Commentaires : The London production was a huge success, mostly welcomed as a joyful antidote to society’s lingering homophobia, and praised for its warm-heartedness, sheer exuberance, extravagance and completely over-the-top costumes and spectacle. The show ran the best part of three years, finally closing on New Year’s Eve, 2011. Cast changes during the run saw Ben Richards as Tick, Don Gallagher as Bernadette and Ray Meagher as Bob. The musical opened on Broadway in March 2011 with Will Swenson as Tick, Nick Adams as Adam, and Tony Sheldon repeating his role as Bernadette.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "I welcome it with open arms and a glad rag-bag of positive adjectives...ingenious adaptation" Paul Vale for THE STAGE says, "This stage adaptation takes the road-movie concept and translates it, fairly successfully, to the stage." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "It is gaudy, garish and loud and seems to be as much about costumes as content...everything in the stage version is underscored and overstated." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "There’s energy, fun, tunefulness and, above all, the most outrageous swirl of costumes that I...have yet encountered." MICHAEL COVENEY for THE INDEPENDENT cannot make up is mind calling it, "a juke-box musical format without much wit or cleverness" and also saying the show "is slick, well-organised and fairly enjoyable". CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Wildly entertaining...hugely touching as well as entertaining... The fastidious and the squeamish should avoid this show like the plague. Everyone else will have a terrific drag ball."
