cheek send-ups of Arthurian ideals and musical cliches. Irony has its place but it's not quite enough to sustain a whole evening. With hand on heart, I'd much rather watch Lerner and Loewe's Camelot than Eric Idle's smart-arsed Spamalot." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Cheerfully mischievous...Silly? Very. Funny? You bet."

Presse : "A warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical that has nothing flashy or splashy about it." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Sweetly wholesome but hyperactive new Broadway musical." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"It’s pretty crazy that this story about regret, mortality and big life choices — make that 'eternal life or death' choices — could end up so toothless." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"I can admire several elements here; they just seem slightly misjudged or misaligned. For all Tuck’s thematic concerns with immortality, I doubt a long life awaits it in this competitive market for Broadway family fare." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The show that opened Tuesday at the Broadhurst Theatre is wonderfully crafted, a Nicholaw hallmark. Poignancy mixes well with humor, the songs are fresh and sweet, the set is blissful and the performances honest. It has a polished feel. All of the parts work smartly." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"Although the show... boasts solid production values and professionalism thanks to director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw and a cast filled with Broadway veterans, it's likely destined for an all-too-finite life on the Great White Way." Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

"The show’s warmhearted tale and handsome production values also bode well for a family-centric market, especially on the road. But more jaded theatergoers will likely find the proceedings not so much timeless as time-consuming — a production rooted in the twee of life." Frank Rizzo for Variety
