The critic Bill Hagerty summed it up as “Thomas Hardy’s heroine Tess was a mess, wretched and doomed, and the musical at the Savoy is much the same” This was a sung-through show which included country dancing by “buxom elderly milkmaids frolicking on the kind of village green last seen in Palladium pantomimes circa 1955” (The Spectator). At the opening performance the role of Angel Clare was played at the last moment by the understudy, Robert Irons, replacing Jonathan Monks (“who had the good fortune to be unwell” - Mail on Sunday). The show was universally criticised for its mind-numbing banality, and its musical hubris. It ran for ten weeks.
