Blockheads (1984-10-Mermaid Theatre-London)

Type de série: Original
Théâtre: Mermaid Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée :
Nombre : 22 représentations
Première Preview : Inconnu
Première : Wednesday 17 October 1984
Dernière : Inconnu
Mise en scène : Arthur Whitelaw
Chorégraphie :
Producteur :
Avec : Mark Hadfield (Stan Laurel), Kenneth H. Waller (Oliver Hardy), Simon Browne, Larry Dann, Susan Denaker, Richard Drabble, MeggNicol
Commentaires : The supporting cast played several roles each, covering such characters as Stan’s father, Hal Roach the film producer, James Finlayson, Keystone cops, cameramen and fellow actors. Mark Hadfield and Kenneth Waller were praised for their “look-a-like” portrayals, but the show was judged empty, shapeless, and pleasantly innocuous. It lasted just two and a half weeks.
Presse : "... a bracing, rugged and exhilarating adaptation of Bragg's novel ... splendidly original music ... a magnificent British achievement." Time Out
"... hewing his (Goodall) musical line from Britain's choral traditions with an audacity that is at once thrilling and fearful..." City Limits
"Howard Goodall's score is one of the finest I have heard in a British musical in years." Guardian
"thoughtful and, on occasions most moving ... That rare thing: a folk opera of our immediate past." Daily Mail
"Melvyn Bragg's qualities as a novelist-humanity, idealism and a complex and highly articulate man's understanding of those who are simple and inarticulate-shine out from this musical..." Sunday Telegraph

Commentaires : The production originated at the Watermill Theatre, Newbury. This show had a long run, a year and 2 months—surprising inasmuch as “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” had achieved a very much shorter in 1968.
