Commentaires : Un terrible flop.
L'un des pires du West End de ces dernières décenies: 17 REPRESENTATIONS!!!!!
This was a sung-through soft-rock piece, and the programme contained a heartfelt plea for nuclear disarmament from the Mayor of Nagasaki. However well intentioned the piece, the critics unanimously agreed the whole show was a total, confused mess, offering trite lyrics, and bland and dull music. However, the show had been performed with enormous success throughout Japan.
