Commentaires : Based on the novel by E.L.Doctorow, this show opened in Toronto in 1966, and was re-staged the following year in Los Angeles. In January 1998 the show was given its Broadway production at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts in a cast that included Brian Stokes Mitchell, Marin Mazzie and Audra McDonald. It ran for 861 performances, winning many major awards, but closed suddenly in January 2000 when the producers were declared bankrupt. The London production, though highly praised, did not succeed, closing after just 101 performances.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "The score...rarely compels ear or heart." He goes on to say, "Maria Friedman...sings with a rich, sinuous virtuosity."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, " Brisk, pacey, tuneful..touching."

MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Packs a considerable emotional punch."

CHARLES SPENCER for DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "A show blessed with real heart, great songs and superb performances."
