Commentaire: This revue was first presented by Charles B. Cochran at the Palace, Manchester on 28 February 1928, where it ran until March 17 as Charles B. Cochran's 1928 Revue a pattern of titling that both Cochran and André Charlot - the world's leading revue impressarios - had adopted since the advent of revue as a form of entertainment. The show was a tremendous hit and transferred to the London Pavilion on 22 March 1928 as This Year of Grace.  (plus) 


Presse: “Quite a good revue on good professional lines” (Sat Review).

“A splendid show from beginning to end” (Stage).

Commentaire:   


Presse: Stage said the revue was mixed in quality; while there were “brilliantly staged ballets and production numbers,” Noël Coward’s sketches were “mediocre when they [were] not unpleasant.”

The reviewer in The Sunday Times was not impressed, calling it "a curious mixture of perfect beauty and perfect drivel," with "not a good tune in the whole piece"

Whereas The Times critic responded more positively, noting that "as a whole, with the dancing always preponderating, the revue [was] excellent."

The Era's reviewer wrote on May 9, 1925, "The most comical thing in the revue is the Vicarage Garden Party on the lines of a musical comedy, with Miss Hermione Baddeley giving a clever and cruel burlesque of Nellie, the heroine, and Mr. Ernest Thesiger and Mr. Douglas Byng, as two clergymen, singing the funniest number of the evening."

The Morning Post (1 May 1925) says: "Mr Charles Cochran's new revue is at once the most decadent and most brilliant thing he has ever done. the whole thing is more than modern, bizarre, grotesque, fantastic, unnatrual. the speed of the change from scene to scene, of the performance of each number, is feverish, burlesquing the speed of opur overheated life. At times the players seem mad, intoxicated with the desire to force their bodies to do something faster, faster."

"As befits Mr. Coward's genius, many of the incidents are as nature seen through a glass crookedly, and when we see some normal little typical revue duet-dance face to face, it seems positively dull - an effort to restore the company to a state of mental balance. Those arid, futile people that Mr. Coeward puts into his plays dash about the stage, worked into afrenzy by the syncopated music."

"M. Massine, who produced the two amazing ballets, 'The Rake', suggested by engravings of Hogarth, and 'Crescendo', an attempt to 'shatter' the gentle tranquility of Les Sylphides by the insistent clamour of modernity - both left one gasping - danced briliantly. His resource is magnificent, his multiplicity of movement astonishing, his accuracy marvellous. But all of course, bizarre, preposterous, in so much that the beautiful stately 'Hungarian Wedding' with which the revue ended almost perished because the contrast was too great. The number at the end of the first part, 'Couldn't We Keep on Dancing?' should be taken as the finale."
