The Prize embraces all aspects and genres of theatre from opera and ballet to circus and music hall, mime and puppetry as well as 'legitimate' forms and, as the list of previous winners shows, entries are drawn from right across the publishing spectrum. I demand a great deal from any production--stage or film--of "the Scottish play" because it is my nominee for the best play ever written. Kids have access to more and more mature theatrical visions premiering from Washington, D. The longest-running piece of musical theatre of the s was Hellzapoppina revue with audience participation, which played for 1, performances, setting a new Broadway record. Christopher Plummer, often a very good actor, walks stiffly through this movie and seems disinterested in the goings-on, but maybe he just doesn't like sugar. Company was based on a series of one act plays by librettist George Furth.

Sondheim Theatre, London W1from Jan This made for a much more satisfying kind of theatrical entertainment. A well-done stage presentation requires a spontaneity, and of course the movie lacks that. Over six feet tall. The best part of the movie is Julie Andrews singing, but even she can't save that opening helicopter shot, which strains my willing suspension of belief past the breaking point.

So why bother turning an already effective story into a musical? After all, it costs amazing amounts of time and money to add new songs or replace cast members, while changing the book simply means ordering the author to cut or revise. Director Sally Cookson is in her inventive element. When your imagination is stimulated so strongly, I think that's pure theatrical magic. Since time immemorial people have found it easier to connect with sentiments set to music. How will Tevye's family carry on?

The show also gives the impression of a country with an uncertain future, as the sailors and their women also have. The pair wrestle with their own integrity and beliefs, coming together to find that they both rely on each other in very similar ways.

The movie version is close to the theatrical production. This is why librettists must work in close collaboration with composers and lyricists to determine where songs fit and how to get into song as seamlessly as possible.

Many have theorized on this issue, but no one I know of has come up with a convincing explanation. Vivian Blaine re-creating her stage performance is a marvelous Miss Adelaide. I wish he hadn't made that choice. Plays ran longer, leading to better profits and improved production values, and men began to bring their families to the theatre.

This was accomplished by combining the lyricism of Kern's music with the skillful libretto of Oscar Hammerstein II. As transportation improved, poverty in London and New York diminished, and street lighting made for safer travel at night, the number of patrons for the growing number of theatres increased enormously.

George Cukor directs with loving touches. Some problems do not become evident until a show gets on its feet in front of paying audiences. I demand a great deal from any production--stage or film--of "the Scottish play" because it is my nominee for the best play ever written.
