Revue (1916)


Musique: George M. Cohan

Livret: George M. Cohan
Production à la création: George M. Cohan • Sam H. Harris

Cette revue musicale s’inscrit dans la continuité du genre burlesque des scènes de Broadway qui débuta dans "Hello, Broadway!" (1914) et fut mise à jour pour 1916. Une note de programme a donné l’information suivante: "L’action du spectacle se déroule quelque part dans Rhode Island." C’était une continuation de l’utilisation de Cohan de Providence comme une cible de ses blagues.

Presse : "The great Mr. Cohan, who is retired now from the stage and has nothing to do except write plays and stage a few by other fellows, has been at such a loss to fill the long evenings of late that he has gone about to many other theatres than his own.
He has gone with a pencil in his hand and a twinkle in his eyes, and, being something of a dramatic critic himself, has dashed off his impressions ....
It's a diplodocus. It's a dinosaur.
Cohan's admirers were in full force last evening ... who would cheer themselves hoarse at the worst play in the world if he wrote it, and who would honestly believe it the best in the history of the stage.
It would take Mr. Cohan to keep any audience amused and contented throughout a first act lasting two hours and ten minutes ... the final curtain fell at ten minutes before midnight. (…) Much of what was seen last night is destined for the scrap basket, which is rather a pity, for certain kindred entertainments could make such excellent use of Mr. Cohan's leavings." (New York Times - 10/2/1916)
