Commentaires : The pre-West End tour played two weeks each at Cardiff and Southsea, and then moved straight into the Palace. During its month on the road there had been considerable re-writing and cast-changes, but it opened to good notices in spite of a number of suggestions that it was an obvious attempt to cash in on the success of “Showboat”. “Virginia” offered a similar mix of cotton field scenery, humming negroes, and the hit song “Roll Away Clouds” was sung by Walter Richardson (“another negro baritone to reach these shores” –Stage)
