Commentaires : Ever since this show was first performed (in 1925) it was known the original book, created by Guy Bolton and P.G.Wodehouse, had to be re-written at the last moment because the show involved a shipwreck scene and this would be too tasteless following a real-life shipwreck at that time. However, in the 1990s it was finally revealed this story was completely untrue. The original script had never included a shipwreck - it was simply too scrappy and poor to be used.
Commentaires longs: Bolton was a tax exile in London, and P.G.Wodehouse refused to leave France, so they created the work “long-distance” and posted it to Broadway. The producer, Arthur Freedley, was horrified with the result, but because they were very distinguished theatre writers, he did not want to damage his relationship with them. He called in Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse to create a new book, and in order to help Bolton and Wodehouse save face, the story was concocted that their original script had been abandoned because it involved a shipwreck (completely untrue!). Shortly before rehearsals started there had been the fatal sinking of the USS Morro Castle off the coast of New Jersey, providing the perfect excuse. Freedley announced that because the original writers were out of the country and time was too short, a new team had to take over and re-write the script. This totally false story only came to light after it had been accepted by three generations of theatre historians.

Commentaires : This had been a spectacular two month flop on Broadway in 1974, despite leading stars Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters, directed by Gower Champion. It had occasional touring and stock revivals in America but seemed unlikely to come to the West End. In 1984 the Olympic ice skaters Torvill and Dean used the overture as music for their gold-medal winning performance, and then the radio disc-jockey David Jacobs began promoting the album, claiming, quite rightly, it was one of the very best and most ignored of musical scores. Finally, 21 years after its Broadway premiere, a production was mounted at Leicester Haymarket and brought into the West End. The book had been revised to create a happy ending (in the original Mabel Normand died), and some new songs were added, but the book proved to be the problem. The songs were great, yet the show didn’t really hang together. It managed a seven month run during which Howard McGillan was replaced with James Smillie.
