Musical (2004)

Musique: Les Reed • Roger Cook
Paroles: Kit Hesketh Harvey
Livret: Les Reed • Roger Cook
Production à la création:

This 'evocative and glittering' musical, set in the 1920's, follows the story of an outrageously glamorous and fashionable couple - The Scott Fitzgeralds. He's a successful young author and she's the stylish young wife who, together, become the envy of all with their high spending and high-flying lifestyle. They created their own world of enchantment. Scott christened the period The Jazz Age, and Zelda lived it. Yet the darker tale that lay behind the dazzling facade just begged to be told.

Commentaires : Using the title of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s second novel, this was based on the true life story of Scott and Zelda. It was an expensive production with a lavish water fountain effect at the end of Act One. The critical reaction was extremely damning - “this calamitous enterprise resembles a slow motion car crash” - dull songs and an extremely dull book was the general verdict.
Presse : Très mauvaise…. ROBERT HANKS for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Fitzgerald musical not beautiful- and must surely be damned." FIONA MOUNTFORD for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Enjoyable"; LYNN GARDNER for THE GUARDIAN says, "Making the roaring 20s seem like the boring 20s." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Beautiful this show certainly isn't." SARAH HEMMING for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "A boring evening." IAN JOHNS for THE TIMES says, "Has all the zest of flat champagne."
