Presse : "Overinflated whoopee cushion" (Ben Brantley-New York Times) / "If you're looking for a little diversion, it will do the trick from 8 to 10:15." (Joe Dziemianowicz-New York Daily News) / "Goofily entertaining show." (Elisabeth Vincentelli-New York Post) / "It plunges one into a mindlessly passive euphoria." (John Simon-Bloomberg) / "If seeing Y-chromosome-addled cartoon characters get their due is your idea of an empowering experience, or at least a good time, 9 to 5 has your number." (Elysa Gardner-USA Today) / "Lavish and harmless entertainment" (Linda Winner-NewsDay) / "Unquestionably entertaining and likely to be pleasing Broadway audiences for some time." (Erik Haagensen-Back Stage) / ""9 To 5" rates a 5 for content but the razzle dazzle factor earns a 9. Depending on your taste for mindless extravaganza, the show's overall score is somewhere in between." (Roma Torre-NY1) "This overblown musical is bound to cause a division between critics looking for freshness and audience members all too eager for theatrical comfort food." (Frank Scheck-Hollywood Reporter) / ""9 to 5: The Musical" is a mixed bag. Savor it for Parton's songs and the three women who sing most of them. They make the case for the show being more than just another workday event." (Michael Kuchwara-Associated Press) / "The promising material and terrific performers are too often sold short by clumsy story-building, overwhelming sets and unfocused direction." (David Rooney-Variety)"

Commentaires longs: La version mise en scène par Joe Mantello à Broadway avait été programmée en 2001 mais a été postposée de trois ans suite aux attaques terroristes du 11 septembre 2001.
Dans cette production, de nombreux changements ont été introduits par rapport aux deux grandes version précédentes (Broadway 19000 et Londres 1992).
Presse : BEN BRENTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says “A very impressive achievement.” CLIVE BARNES of NEW YORK POST says “There's more ironic style here than theatrical substance.” HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says “A show both repellent and riveting.” ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY says “Squalid splendor.” FRANK SCHECK of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says "Demands to be seen."

Commentaires : The 50th Anniversary production of Mart Crowley's groundbreaking 1968 play The Boys in the Band also marks its Broadway premiere and plays a strictly limited 15-week engagement at the Booth Theatre.

The comic-drama originally premiered off-Broadway at the Playwrights' Unit in April 1968. After an initial intended run of just five performances, The Boys in the Band quickly gained a cult following, transferred to Theater Four on West 55th Street and ran for over 1,000 performances. Celebrity patrons during that period included the likes of Jackie Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Rudolf Nureyev, and Groucho Marx. The entire original off-Broadway cast also performed the play to great acclaim in London and were immortalised in William Friedkin's 1970 film adaptation.

Now, five openly gay producers have assembled an openly gay director and nine openly gay actors to mount a star-studded revival on the Great White Way and fifty years on, the piece shows us in equal measures just how far we have come and how, in other respects, nothing has changed at all. The play, of course, predates Stonewall and the AIDS epidemic and concentrates on the themes of self-loathing and homophobia. "Show me a happy homosexual, and I'll show you a gay corpse," suggests Michael, our host and the central character of the piece. Sadly in many parts of the country and of the world, this statement still rings heartwrenchingly true and fifty years later, despite tremendous political advancements and achievements, the sociological perspective remains partially as stagnant as ever.

Whilst some of Mr. Crowley's references may seem dated to younger audience members, there are many moments in The Boys in the Band that lead you to think it could have been written yesterday. The themes of racial identity still linger uncomfortably in the air in 2018, for example, whilst notions of monogamy and infidelity in the gay community are still widely topical. The play unapologetically depicts gay lifestyle and gay friendships, warts and all, and whilst the bitchiness and flamboyance of characters like Michael and Emory provide ample opportunities for laughs, the cast does an astonishing job of evoking the overwhelming sadness and loneliness at their core. What begins as formulaic as a sit-com eventually uses devices to expose the souls, torments and desires of our players to devastating effect.

David Zinn's slick scenic design of Michael's NYC apartment resembles a crimson glass house and should the inhabitants decide to start throwing stones, the whole fragile place would shatter and collapse around them... A fantastic metaphor for a striking and essential revival.

"Blisteringly funny, bruisingly sad and altogether wonderful play." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"In Stephen Karam’s beautifully wrought The Humans, even the small talk has larger echoes." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Even if the Blakes can't quite keep all the harsh realities of life at bay, Karam's empathetic rendering of a family enduring setbacks leaves the audience hopeful that they will find strength in their love for one another." Jennifer Farrar for Associated Press

"Under Joe Mantello's impeccable direction, and in the hands of an exemplary six-member ensemble, the play builds on the ample promise of Karam's earlier works, confirming him as a uniquely probing investigator of the contemporary American psyche." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

Presse : “'Wicked' does not, alas, speak hopefully for the future of the Broadway musical.” Ben Brantley for New York Times

“It's such a 'Wicked' waste of talent.” Howard Kissel for New York Daily News

“The most complete, and completely satisfying, new musical I've come across in a long time.” Elysa Gardner for USA Today

"Overproduced, overblown, confusingly dark and laboriously ambitious jumble." Linda Winer for Newsday

"Far too arch and sophisticated for children...lacks... sophistication and wit that would make it palatable for adults." Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

"The best thing about 'Wicked' is its stars, whose talents cast a powerful spell." Roma Torre for NY1

"Lavish, ambitious and problematic." Michael Kuchwara for Associated Press

Commentaires longs: Le plus long running musical à Chicago. "To be honest, we thought it would run 18 months, then we'd spend a year in Los Angeles and six months in San Francisco" dit le producteur David Stone. Et le spectacle n'est pas prêt de s'arrêter. On va même jusqu'à penser que c'est ce musical à Chicago qui a relancé la fréquentation des théâtres et par là-même le tourisme chic dans la ville.

Commentaires : The London show was tailored slightly for a British audience, with some changes in dialogue, choreography, and special effects. The London production celebrated its fifth anniversary on September 27th 2011 with a special curtain call featuring former West End cast members. After Idina Menzel's three-month run she was replaced by Kerry Ellis.
Other Elphabas have included Alexia Khadime and Rachel Tucker; with Dianne Pilkington and Louise Dearman as Glindas; and Oliver Tompsett, Lewis Bradley, Lee Mead (Fiyeros), and Desmond Barrit, Sam Kelly, Clive Carter (Wizards). In both New York and London the show initially received mixed reviews, but it seems to be a critic-proof show, and has had a phenomenal world-wide box office success.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH du THE EVENING STANDARD: "Remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises and sensations. Wicked works like a dream."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT: "I enjoyed very little...The songs sound like dozens you've heard before. The acting is, by and large, appalling. "
MICHAEL BILLINGTON du THE GUARDIAN: "Efficient, knowing and highly professional but more like a piece of industrial product than something that genuinely touches the heart or mind."
CHARLES SPENCER du THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: "Witty, enjoyable...No one could accuse Wicked of being a great musical – indeed at times it's a bit of a mess - but it proves far more enjoyable than I had dared to hope"
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE du THE TIMES: "Songs bang out, along with iffy lyrics and not-so-witty dialogue…I’d rather see The Wizard of Oz 20 times than this ersatz show once."
