Version 1

A Little Night Music (2008-11-Chocolate Factory-London)

Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Menier Chocolate Factory (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 3 mois 2 semaines
Nombre :
Première Preview : Saturday 22 November 2008
Première : Saturday 22 November 2008
Dernière : Sunday 08 March 2009
Mise en scène : Trevor Nunn
Chorégraphie : Lynn Page
Producteur :
Avec : Hannah Waddingham (Desirée), Alexander Hanson (Frederik) , Maureen Lipman (Mme Armfeldt), Gabriel Vick (Henrik), Kaisa Hammarlund (Petra), Alistair Robins (Count Malcolm), Kelly Price (Charlotte), Jessie Buckley (Anne), Holly Hallam/Grace Link (Fredrika)
Commentaires : This critically acclaimed production earned special praise for the Lady Bracknell type performance from Maureen Lipman, but above all for Hannah Waddingham’s outstanding portrayal. The role of Desirée had earlier been played by older actresses with the consequent ageing of all the other characters around her. The original Desirée should have been no more than 40, with a 14 year old daughter – and this was ideal casting for Hannah Waddingham and added new depth to the story. Including previews, the London production gave some 226 performances.
(Transféré au Garrick Theatre)
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "On transfer to the West End, A Little Night Music leaves me far less than enraptured."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Delicious production...an evening of refined enchantment."
SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "While at its finest Nunn’s production has needle-sharp poignancy, the comedy that accompanies the pain is sometimes too broad...It’s not a rendering that never puts a foot wrong; but when it’s in step with Sondheim’s masterly music it’s sheer elegance."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "I found myself almost continually entranced...It's a fine production of a musical that only misses greatness by a whisker."

Including previews, the London production gave some 226 performances. This same production transferred to Broadway, officially opening on December 13 th 2009 with Angela Lansbury as Madame Armfeldt and, in her Broadway debut, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Desirée. (Catherine won the Tony Award for the Best Leading Actress in a Musical, and on the same weekend of the Tony Awards it was announced she had been awarded a CBE for her charity work.) The Broadway production closed temporarily on June 20, 2010 when the original contracts ran out, but reopened on July 13, with Bernadette Peters as Desirée and Elaine Stritch as Madame Armfeldt. When the production finally closed on January 9, 2011 it had played 425 performances (plus 20 previews).

Presse : PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Blanche is too tough and Kowalski too sensitive in this miscast 'Streetcar' " and goes on to say, "This Streetcar offers a less than enthralling three-hour ride." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "The greatness of Glenn Close's performance in Trevor Nunn's fine revival." SHERIDAN MORLEY for TELETEXT says, "[Glenn Close] Casting mistake....Misbegotten production." NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Glenn Close proves a weird if compelling choice for Blanche debois." He goes on to say, " Trevor Nunn's rather Operatic production is surprisingly off-key with its vitality." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "A less than desirable Streetcar....It's a poor production" BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Glenn Close... a performance that was incisive yet passionate, intelligent yet deeply moving." JACKIE FINLAY for BBC ONLINE says, "Nunn's production, and Close's performance...make a powerful impression." "JOHN PETER for THE SUNDAY TIMES says, "With a thrilling central performance from Glenn Close, the NT's production..is nothing short of irresistible."

Version 5

Acorn Antiques (2005-01-Haymarket Theatre-London)

Type de série: Original
Théâtre: Haymarket Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 3 mois 1 semaine
Nombre :
Première Preview : Thursday 27 January 2005
Première : Thursday 10 February 2005
Dernière : Saturday 21 May 2005
Mise en scène : Trevor Nunn
Chorégraphie : Stephen Mear
Producteur :
Avec : Victoria Wood (Monday evenings and Wednesday matinees only), Julie Walters (Mrs Overall) (Tuesday to Saturday evenings and Saturday matinees only), Celia Imrie (Miss Babs), Duncan Preston (Mr Clifford), Neil Morrisey (John), Josie Lawrence & Sally Ann Triplett (Mrs Berta)
Commentaires : A ten minute sketch inside a 30 minute TV comedy series had been expanded into a three hour musical. As a result, the first half and second halves were virtually two different shows. The whole thing was a muddle, but with its hugely talented cast, and its satire ranging from “Crossroads” to “Les Mis” and Starbucks to Sondheim, and with Victoria Wood and Julie Walters alternating in the lead role, it attracted an audience of fanatical supporters who roared with delight at every familiar gag and malfunctioning prop. In 2006 the show was completely re-written for a major UK tour, so that the entire show was now the “straight” musical performance of “Acorn Antiques”. Mrs Overall was played by Ria Jones and the tour received excellent notices and was felt to be much better for the changes. It is this revised version which is now regarded as the “real” show.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "A musical farce and a farsical musical...No Memorable numbers "
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "A load of slack, self-indulgent rubbish."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "I haven't laughed as helplessly since the day I heard Bernadette had closed at the Dominion. It's the supreme cheek of the endeavour that will irritate some people and exhilarate the rest of us."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Mischievous, good-natured, charming. But a comic masterpiece? Not really."

JOHN THAXTER of THE STAGE describes McKellen as playing his part "with frenzied intensity." NICHOLAS DE JONGH found the play enjoyable but was not pleased with Sir Ian McKellen's performance commenting that it was "perhaps the worst of his brilliant career." This I cannot agree with myself, as I found his performance superb and touching. JOHN PETER of THE SUNDAY TIMES agrees saying McKellen's performance was "one of the greatest in his career" and BILL HAGERTY of THE NEWS OF THE WORLD says he "contributes a masterly performance" and goes on to say "It's a play with razor-sharp teeth."

It had been announced that due to illness Denis Quilley would not be repeating his performance as Elisha Whitney when the show transferred to the West End.

The opening night was dedicated to his memory.

Producteur :
Avec : Michael Ball (Alex Dillingham), Ann Crumb (Rose Vibert), Kevin Colson {George Dillingham), Kathleen Rowe McAllen (Giulietta), Paul Bentley, Laurel Ford, David Greer
Commentaires : Originally the part of Uncle George Dillingham was to be played by Roger Moore. He asked to be released during rehearsals, frankly admitting that he was not able to sing well enough, and was replaced by the Australian, Kevin Colson. The show received a largely polite reception from the London critics, and thanks to its £2 million ticket sales advance ran for over 3 years. An arrangement was made with American Equity whereby the entire British cast were allowed to perform the show on Broadway (April 8th 1990) where it ran for 377 performances, in spite of receiving savage reviews like “an endless stream of clichés and predictable rythmns”. However, it lost several million dollars in the Broadway production. Amongst London cast replacements were Michael Praed, Clare Burt, Sarah Brightman , Barrie Ingham, Simon Masterman-Smith, Grania Renihan, Helen Hobson and David Malek.
Presse : "...a lyrical, heart-breakingly romantic chamber piece..... " Herald Tribune / "... a vibrantly intelligent and commanding performance by American Ann Crumb... A perfectly delightful performance from Diana Morrison... the daring shown here tonight deserves to win our admiration…" Daily Mail / " ...a remarkably daring piece of work…" Financial Times / " ....the musical texture becomes lively and varied and the stage starts to flood with real emotion... (Trevor Nunn) .... creates both images of rapturous gaiety ... and moments of desolating sadness... Mr Lloyd Webber shows a capacity to reach emotions that other composers do not touch." Guardian

Commentaires : Performed with a seven-piece band and projected scenery, this was presented as a chamber musical and for many critics, the show was vastly improved by being reduced in this way. The original run was advertised to September 26 th , but the show closed two weeks earlier than this. No explanation was offered.

Commentaires : The show was heavily re-written for London, but closed fairly quickly even
though many critics thought it the very best of Stephen Schwartz’s work.
Commentaires longs: After hearing the song "Meadowlark" countless times in auditions, director Trevor Nunn persuaded the authors to mount a London production. The Baker's Wife, starring Alun Armstrong and Sharon Lee-Hill, opened in the West End at the Phoenix Theatre on November 27, 1989 and closed on January 6, 1990, after 56 performances. This production, too, was ill-fated: though reviews were strong and audience reaction positive, the production was steadily losing money. According to Carol De Giere, "While reviewers offered praise, audiences were small and the show closed after only 56 performances. Schwartz explains,'The major thing that was wrong was that it was just too long'...Nunn comments 'Every performance there had a standing ovation, which is not at all normal in the English provinces."
Bowing to financial reality, the show closed prematurely, but received the Laurence Olivier Award nomination for Musical of the Year.

Presse : BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE, of THE TIMES says, "I don't think there is a line that does not express pain, regret, anger, alarm, desire, remorse or some blend of those emotions. Can you name a play that says so little and implies so much? No, I thought not." CHARLES SPENCER of THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says "An enthralling production of an indisputably great play." JOHN PETER of THE SUNDAY TIMES says "Pinter's haunting play, and this superlative production, are painful because you know that there is no clear or easy answer. Great writing does not betray." However, ALAISTER MACAULAY of THE FINANCIAL TIMES was a little disappointed saying "The chemistry between the three characters does not ring true here, because the three actors appear to inhabit markedly different social circles." PAUL TAYLOR of THE INDEPENDENT is not too impressed either describing the play as a " Mildly disappointing production." JANE EDWARDES of THE TIMES describes the play as a "Hit and miss production."

Commentaires : Based on Josef von Sternberg’s famous film with Marlene Dietrich, this began at the RSC’s studio at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1991 and was then brought to London. By coincidence Marlene Dietrich herself had died just prior to the opening night. Despite some excellent central performances, it was generally felt that this “studio” show did not really work now that it had transferred to a full-size theatre.

Commentaires : Based on T.S.Eliot’s children’s book “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats”. Originally Judi Dench was cast as Grizabella but she suffered a leg injury during rehearsals and was forced to leave the show. The lyrics for fragments of T.S.Eliot’s verse, and the song became one of the greatest hits of the 20th Century, with over 600 different recordings. In January 1996 “Cats” became the
longest running UK musical up to that time, overtaking “Chorus Line”, when it achieved its 6,138th performance. On June 19th 1997 it became the longest running show to date in New York.
It played a total of 8,949 performances in London. Its final performance was on its 21 st birthday, 11 May 2002, and broadcast on a large screen in Covent Garden to the delight of fans who could not acquire a ticket for the final performance. It held the record as London's longest running musical until 8 October 2006, when it was surpassed by “Les Miserables”.

Presse : "Has the show dated since 1981? Aside from some tinny electronic sounds, not really. Is that because it's timeless? I don’t think so. Cats is actually a classy species of panto - fluffy, shiny, just about perfect for this time of year." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph

"The anthropomorphised felines, in their spandex leotards and furry leg warmers, still prowl the aisles and glare in the eyes of the punters but the show, with its trademark junkyard set by John Napier, feels less like a prototype immersive experience and more like a weird through-sung-and-danced revue ..." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"It is all performed with great commitment, the dancing is excellent and Nunn’s direction gives a diffuse show a carnivalesque unity. But, while Cats is enjoyable in itself, I’m not convinced it led musicals in the right direction." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"While Cats can’t mask the degree to which it’s rooted in the Eighties, it is a genuinely opulent ensemble piece with a surprising undercurrent of surrealism." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"In X Factor jargon, Miss Scherzinger nailed it, her low voice almost gasping with emotion, harmonising briefly with another singer before seizing back her solo and clinching it with lusty, self-discovering power. Meow meow meow!!" Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

Commentaires : One of Broadway's previously longest running and most popular musicals makes a special return to New York at the Neil Simon Theatre.
Presse : "The overriding spirit of the revival appears to be the familiar motto: Don’t mess with success... This 'Cats' is fundamentally the 'Cats' you knew and loved when you were first bit by the musical-theater bug. Or it’s the “Cats” you knew and snickered at when you first encountered it." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"Watching the lively yet enervating revival staged by Trevor Nunn, who directed the original 34 years ago, you can’t help but wonder how its first run lasted 18 years. Plotless, repetitive, nonsensical, the ’80s relic quickly turns tiresome enough to make you wish for a catnap. So much energy spent, so little impact." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"This was a lost opportunity. Rather than lamely re-creating the original (with some punchier added choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler), why not orchestrate the score for acoustic instruments, redo the costumes and dances, and find fresh drama underneath the tacky, dated pageantry? Instead we get a taxidermied pet. If there is heart to the piece, it’s Grizabella, the faded, outcast 'glamour cat.' British crooner Leona Lewis has a big, yearning voice, but even her (heavily amplified) yowling of 'Memory' can’t make the past worth revisiting." David Cote for Time Out New York

"The theatrical evolutions since 1982 make 'Cats' seem quaint and unsubstantial. It's really not a cohesive show, more a revue with a collection of bombastic rock songs connected by mangy fur." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"Although it remains to be seen whether this revival will live up to the original production's tagline of "Now and Forever," enough time has passed for a new generation of theatergoers to embrace the show, while those who saw the original (and liked it) will probably want to return for a blast of nostalgia. And with the dramatic upturn in tourists to the Big Apple in recent years, there's no reason to think that this Cats won't be purring on Broadway for a very long time." Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

"As it was in the early days of this enduring musical, and still is, the genius of the show is in the dancing. At this early stage of the game, before the inevitable injuries and burnouts, the dancers are in perfectly splendid form. Quentin Earl Darrington has great authority as Old Deuteronomy, while Daniel Gaymon’s athletic Macavity, Andy Huntington Jones’ regal Munkustrap, and all the other members of the Jellicle tribe are flying high — now and forever." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaires : Once again this show had first seen light as a 1984 concept album LP.
Although the protagonists were not intended to represent any specific individuals, they were loosely based on chess grandmasters Bobby Fisher and Anatoly Karpov. The original director was Michael Bennett who had arranged for some very elaborate technical elements to be used, including creating a proscenium arch out of closed-circuit TV relays. He became seriously ill during rehearsals and was unable to continue, so the show was taken over by Trevor Nunn, who was forced to accept many of the scenic elements already created much against his will. Accordingly these screens were hardly used at all in the course of the show, to the confusion of the audience. Following its great success in London, the New York production opened in April 1988, with the book having undergone some re-writing and a few plot changes.
It was a flop, managing just over a month and some 68 performances. The London production ran three years.
Commentaires longs: Originally supposed to begin previews on April 30, but technical difficulties forced them to postpone.

Commentaires longs: Like musical theater, chess is an unpredictable game. There was no reason to suspect that London’s success could not be replicated in New York. Chess lasted for 3 years in London, but the New York production closed in less than 2 months.
The original story was thought to be too convoluted, and it seemed to put the Americans in a bad light. Richard Nelson was hired to revamp the entire story. Unfortunately he diluted the parts that might have caused discomfort among the American audience. He took away some of the lighter touches from the original story, and made it depressingly serious. And he added one character and one subplot too many.
The show opens in Bangkok, and moves to Budapest for the second act. Instead of having two tournaments, the American version is confined to just one tournament. A new character, Walter, who is Freddie’s business associate, is added. Freddie’s second, Florence, now has a long lost father whom she is asked to help defect to the West. However, in exchange for this favor, the KGB asks her to persuade her new-found lover and defector, Anatoly, to return to Russia.
It was probably not any one single factor that was responsible for Chess’s American demise. Some blamed Richard Nelson’s book. Others blamed the poisonous reviews by several influential theater critics, like New York Times' Frank Rich.

Commentaires : Based on the 1936 novel by Margaret Mitchell and the subsequent film–script, the epic “Gone with the Wind” had become one of the most popular and best-remembered stories of the 20th Century. Drawing on his experience with “Nicholas Nickleby” in 1980, Trevor Nunn used the same technique to cram the 1000 page novel into three and a half hours onstage: relying heavily on multiple narrators who rattle through the plot by interspersing dialogue with large chunks of narration straight from the novel. Accordingly, the songs seem constantly to interrupt the proceedings rather than deepening or adding to the story. The production included some tentative efforts at political correctness by supplying the slaves with some attractive gospel songs and spirituals and by turning Prissy (the lazy and stupid slave-girl from the film version) into a sanitised, witty would-be teacher. However, the film’s splendid epic quality is sorely missed - the much-remembered burning of Atlanta sequence is represented by some orange lights and the burning of a Confederate flag – and with 36 actors playing over 90 parts the show often becomes a blur of activity, some of it blundering and clumsy, and some of it moving so quickly that the audience could not keep up with the plot. There was praise for the performers and the design, but, all in all, it was felt to be a self-indulgent, prolonged vanity exercise for the composer and the director, and a painfully drawn out and tedious exercise for the audience. Although initially bookings were accepted up to the end of September, the show was finally withdrawn on June 14 th after 79 performances.
Commentaires longs: Une version musicale "honnête" de 'Gone with the wind'. Les critiques ont été catatstrophiques et le spectacle a été plombé dès le début… Sans doute, de manière totalement exagérée. Le spectacle est long, il est vrai. Et alors? Les artistes sont de qualité, la mise en scène simple mais efficace. On a vu nettement pire ailleurs sans que cela déclenche une levée de bouclier pareille.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Is a small, well-placed tornado in the vicinity of the theatre too much to hope for?...I found it a cruel, unusual punishment."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "The show is neither as bad as one feared nor as good as one has a right to expect."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "The problem is structural: how do you cram a 1,000-page novel into three-and-a-half hours of stage time? The answer is "with great difficulty...there is something extravagantly pointless about the whole enterprise."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Soullessly efficient show merely feels like one damn thing after another, an endless parade of unexciting incidents that leaves the viewer feeling neither shaken nor stirred."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, " It just doesn’t have the variety, the quirkiness or the moral power. And it doesn’t need the tunes."

SUSANNAH CLAPP for the OBSERVER says, " Redgrave's performance in De Profundis .....is impressive, though his Irish cadences see-saw repetitively." JOHN THAXTER for THE STAGE says, "The Play ( In Extremis) sits heavily on Redgrave's shoulders, but Sheila Hancock...gives a many-layered portrayal of a woman teasingly recalling this encounter from beyond the grave." MADELEINE NORTH for TIME OUT says, "This is an imaginative pairing, offering an intimacy with Wilde only a dramatisation of this kind could achieve."

"Though it is the effervescent wit of Cole Porter’s songs, with their insolently ingenious double and triple rhymes and unforgettable melodies, that are the star attraction, Sam and Bella Spewack’s book crackles with comic energy and great one-liners, while also finding moments of tenderness and hurt amid the dizzy joie-de-vire...Frankly, nights at the theatre don’t often come more enjoyable than this."

Presse : RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Tame play ...lacks the energy to fill the vast Olivier stage." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says "Nunn's last labour ends with a bang." He goes on to say, " [Joseph] Fiennes is excellent: debonair, sophisticated, but wiser, deeper than any Berowne I’ve seen." NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Nunn's labour wins". CHARLES SPENCER for DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Ravishing production." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "There is much to enjoy. But what the production cries out for is severe editing so that the verbal fencing is swifter and sharper."

Commentaires : After 19 years at the Palace Theatre the production was moved to the smaller Queen’s Theatre (the Palace needed considerable renovation to meet safety standards). In order to fit into the new space the scenery was reduced in size and the physical production needed shrinking. The most controversial aspect of the move was the size of the orchestra. The Palace pit accommodated 21 musicians, but the Queen’s could only hold 11. The rest of the sound was provided by a computer. The Musicians Union threatened a strike, but capitulated when Cameron Mackintosh claimed the only alternative was to close the show. The critics generally agreed that the “reduced” version had suffered no loss of richness or texture, and the new orchestral sound was perfectly satisfactory thanks to the new-fangled “Sinfonia” computer. Having now been seen by more than 50 million people in 38 countries and 21 languages, “Les Mis” had now become the most successful musical of all time.
Commentaires longs: Cette version a été créé au Barbican théâtre le 8 octobre 1985, avant dêtre transféré au Palace Theatre le 4 décembre où il a été joué jusqu'au 27 mars 2004… Le spectacle a alors encore changé de maison pour émigrer 500 mètres plus lon au Queen's theatre où il a ouvert le 3 avril 2004, lieu où il se joue toujours, devenant le musical le plus joué de l'histoire!

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH of THE EVENING STANDARD says, director Trevor Nunn's production "goes in for Florid declamation which strikes me as oddly old fashioned, and not to this odd play's advantage." KATE STRATTON of TIME OUT says "McGuinness provides elegant mirror images of English assurance and Irish diffidence and a web of thought provoking ideas about artistic responsibility." ANDREW ALDRIDGE of THE STAGE found the play dull; saying the set design "leaves a stronger impression than what happens on it". BILL HAGERTY of THE NEWS OF THE WORLD said all the cast try hard "but the evening remains wet". JOHN PETER of THE SUNDAY TIMES says, "Trevor Nunn's direction performs near-miracles with a text that is eventful but essentially static."

Commentaires : This hugely-praised revival won four Olivier Awards, including Best Musical, and awards for Martine McCutcheon and Matthew Bourne. From the outset Martine McCutcheon was plagued with throat problems, and very frequently missed performances, being replaced (to much acclaim!) by her understudy, Alexandra Jay. By December, with five months left on her contract, it was clear that Martine McCutcheon could not continue, and she was replaced with Joanna Riding (who went on to win a further Olivier Award for the show as Best Actress in a Musical in 2003). The show ran two years at Drury Lane, finishing at the end of August, 2003. (It was revived for a 12 city UK tour in September 2005, ending in August 2006. This tour starred Amy Nuttall and Lisa O’Hare as Eliza, Christopher Cazenove as Henry Higgins, Russ Abbot and Gareth Hale as Doolittle, and Honor Blackman and Hannah Gordon as Mrs Higgins.)
Commentaires longs: Reprise de la version My Fair Lady (2001-03-Lyttelton Theatre (NT)-London)
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD describes Martine McCutcheon's performance as 'marvellous" and describes the show as "fairly magical".

SHERIDAN MORLEY for TELETEXT says the show is "sharp and sturdy".He goes on to say, "Matthew Bourne's choreography is brilliant.."

MICHAEL COVENEY for THE DAILY MAIL, describes McCutcheon's performance as "bubbly, bright and immensely endearing". He goes on to say, "In Jonathan Pryce's Higgins we have a major performance by a major actor." He finishes with describing the show as "Wonderfully theatrical."

CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Pryce combines commanding authority with charm and delivers the songs with far more panache than Rex Harrison." He goes on to say, "The night belongs to McCutcheon."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "A success to rival the National's Oklahoma!."

MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "The first half of the evening is shamelessly enjoyable. But after the interval, doubts crowd in about the show and the production."

ROBERT GORE-LANGTON for THE DAILY EXPRESS says, "It's effortlessly enjoyable."

RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Trevor Nunn's show crackles like a house on fire."

Commentaires longs: Trevor Nunn tackled the work in an acclaimed 1986 production at England's Glyndebourne Festival. The 1986 Trevor Nunn production was scenically expanded and videotaped for television in 1993 (see below in "Film and television"). These productions were also based on the "complete score," without incorporating Gershwin's revisions. A semi-staged version of this production was performed at the Proms in 1998.

Commentaires : Notes: Trevor Nunn had directed the opera “Porgy and Bess” at Glyndebourne in 1986, and that production, conducted by Simon Rattle, was re-created as a television opera in 1993, and re-staged for a one-night concert version at the 1998 Royal Albert Hall Promenade Season. This, however, was produced as a “musical” not an opera. Working with the Gershwin estate, Nunn used dialogue from the original novel and subsequent Broadway stage play to replace the recitatives with naturalistic scenes. He also considerably reduced its running time. He did not cast operatic voices but relied on musical theatre actors as leads. Gareth Valentine re-scored the work for a 20-strong orchestra (as opposed to the 50 piece symphony orchestra of the Glyndebourne version).
In spite of generally welcoming reviews the show did not attract an audience, and closed after just a few months.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, " Ardent production." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, " 'Electrifying' is an overworked word in the critical lexicon, but if ever a show deserved it, it is Trevor Nunn's magnificent revival of the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess." SCOTT MATTHEWMAN for THE STAGE says, "A visual and aural spectacle." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "If the show now seems a museum-piece, Nunn's production invests it with social detail...this is an essentially conservative show." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Nunn’s company brings enormous energy and plenty of class to Ira Gershwin’s libretto."

"While there's much pleasure to be had from the stylish acting and direction, Coward's play remains a musty, tribal relic in praise of the class system." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"It’s impossible not to be amused by Hodge’s silkily imperious tone as she tries to ensure the upper classes remain unsullied by such an arriviste." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard

Commentaires : This major revival at the National Theatre interpolated two songs that had been cut from the original production: “My Girl Back Home” and “The Time is Now”. It was staged with some grainy newsreel projections, and there was an attempt at “gritty realism” by ensuring the crew of GIs were tubby, sweaty and a long way from the usual dancing chorus boys. There was the usual criticism that taxpayers’ money should not be used to subsidise commercial musicals at the National Theatre, but it was generally agreed this was an excellent production of a now slightly dated show.
Presse : BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, “South Pacific at the National is almost an enchanted evening.”

CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “The show may not be in the same league as the National's earlier musical hits, but at its best, as the song says, it offers some enchanted evening.”

MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, “Decently dull production.” He goes on to say, “An evening that dutifully delivers a musical classic but only briefly acquires a touch of ecstasy.”

RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, “A fabulous cast includes Lauren Kennedy as a wonderfully brassy-tender Nellie, Edward Baker-Duly as the clean-cut, anguished Lieutenant, Nick Holder as a flabby, fast-talking small-time Sergeant Bilko, and the fine John Shrapnel as the humane but comically exasperated Commander of the island.”

NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, “Glamour-laden, beautifully drilled production.”

MICHAEL COVENEY for THE DAILY MAIL said, “Nunn's revival, magically designed by John Napier with exquisite lighting by David Hersey, is every bit as good as the RNT's previous Rodgers and Hammersteins, Carousel and Oklahoma!”

SHERIDAN MORLEY for TELETEXT says the production is , "fatally unsexy" and "underpowered". He goes on to say, "It is also bloodless, overlong and lacks any narrative drive."

Commentaires : The performers were required to race around the theatre on roller-skates. They underwent several months of skating training to be able to take part and the theatre itself had to undergo major alterations to accommodate racing tracks running through the auditorium, up to the circle, then back down through the stalls. The show went on to become one of the major hits of all time, with world-wide productions.

Commentaires : The West End production, directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Arlene Phillips opened on 27 March 1984 at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it ran for 7,406 performances, closing on 12 January 2002. Original cast members included Stephanie Lawrence, Frances Ruffelle, Jeff Shankley, Jeffrey Daniel and Ray Shell.Starlight Express had one of the most spectacular stage sets ever created. As well as the steeply-banked central arena, there were swooping race tracks that extended into and around the theatre's auditorium. One of the set's most dramatic elements was the six-tonne steel bridge. During the show's high-speed races, the bridge lifted and tilted to connect the various levels of the set. This means the actors started racing on a track in the stalls and end up in the dress circle.

Commentaires longs: This version featured extensive revisions to the plot and the addition and omission of several musical numbers. "C.B." at this point lost his name and was henceforth known only as "Red Caboose," and rather than racing simply for the accolade "Champion Engine of the World", the trains raced for a prize, the "Silver Dollar".

The race structure changed from three heats with one winner each in the final, to two heats with two winners each in the final. Rusty didn't race in the heats at all, making Belle (Memphis Belle, as she was re-named) redundant. This made the show considerably shorter and less complex, as there was now one race fewer and no debate over whether or not Rusty should be allowed to race in the final. It also lead to Belle being entirely cut from the show in later productions, as she served no useful purpose. The engines now raced for a prize, the Silver Dollar, rather than just for the sake of winning.

The "Entry of National Engines" was moved to the beginning of the show, in the place of the overture. The song "Engine of Love" was used when Rusty brought the Coaches in near the beginning of the show. Pearl then went off with him before "A Lotta Locomotion", so that it was sung only by Dinah, Buffy and Ashley. "He Whistled at Me" was replaced with the more sedate ballad "Make Up My Heart." "AC/DC" no longer came to a conclusion, but was interrupted by Greaseball with "Pumping Iron", now a direct challenge to the newcomer. Because Electra had already entered with his entourage, the second and third class Sleepers no longer existed. Joule, Volta and Wrench now joined "Pumping Iron" in their places. "There's Me" became a duet between Caboose and Dinah.

"The Rap" was completely re-written as the original, mainly concerning Rusty's predicament, was irrelevant. For the "Downhill Final", Rusty appeared in a new costume as the Starlight Express. None of the other characters recognised him. After the race, Caboose stole the Silver Dollar. The company accuse Rusty of having stolen it, and he consents to being searched if the opposition have to do likewise. This led to a lengthy slapstick chase ("The Chase"), at the conclusion of which was Caboose crashing into Greaseball and Electra. "No Comeback" was cut. The disguised Rusty idea was scrapped during the Broadway run and reverted back to Rusty entering the Final as himself, and "The Chase" being cut completely. Greaseball, Caboose, & Electra then sang "One Rock 'n' Roll Too Many", rearranged with choreography that was more slapstick and less sexual innuendo laden. Pearl sang a brief reprise of "Make Up My Heart" ('It's thanks to you that things worked out all right. I knew it from the start. Now I know I've made up my heart.'), however it was cut early in the preview period. "Only He" was replaced with an expanded "Only You", and the show ended with "Light at the end of the Tunnel."

Commentaires : The Starlighthalle was built especially for the production in an extraordinary time of less than one year. Both the special building and record breaking build time were documented in the Guinness Book of Records. The Starlighthalle was specially designed for the show, with large tracks on two levels in a U-like shape with the audience sitting in the middle and around these tracks. On stage the tracks even run over three levels which allows several race combinations. In 2003 a 'Y' shaped track was added to the smallest inner track, the Parkett, dividing it into 3 seating areas and allowing greater flexibility of staging and more tricks for the skaters. A good impression of the Starlighthalle can be seen on the official website from a 360° panorama view and lots of high resolution pictures from the show, featuring the current cast.

Commentaires : In November 1992, the London production, christened The New Starlight Express, was re-launched with heavy revisions to the material, partly influenced by the subsequent productions described below. Five songs ("Crazy", "He'll Whistle at Me", "Make Up My Heart", "Next Time You Fall in Love", "The Megamix") were added, 12 songs (the Overture, "Engine of Love", "Call Me Rusty", "Hitching and Switching", "There's Me", "Belle The Sleeping Car", "Heat Three", "Wide Smile", "High Style", "No Comeback", "Only He", "Only You") and two characters ("C.B." and "Belle") were cut.

Belle, having proved incompatible with the shorter 4-race system on Broadway, was cut along with C.B. Cutting C.B. required a near complete overhaul of the plot (though the lighting design didn't change – his spotlight still came up in "Freight" right up to the last performance of the show), as without a clear cut villain, Rusty, Electra and Greaseball had to cause their own problems or be the victims of circumstance to move the story along.

The "Overture" was scrapped, with the "Entry of National Trains" moved to the opening of the show from its former place following "Freight". The energetic, high speed "He Whistled at Me" was reworked into "He'll Whistle at Me" and moved to earlier on in the show. In its original place was the languid ballad "Make Up My Heart" that was first recorded on a 1987 studio recording. "Pumping Iron" was moved to immediately after "AC/DC", shifting the intention from merely boasting to a direct challenge from Greaseball to the newcomer and cutting off the end of the preceding song. This meant that the 2nd and 3rd class Sleepers were no longer seen, as the performers who had filled those roles were now on-stage as the female Components. Rather than winning a heat each, as in the 5-race structure, Greaseball and Electra come first and second in the first heat, securing places in the final for each of them. Rusty now didn't race at all until the final, only reluctantly taking Poppa's place after the title song. Poppa won the second heat with Bobo coming second.

"The Rap" was completely re-written, as the debate – whether or not Rusty should be allowed to race in Poppa's place when he'd already been disqualified – was completely redundant. It became an anthem to how great racing is, rather than an argument. Pearl still switched engines to Electra, leaving Dinah uncoupled. With Belle gone, Ashley and Buffy carried "Rolling Stock (Reprise)" by themselves, allowing them each more vocals. After the Uphill Final, when Dinah uncouples Electra, with no C.B. he partners Buffy instead for the Downhill Final. Rather than being crashed intentionally, Electra and Greaseball crash accidentally at the end of the race. Electra then took C.B.'s place in "One Rock 'n' Roll Too Many", and also took one of Greaseball's spoken lines("You mean I could be converted to steam?" became "D'you think I could be converted to steam?") afterwards to be included in the scene. As a second finale, "The Megamix" was added. It consists of a few phrases from most of the songs in the show, including one that by the end was no longer there – "He'll Whistle at Me" was cut in 1996, but remained represented.

Commentaires : A londres, Norma Desmond sera jouée successivement par Patti LuPone, Betty Buckley, Elaine Paige, Petula Clark et Rita Moreno.
Les critiques ayant été mitigée à l'ouverture, le show va fermer trois semaines et rouvrir le 19 avril 1994 avec de nombreuses modifications rapprochant cette version de celle de Los Angeles (Glenn Close) qui avait elle été très bien accueillie.

Early in 1997, Andrew Lloyd Webber announced the immediate closure of both the West End and Broadway productions, claiming it was impossible to find cast replacements of sufficiently high quality. (Later it was disclosed the whole undertaking had lost an absolute fortune and was seriously impacting on the overall finances of Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Company. The sum of money paid to Faye Dunaway for breach of contract when she was sacked from the USA version was never disclosed, but it was claimed that Patti LuPone, initially promised the Broadway run, sued Lloyd Webber and received a settlement reported to be $1 million.
According to Broadway critic Frank Rich in his book “The Hot Seat”, these lawsuits contributed to “Sunset Boulevard” setting the record for the biggest loss ever made on a musical show. The operating costs exceeded the income, and the touring companies also generated large financial losses. In spite of running for more than two years and selling over a million tickets on Broadway, Rich puts the final losses near or above $20 million.

Avec : Patti LuPone (Norma Desmond), Kevin Anderson (Joe Gillis), Meredith Braun (Betty Schaefer), Daniel Benzali (Norma's ex-husband, Max)
Commentaires : Billy Wilder and his wife Audrey were joined by Nancy Olson, who had played Betty Schaefer in the original film, at the opening night performance. Of it, Wilder observed, "The best thing they did was leave the script alone," and of Patti LuPone he exclaimed, "She's a star from the moment she walks on stage."
Reviews were mixed…
The show closed for three weeks, re-opening on 19 April 1994, revamped to follow the Los Angeles production, with a second official "opening".
Presse : the review by Michael Kuchwara for the AP: "Some reviewers felt Lloyd Webber took the sting out of a cynical tale. 'Wilder's bitter brew has been diluted,' wrote AP Drama Critic Michael Kuchwara. He added: 'When LuPone is off stage, the show sags.'"
Frank Rich wrote "Much of the film's plot, dialogue and horror-movie mood are preserved, not to mention clips used to illustrate those sequences in which the faded silent-film star, Norma Desmond ...and her kept young screenwriter, Joe Gillis ..., travel by car. The lyricist, Don Black ..., and the playwright, Christopher Hampton ..., smartly tailor their jokes to the original screenplay's style. At times even Lloyd Webber gets into the Wilder swing. Both acts open with joltingly angry diatribes about Hollywood, part exposition-packed recitative and part song, in which the surprisingly dark, jazz-accented music, the most interesting I've yet encountered from this composer, meshes perfectly with the cynical lyrics. Anderson makes the sardonic Wilder voice an almost physical presence in Sunset Boulevard. But that voice is too often drowned out by both LuPone's Broadway belt and by the mechanical efforts of Lloyd Webber and his director, Trevor Nunn, to stamp the proven formulas of Phantom and Les Miz on even an intimate tale. At odd moments the mammoth set advances like a glacier toward the audience or retreats or, most dramatically, rises partly up into the flies, actors in tow."

Commentaires : Buckley then followed Glenn Close as Norma Desmond in the second year of the Broadway production. Elaine Paige, who had filled in when Buckley was ill in 1994, took over as Norma Desmond in the West End in May 1995 before joining the Broadway production for the end of its run between 1996 and 1997. Petula Clark filled in for Paige during her holiday in September/October 1995, before taking over the role in January 1996 when Paige departed for the United States. The last "star" to take on the role of Norma Desmond in London was Rita Moreno, who filled in for a vacationing Clark in September and October 1996. John Barrowman played Joe until 1995, when he was replaced by Alexander Hanson. Graham Bickley played the role for the final year of the London run.
The show closed on 5 April 1997, running for 1,530 performances.
Presse : The show closed for three weeks, re-opening on 19 April 1994, revamped to follow the Los Angeles production, with a second official "opening". The revamped musical had a new song, "Every Movie's A Circus", a new set, and new stars, Betty Buckley and John Barrowman. Michael Bauer, who had played DeMille in the original production replaced Benzali as Max, a role he played until the end of the London run (and subsequently on the UK tour and the BBC concert) and Anita Louise Combe (also from the original cast, understudying the role of Betty Shaeffer for the first nine months – and subsequently went on to play Betty Schaeffer in the Canadian Premiere with Diahann Carroll). Buckley and the production garnered rave reviews. David Lister of The Independent, for example wrote: "The show looked an improvement on the one that got decidedly mixed reviews last summer."

Commentaires : The show opened to luke-warm reviews with much criticism of the set design - a series of projections said to be dizzying, out of focus, and out of synch with the revolve. After four months Michael Crawford collapsed (as a result of over-sweating in the fat suit he wore to play Count Fosco) and his understudy, Steve Vamom, took over for several weeks. From February to April 2005 the role of Count Fosco was then played by Michael Ball, in a radically new interpretation of the part. From April onwards Fosco was played by Anthony Andrews.
The “original” version of the show closed on July 9th, and two days later re-opened with many cast changes and a heavily re-written libretto and song-order. This “new” version previewed through the summer with the Press invited to review the show in September - at which point Simon Callow became the fifth actor to play Count Fosco. This time the critics were a little more enthusiastic and the projections and revolving effects were said to be much better. However, the show closed on February 25th 2006 after a 19 month run and its 500th performance.
Presse : MICHAEL BILLINGTON du THE GUARDIAN: "Andrew Lloyd Webber's best score in years and Trevor Nunn's visually vibrant production can disguise the fact that this show is saddled with an impossible book."
CHARLES SPENCER du THE DAILY TELEGRAPH : "A terrible disappointment.....Yes, there are moments when Lloyd Webber comes up with the big lush romantic melodies that are his forte, though these days they tend to sound alarmingly like retreads of his own earlier work."
PAUL TAYLOR du THE INDEPENDENT : " Fluent production....I suspect The Woman In White will be haunting the West End for some time to come."
NICHOLAS DE JONGH du THE EVENING STANDARD : "So old-fashioned it deserves to be stuffed and displayed in a museum for deceased musicals... I came out humming with boredom."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE du THE TIMES: "Why...doesn’t The Woman in White leap from the stage of the smartly refurbished Palace with the panache I’d hoped?...This lady is too pale and plump for thrills."
QUENTIN LETTS du THE DAILY MAIL: "Lloyd Webber's music, never before so classical and operatic, becomes hypnotic and slowly unveils its melodies. You have to work for it but it's worth it."
SARAH HEMMING du THE FINANCIAL TIMES : "There are not many take-home tunes and David Zippel's lyrics are often bland. Still, as a gorgeous-looking piece of daft escapism, it works a treat."
PETER HEPPLE du THE STAGE : "Lloyd Webber can still write a good tune but it invariably echoes some of those he has written previously."
JANE EDWARDES du TIME OUT : "For all its good points, I fear there is no enough here to add up to a hit."

Commentaires : The Broadway production - a slightly shortened version - opened in November 2005, generally to negative reviews, with the feeling it was not a terrible show, just very unexciting. During the run Maria Friedman was taken ill and missed a number of performances while she underwent treatment for breast cancer. In a surprise decision, the Broadway show closed in February - a week before the London version. It had given just 109 regular performances and 20 previews. The producers cited Maria Friedman's frequent absences (as well as the negative reviews) as difficult obstacles to overcome.
