Commentaires : Based on the novel by Daniel Keyes. The musical was first produced in Canada in December 1978 before its London premiere. A much talked-of scene had Michael Crawford singing one number in a spotlight while a trained white mouse ran from one of his hands to the other, by way of Crawford's shoulders and neck. (This was a trick he would repeat 24 years later in a completely different musical, “The Woman in White”). Despite the enormous popularity of Michael Crawford, the show was disliked by critics and public alike, and came off after 29 performances. A Broadway production, re-named “Charlie and Algernon”, opened in September 1980 and ran for just 17 performances, though it did receive a Tony nomination for Best Score.
