Commentaires : Billed as the “Salsa Comedy Murder Mystery”, written by Cinda Fox, heiress of the Firestone Rubber Company, and produced by her husband, Manny - this was a vanity production doomed from its earliest days. Several directors came and went: one, Bob Carlton, was publicly sacked by a screaming Manny in front of the matinee audience during a Norwich try-out; the second, Michael Rooney (son of Mickey) was forced to quit when refused a work permit, although he did (apparently!) attempt to direct it by telephone from Paris; pre-opening rumours suggested several other director casualties and finally no directing credit appeared - just last minute Murray Melvin and Syd Ralph billed as “Artistic Advisors”. The critics rocked with laughter - laughing at, rather than with, this “fantastically dreadful new musical” - and it was immediately referred to as “Suicidal Tendencies”. It closed after just one week.

LYN GARDNER for THE OBSERVER says, "Thoughts turn not to murder but to suicide during this misbegotten musical ."
KIERON QUIRKE for TIME OUT says, "Thi sterrible show makes for strangely easy viewing."
PETER HEPPLE for THE STAGE says, "It is a case of predictability meeting banality."
