Armfeldt - Hermione Gingold / Carl-Magnus Mittelheim - Laurence Guittard / Erich Egerman - Christopher Guard / Fredericka Armfeldt - Chloe Franks / Burt - Heins Marecek / Petra - Lesley Duncan / Conductor - Jonathan Tunick
Commentaires longs: ▶ Most of the female singing vocals (except for Diana Rigg's) were dubbed by Elaine Tomkinson
▶ Because the locale was changed from Sweden to Austria, many of the character names were altered accordingly. In some cases, it merely involved different spellings — Fredrik and Fredrika became Frederick and Fredericka — but in other cases the name was different. Henrik became Erich, the Malcolms became the Mittelheims, and Frid became Kurt.
In addition to the other changes that he made in the score, Stephen Sondheim shortened and revised "Liaisons". This new version was recorded by Hermione Gingold, with full orchestra, and it may have been filmed. It was not, however, in the released film and no footage has turned up (if it was indeed filmed).
▶ The producers wanted to hire Cary Grant for the role of Frederick but Hal Prince would not allow it.
▶ The film originally premiered at the Deauville Film Festival in September. It was then given an official premiere in Los Angeles in December 1977 and opened in New York and a wider release on March 8, 1978.
▶ Filming began in September 1976 and lasted for approximately three months.

Le rôle d'Evita était un rôle très convoité. Le spectacle a été très médiatisé aux États-Unis après son monstrueux succès à Londres. Suite à ce battage médiatique, plusieurs stars ont été approchées pour le rôle-titre, dont: Barbra Streisand, Ann-Margret, Meryl Streep, Faye Dunaway et Raquel Welch.

Commentaires : Paul Nicholas et David Ian, avec les producteurs originaux Robert Stigwood et David Land, ont monté une version étroitement basée sur la production originale de Londres avec Marti Webb dans le rôle-titre. Malgré certaines critiques sur le choix de Marti Webb à l'âge de 50 ans, le succès de la tournée a mené à des prolongations du Tour tout au long de 1996.

Commentaires : This was an outstanding revival. Elena Roger (a genuine Argentinian) was acclaimed for a superb, dazzling performance; the Elena Roger tango-themed choreography was described as sizzingly erotic; the set design by Christopher Oram sumptuously re-created the architectural grandeur of Buenos Aires; Michael Grandage was hailed as one of the UK’s best directors; and, ultimately, the score was recognised as one of the very best by Andrew Lloyd Wber and Tim Rice. This was a triumph and hugely praised, and yet, for some reason, did not succeed at the box office. It closed in May 2007 after just eleven months eleven months.
Commentaires longs: Une très belle version près de 25 ans après l'originale dans une mise en scène simple mais réaliste et émouvante. La distribution est de très haut niverau, ce qui ne gache en rien notre plaisir.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH du THE EVENING STANDARD: "Dynamic production."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON du THE GUARDIAN : "Decent revival...the show is certainly a great vehicle and the Argentinian Elena Roger rides it in modest triumph...although the show is pleasing to watch, it never achieves the ecstasy one looks for in a musical."
CHARLES SPENCER du THE DAILY TELEGRAPH : "Outstanding revival...Almost every song is memorable."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE du THE TIMES: "Riveting show."
PAUL TAYLOR du THE INDEPENDENT: "Powerful production."

Knockabouts, Bums, and Toughs portrayed by Leonard John Crofoot, Ray Roderick, Kelly Walters, Steve Owsley, Malcolm Perry.
Presse : The reviews were mixed at best. In his New York Times review, Frank Rich wrote: "...the show has become a desperate barrage of arbitrary musical numbers, portentous staging devices, extravagant costumes..., confused plot twists and sociological bromides..." "Grind" fared poorly at the box office; "The production was a disaster; the show lost its entire $4.75 million investment, and Prince and three other members of the creative team were suspended by the Dramatists Guild for signing a "substandard contract." 1985 was a bad year for Broadway musicals, and only one hit (Big River) had emerged by the time Tony nominations were submitted. Since there was little decent competition, "Grind" received a Tony nomination for Best Musical. Ken Mandelbaum wrote of the season: "The original Big River came along at the end of a dismal season for new musicals, and Leader of the Pack, Quilters, and the fascinating but unworkable Grind posed virtually no competition.

Even critics who hated Grind were impressed by Leilani Jones' performance: Frank Rich wrote: "Miss Jones, in her Broadway debut, is a find - a gifted young performer lacking only a little flash." She received the Tony Award, the Drama Desk Award, and the Theatre World Award as Best Featured Actress in a Musical that year.

Commentaires : Madeline Kahn left the show early in the run after having missed 10 performances in two months. She was replaced by her understudy, Judy Kaye. At the time, it was reported that the role was too vocally demanding for her to perform eight times a week, and that she had proposed having Judy Kaye play matinees.

Hal Prince stated in later interviews that she was having trouble commanding the energy to play physical comedy eight times a week, and his statements suggest that he and possibly the writers tried to persuade her to leave. At least a few critics, having attended critics' previews rather than opening night (when Prince says she was wonderful), did find her performance a bit lackluster.

Between the out-of-town opening and the Broadway opening, the role was made more vocally demanding. It may be that this was done at Kahn's suggestion. It does seem that after the Broadway opening, at some performances she sang lower notes in place of some of the high notes that had been added.

Commentaires : Based on Joseph Roth’s 1939 novel “The Tale of the 1002 nd Night”, “Paradise Found” was directed by Broadway showbiz-royalty, and included some of the greatest Broadway talents in the cast. Its London fringe debut was planned as a cheaper way of launching a try-out workshop prior to Broadway. It was a much anticipated and eagerly awaited “big” event. But that event turned out to be a huge flop, “an absolute stinker”.
Commentaires longs: The plot itself was a “pastiche of unbelievable coarseness and vulgarity” and the lyrics attached to Johann Strauss melodies were decried as abysmal - especially the song where the Baron and Mizzi jointly sing “ I’m Feeling Yours { boom-boom, boom-boom } and You’re Feeling Mine {boom-boom,boom-boom }” to the tune of the Blue Danube Waltz ! The critics, aghast at such a total mess, could not believe how such names as Hal Prince, Susan Stroman and Mandy Patinkin could ever have agreed to work on such rubbish.

Commentaires : The longest running show in the history of Broadway...

Andrew Lloyd Webber's world renowned rock opera adaptation of Gaston Leroux's novel won the 1988 Tony Award for Best Musical and has gone on to become the longest-running show in Broadway history, playing over 10,000 performances and running for over a quarter of a decade!

This updated musical masterpiece combines both quality musicality with a darkly romantic story that leaves you on the very edge of your seat. Combine the world-class casting with breathtaking theatrical effects, and you have a musical phenomenon that has enthralled audiences across generations all around the world.

Did you know?
Phantom is THE longest-running Broadway musical, having clocked up over 27 years and in 2013 celebrated its 25th anniversary with its 10,400th performance. Bets are currently being taken at New York City Theater Towers, on how many performances will be played by 2018, which the show's 30th anniversary!
Presse : "It may be possible to have a terrible time at The Phantom of the Opera, but you'll have to work at it. Only a terminal prig would let the avalanche of pre-opening publicity poison his enjoyment of this show, which usually wants nothing more than to shower the audience with fantasy and fun, and which often succeeds, at any price. The physical production, Andrew Bridge's velvety lighting included, is a tour de force throughout—as extravagant of imagination as of budget." Frank Rich for New York Times

"It is a spectacular entertainment, visually the most impressive of the British musicals. Perhaps the most old-fashioned thing about it is it's a love story, something Broadway has not seen for quite a while. To say the score is Lloyd Webber's best is not saying a great deal. His music always has a synthetic, borrowed quality to it. As you listen you find yourself wondering where you've heard it before. In this case you've heard a lot of it in Puccini, in the work of other Broadway composers and even the Beatles. Nevertheless he seems to be borrowing from better sources, and he has much greater sophistication about putting it all together. There are some droll opera parodies, several beautiful songs, an impressive septet and a grand choral number, all richly orchestrated." Howard Kissel for New York Daily News

"Technically it is a piece of impeccably crafted musical theater, with theme, music and staging in perfect accord. They combine as a total statement that depends for its potency more on the sum of its parts than on the strength of any individual component." Clive Barnes for New York Post

"The London audiences aren't wrong. "The Phantom Of The Opera" is romantic musical theater hokum in the grand manner - hokum cordon blue - and it justifies the feverish buildup that has given it a $16,500,000 advance. It's good for a Broadway run of several years. Andrew Lloyd Webber has taken the Gaston Leroux potboiler about the love-crazed disfigured genius who lives in the catacombs of the Paris Opera and fashioned it into a thrilling and musically rich mass legit entertainment. The 19th century period spectacle, scenic legerdemain, soaring melodies and exceptional singing are at the service of an involving and piquantly offbeat love story, all of it staged with brilliantly organized flair by Harold Prince, back in top form." Richard Hummler for Variety

Commentaires : No career on the Broadway stage can quite match up to Harold Prince's. With a record number of 21 Tony Awards under his belt, the acclaimed Broadway director and producer is celebrated in this Broadway premiere courtesy of the Manhattan Theatre Club. Hal truly is the Prince of Broadway!

The musical revue, which first premiered in Japan in 2015, brings together the crème de la crème of Broadway talent, re-imagining the classics that Mr. Prince brought to life over six decades of his illustrious career. It has been common practice in the music industry for decades for recording artists who have enjoyed enough longevity in the business to release “Greatest Hits” albums. After all, if you release enough studio albums, you’re bound to have enough beloved hits on there to justify the project. Well, now acclaimed Broadway director and producer Harold Prince is getting in on the act and has compiled a musical revue of theatrical gems from his unprecedented stage career.

With a cast of nine, comprised of musical theatre veterans and rising stars, each of them (whether male or female) takes a turn at breaking the fourth wall and speaking to us in Mr. Prince’s own words. They deliver insider anecdotes about his career choices as if they were channelling his spirit, signified all the while by them grasping Prince’s signature glasses in their hand or characteristically balancing them on top of their heads. These interludes sporadically appear between musical numbers that have become iconic and eternal in Broadway history.

Directed by Prince himself, with choreography and co-direction from fellow Broadway favorite Susan Stroman (a five-time Tony Award winner in her own right), the revue attempts to break away from the notion of being self-aggrandizing in that the cast members (as Prince) frequently remind us of the number of flops and negative reviews the director/producer has endured over the years. Indeed, at the beginning of the show an onslaught of show titles are projected onto the stage one after another as a kind of larger-than-life résumé and perhaps only the most ardent of Broadway aficionados would be comfortably familiar with every single title. But, of course, the household names are all there in all their shining glory and it is these that provide the musical content for this nostalgic evening of celebration.

The overture alone makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, beautifully arranged by Jason Robert Brown (who also provides the original song “Do the Work” for the curtain call). He has intricately woven together an exhilarating, musical patchwork quilt of all the standards we are about to experience (again), before we strap ourselves in for a rollercoaster ride through the decades. From West Side Story to She Loves Me, from Sondheim classics such as Follies, Company and Sweeney Todd to Lloyd Webber behemoths like Evita and The Phantom of the Opera, Hal has collaborated with them all... even Kander & Ebb are gloriously showcased here by Cabaret and Kiss of the Spiderwoman. The list goes on...

Highlights of the show include a heart-wrenching rendition of “Send in the Clowns” from A Little Night Music by Emily Skinner and Bryonha Marie Parham’s show-stopping take on the title song from Cabaret, whilst Chuck Cooper gives a joyously playful version of Fiddler on the Roof’s “If I Were a Rich Man” and Michael Xavier hits it out of the park with “Being Alive” from Company. And Tony Award nominee Tony Yazbeck, who once again proves he belongs to the tap-dancing elite during “The Right Girl” from Follies.
Presse : "The frilly candy-box sampler... Is a name — even one as perfumed with success and creativity as Harold Prince — enough to hold together a show whose point of view seems to begin and end with the royal epithet of its title? Watching this production’s overtaxed ensemble perform vignettes from different musicals, in an oppressive succession of themed wigs and costumes, is like hearing a rushed raconteur drop name after famous name, without bothering to explain their significance." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"You couldn’t wish for a more ideal place than Broadway to honor Prince. But you could wish for a better, more illuminating show in which to do it... One can’t helped but be impressed by the scope and breadth — but at the same time feel left in the dark about Prince’s precise contributions." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"It’s a pleasant collection of beloved and familiar Broadway songs, but there isn’t much to it." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"An entertaining compilation, despite the shortage of context." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"A sumptuous revue celebrating the 60-plus-years of legendary director-producer Harold Prince’s fabulous career. Watching the hits flash by, like diamonds on a necklace, is sure to make you cry – with tears of joy if you saw that particular show, and tears of regret if you missed it." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Commentaires : This production, with a cast of 57 and directed by the legendary Hal Prince, had originated in Toronto, then transferred to Broadway, where it was highly praised and heaped with awards.

It ran for 21 weeks on a limited term engagement.

Commentaires : Based on the play by Christopher Bond. This Grand-Guignol semi-operatic piece is generally held to be a masterpiece and has gone on to have world-wide success. Yet this first London production failed. It was an exact copy of the Broadway version which won 8 Tony Awards and ran for 558 performances - but the London critics were scathing. They claimed the production was over-blown, swamped with heavy scenery and pretentious. (A later much simpler “chamber” version at the Cottesloe Theatre was an enormous success.)

Commentaires longs: Whistle Down the Wind premiered at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. on December 12, 1996, starring Davis Gaines as The Man and Irene Molloy as Swallow. It drew mixed reviews, [1] and the Broadway opening that had been scheduled for April 17, 1997, was subsequently cancelled. It was felt that, among other things, it was Harold Prince's direction that had led to its failure. However, the Washington Post review wrote that "Harold Prince brings all his brilliant directing skills to bear on the material, and with Binkley and set designer Andrew Jackness he produces some inventive, often startling staging." It got a huge amount of advance publicity, due to Steinman's status as a popular American songwriter and how strange the combination of Steinman and Lloyd Webber seemed based on Steinman's prior work. The Washington Post review noted "Steinman and Lloyd Webber's differing styles of gothic intensity might have been expected to be mutually enhancing, but in fact they cancel each other out."
