Commentaires : It opened with great success at the Watford Palace (11/3/1987), but failed to catch on when it transferred to the West End.
Presse : "...This musical is fortunate in having in Maria Friedman, as Janie, an actress with a bright, vacuous charm of a Goldie Flawn who can brighten a stage even when she is up to her neck in fatuity..." Multon Shulam, The London Evening Standard (8 April 1987)
"...The plot deals with dumb blonde Janie Jones who is manipulated then discarded by the commercial sponsors of a quiz game show. The part recalls the invincible innocence and sublime daffiness of Judy Holliday whom the splendid Maria Friedman here occasionally resembles - with a dash of Goldie Hawn and a belting mellifluous way with the songs thrown in..." Martin Hoyle, The Financial Times (8 April 1987)
"...The satire Spin of the Wheel is so bland that the show is virtually indistinguishable from the ghastly world of TV light entertainment which is its subject... Maria Friedman brings an agreeable singing voice to the role of Janie..." Charles Osborne, The Daily Telegraph (9 April 1987)
"...Maria Friedman, a delightful actress with a great voice..." Lester Middlehurst, Today (10 April 1987)
