Commentaires : This extremely silly (and for many, enjoyable!) spoof of the Eurovision Song Contest had the merit of some funny parody songs sending up the whole Eurovision style, but with its peculiar story mixing togas and flared trousers, and the fact that the Eurovision Contest is already a parody of itself, the almost unanimous critical verdict was “nul point”, or at best, “un et demi”. (The show had originated in the fringe Drill Hall in the previous year). It came off within three weeks, having lost some £275,000. It was described by Jack Tinker in the “Daily Mail” as violating every clause of the Geneva Convention..

Version 2

Mama, I Want to Sing! (1995-01-London Run)

Type de série: Original London
Théâtre: London Run (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 5 mois 2 semaines
Nombre : 187 représentations
Première Preview : Tuesday 31 January 1995
Première : Wednesday 01 February 1995

Chorégraphie : Richard Sampson
Producteur :
Avec : Doris Troy (Mama Winter), Howard McCrary (Reverend Winter). Stacy Francis (Young Doris), Joanne Campbell (Narrator), Chaka Khan (Sister Carrie), Charles Stewart (Minister of Music)
Commentaires : This show held the record as the longest running all-black off-Broadway show, running for eight years, playing to over 3 million people and taking something like £38 million at the box office in stagings through Europe, Asia and Japan. The part of Doris Troy’s mother was played by Doris Troy herself, and the company included a 15 voice gospel choir. Generally the critics hated it! “Over-amplified, over-long, under-written, uninspired” (Sunday Express), “you end up aching for Motown and wishing the show had been about Diana Ross. Or even Jonathan Ross” (Michael Coveney in “The Observer”.)
