Musical (2015)

Musique: George Fenton • Simon Chamberlain
Paroles: Don Black
Livret: Terry Johnson
Production à la création:

It's London, 1937, and recently-widowed eccentric, Laura Henderson, is looking for a way of spending her time and money when her attention falls on a run-down former cinema in Great Windmill Street. Hiring feisty impresario Vivian Van Damm to look after the newly renovated Windmill Theatre, the improbable duo present a bill of non-stop variety acts. But as war looms something more is required to boost morale and box office... When Mrs Henderson comes up with the idea of The Windmill Girls – glamorous young women posing as nude statues – audiences flock. And as the Blitz hits London, The Windmill provides a refuge for all, boasting the spirit-raising slogan "We Never Close".

Presse : Les critiques sont bonnes:

"This is a show that not only improves on the original movie, but also gives the comatose British musical a healthy injection of energy." Michael Billington for The Guardian
"Has plenty of heart, but its art is somewhat lacking." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph
"As for the songs, there are a lot of them from Don Black (lyrics) and George Fenton and Simon Chamberlain (music), but none are memorable. The last thing the West End needs is an endless stream of American musicals, but this home-grown fare simply isn’t good enough." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
