Brilliantly factual story line brought to life by Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
Tragically "pulled" from the West End two months early.
The highly talented and motivated actors/actresses must have been devastated.
One day, perhaps it will return to the stage. I do hope so.

An interesting book if you have the CD of this musical and want to understand the story more fully. A great sadness that the show had only a short stage run because it was brilliant! It helps of course, if you are old enough to remember the 'scandal' of the early 1960's and Lloyd-Webber certainly captured the feel of the era in his music.

I bought this copy of the libretto of Andrew LLoyd-Webber's latest show after listening to the original West End cast CD.
I find it difficult to comprehend why this well written show, with its fine score, should have closed prematurely. I continue to enjoy the music from the show, and the play allows one to further appreciate just how the songs meld into the action.

Didnt manage to see the show...first Webber show Ihavent seen but not too bothered on listening to the CD. This is a good companion to the CD and gives you a good insight to the 60s when the Profumo Affair was going on what this scenario is all about.
This is the full script from what I can gather and good for anyone whi is interested in this period and the lyrics of the songs and the show itself. I thought the song were poor for Webber and certainly NOT a family show....This is good to read while listening to the CD but on its own dosent really merit as a book. This is for theatrical show goers mainly, rather than a book as there are other books oout at the moment dealing specifically more with Stephen Ward himself....
