Review – Gone With The Wind – The Musical! (Act 1) at the New London Theatre

Thursday 10 April 2008

The London Marathon arrived a few days early for the Whingers. Standing in freezing weather watching people run past dressed as rhinos would have been a doddle compared to this.

Thankfully the Whingers and their plus-eight (remember that – it is important later) had come prepared: thermos flasks of coffee, energy drinks, sports chocolate, pillows and hot water bottles were all smuggled into the auditorium. Beneath his smart evening-wear Andrew was sporting a natty and almost fresh set of his favourite jim-jams.

Most shockingly of all, Phil had broken his “no caffeine after 5pm” rule (one of the conditions of his ASBO) in a determined effort to make it through to the very end of the four-hour (but getting shorter) marathon that is a preview of Gone With The Wind – The Musical!

The big question on everyone’s lips, of course, was: “How can they possibly squeeze the thousand-odd pages of Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel into “just” four hours? The answer is simple…

… They cram it in. The evening unfolded thus:

7.00: The Whingers’ entourage mostly arrive at the theatre as arranged.
7.29: PaulInLondon arrives; Phil stops breathing into paper bag.

7.32: Actors arrive on stage and deliver some purple prose.
7.33: 20 latecomers scuttle into the their seats.
7.34: The stage revolves for the first time (this is a Trevor Nunn production remember) and some slaves sing a Negro Spiritual (can you say that any more?).
7.36: Narrators begin to provide a quick run down on who everyone is.
7.36: Scarlett’s father (who we know to be Irish because he says things like “Is it crying you are?”) sings an Irish ditty.
7.45: Recently purchased slaves arrive.
7.46: A party. Rhett appears.
7.52: Rhett speaks for the first time (not sure what he said).
7:55: Scarlett tells Ashley that she loves him. They sing.
7.58: They split up; she slaps him.
7.59: She agrees to marry Charles Hamilton.
7.58: The American Civil War begins. They sing.
8.01: Scarlett marries Charles. Charles goes to the war.
8.02: Charles dies of pneumonia.
8.03: Scarlett has a baby.
8.04: Scarlett goes to Atlanta. They sing.
8.10: Everyone goes to a fund raiser and Rhett arrives imploring people to buy a pillowcase.
8.16: They auction the ladies and dance.
8.18: They return to Tara. Scarlett sings and actually says “fiddledeedee”. A narrator assures us that “the rest of 1862 went swiftly by”.
8.25: A lot of war news arrives; the set revolves and most of the men die. They sing.
8:30: Ashley returns from the war.
8.31: Having stayed for a week, Ashley returns to the war. He sings and has a snog with Scarlett. The set revolves. There is another fundraiser. Rhett stands on a chair and says something (didn’t quite catch what).
8.35: The townswomen diss Rhett through the medium of song.
8.38: A telegram arrives with the news that Ashley is missing, presumed dead.
8.40: The war reaches Atlanta. Scarlett stays with the pregnant Melanie who is too ill to be moved.
8.42: Desperate for a doctor, Scarlett goes to the streets of Atlanta where she sees (according the narrators) hundreds of injured and dead. She steps over 15 actors, goes round in a circle and steps over them again to suggest the scale of the horror.
8.45: The bed-ridden Melanie – now in labour – is wheeled on. A narrator explains that Scarlett stays with her for two or three hours.
8.47: Melanie has the baby and is wheeled off again.
8.49: Wounded soldiers – all now bearded – wander through the auditorium on their way out of Atlanta.
8.50: Atlanta burns (three bits of scenery flop down and the lighting goes red).
8.51: Rhett leaves to join the army telling Scarlett that he doesn’t give a damn (magnficently rising above the obvious fact that the audience doesn’t either).
8.52: Scarlett and Prissy pull a cart to Tara. A narrator explains that the invisible horse dies. Dawn comes.
8.55: “Tomorrow is another day”.
8.58: Scarlett goes to a neighbouring plantation in search of food. She sings “Gone With the Wind”.

But we get ahead of ourselves:

Andrew had a portent of doom on first entering the theatre when he spotted the racks of cushions made available for the comfort of patrons.

It took a bit longer for Phil to cotton on but he realised something was terribly wrong when Martin (who loved Wicked for God’s sake) looked at Phil over the top of his glasses after only 15 minutes with a pained expression on his face.

On the plus side, director Trevor Nunn groups people on stage very well: it’s his signature, but sometimes it was very hard to tell who was singing (they are all wired of course) or narrating. Phil’s head span like Linda Blair’s in The Exorcist trying to to work it all out.

And the cast sing with such conviction that you almost believe the songs might be quite good and the lyrics worth listening to. But this is an illusion. It’s not that they are awful (as in the Take Flight sense of “awful”) they’re just very bland. Lyrics such as “softly as a whisper you’re always on my mind” and “seek love and ye shall find” just seem like a terrible waste of effort (to sing, not to write, obviously). But thankfully (and presumably because they’ve cut them) they never last very long. This causes its own problems because they never seem to build into proper songs.

Who decided Margaret Martin, who has no previous theatre credits, could write a musical worthy of staging on this scale in the West End? We mean, it’s not as though she’s married to Trevor Nunn or anything. The Whingers can understand him wanting to stage his wife Imogen Stubb’s play We Happy Few, but what possible reason can he have for staging this. It’s a mystery.

But one person at least had faith in her abilities: Margaret Martin. According to her bio, “Margaret Martin supported herself from the age of 15. As a single mother, she identified closely with the challenges faced by Gone With the Wind’s young protagonist, Scarlett O’Hara. She felt the filmed adaptation left considerably more within Margaret Mitchell’s epic tale to be explored. Margaret Martin developed Gone With the Wind for the musical theatre on her own.” So she thought the movie was a bit too short , did she? What’s next on her list? Andy Warhol’s Empire?

For personal reasons which can’t be gone into here for legal reasons pertaining to a custody battle over a wide-screen TV Phil was really only there to see the burning of Atlanta. But by the interval he wasn’t sure if it had burned at all. The Olympic torch had more spectacle, even doused.

There were guffaws around the theatre when Scarlett stepped over a few huddled bodies on the floor then rushes round the stage to step over them again. When she announced that “there was death in the air” it was all too much for Phil – the smell of death was certainly pervading the auditorium, but not in the way she meant.

And then there were the hoop skirts. Now, Phil believes you can never have too many hoop skirts on a stage but the ladies do urgently need to be sent back to hoop management class to learn how to handle them properly. Poor Melanie (Madeleine Worrall who’d so impressed the Whingers as Cinderella in Stephen Fry’s Old Vic panto) was having the worst problems and really struggled to maintain her dignity when seated.

And why did the women keep rolling up rolls of toilet paper?

Designer John Napier (Cats, Les Mis, Starlight Express etc) has created an impressive environment which encompasses the entire auditorium but the central set doesn’t achieve much – no matter how many times they revolved it, it always ended up looking the same.

But these are – incredibly – minor carps. The problem is that it’s all so rushed. There is absolutely no time to develop any kind of drama. Although we are told that Scarlett spends two or three hours nursing Melanie through her difficult labour, it’s over in less than two minutes so there is absolutely no sense that this was in any way a gruelling ordeal. She might have been helping Melanie shell peas for all the impact it made.

And the narration, the narration, the endless, constant narration. What little hearts the whingers have sunk like the stones they resemble when the natration first began. By the time we were told that “the rest of 1862 went swiftly by” both Whingers were trying to block it out.

In the back of Andrew’s mind he recognised this story-telling device from somewhere but couldn’t quite put his finger on it. Eventually the penny dropped. Ms Martin was employing the narrative technique developed for primary school nativity plays – “So Mary and Joseph and the donkey went to Bethlehem…”.

The production also employs this device in lieu of set: we were told that the library was full of books but saw only a sofa against a black void.

Performances? Well, everyone gave it their all. There was plenty of gusto. Poor Jill Paice as Scarlett is hardly ever off the stage. She sings fantastically, of course, but it’s all a lot of effort for no return and there’s so much rushing around that she has no time to develop any kind of relationship with the audience, many of whom were wishing that in this version of the American civil war the Yankees had developed napalm so that a sudden and conclusive victory might curtail the story.

TV talent show winner Darius Danesh was struggling with an infection of some kind (no, really). He certainly looks the part and does a decent southern accent and has an annoying smugness that seems just about right for Rhett (we assume this was acting) but isn’t particularly charismatic and Andrew struggled to make out most of what he was saying.

Quite what the critics will make of it all, who knows? No doubt some will trot out the rather obvious “Frankly I didn’t give a damn” so we’ll get in there first. The show’s merchandising even manages to get a pop in.

Tomorrow may be another day, but by the time the Whingers emerged into the night air during the interval it practically already was. And this was just at the interval. The second act was to be even longer.

In the event, the Whingers were pleased that they had brought their London marathon performance foil with them*. Now about Act 2…

  1. Who is this “TV talent show winner Darius Danesh”? I thought the point about Darius was that he DIDN’T win, that he owes his fame in some bizarre way to an unshakable self-belief that exceeded both the Pop Idol panel’s and the viewing public’s estimation of it. Which puts his casting here in a whole ‘nother light. Or possibly that’s the flickering of Atlanta.

  2. Oh, Ian, you know that facts are not our forte.

  3. Colin Says:

    I met Darius at a dinner party about two years ago. He was annoyingly smug. I would say no acting required for this role.

  4. terry Says:

    you’re not ‘selling’ it to me!

    Wasn’t John Napier a plumber in a previous life? I suppose that would explain the lack of imagintion in his designs. As long as something BIG moves by way of hydraulics…job done!

    So do you think we should be rushing to see this extravaganza before the opening case it doesn’t make it night night 2?

  6. The Wisemans Says:

    WEll, How true. GWTW is probably the worst show I have ever seen in the west end. We left in the interval stuffing our fists in our mouths so as not to laugh out loud in the faces of punters who were obviously going to stay with it. Bloody hell, it even looked cheap. The buring of Atalanta!!! I’ve seen better on our local am dram stage. The songs!!! rubbish, the choreography, rubbish. And the narration – we’ve heard of show and tell – but 2 hours of showing (poorly) and then having someone tell you that they were hangning out the bunting, counting the bodies etc. while the cast do it in front of you. As my daughter, a performed playwright and actor, said – ‘Trevor Nunn has obviously gone mad …..’ The Critics – I can’t wait – will maul it to death.

  7. J Says:

    I just wanted to say that I’m going to see it on Wednesday. And fair enough if its shit, but why would you take such pleasure in ripping it?

    ‘Trevor Nunn has obviously gone mad …..’ The Critics – I can’t wait – will maul it to death.

    I know a member of the cast and this has been her life long dream to be in the West End. I may seem biased but whether its shit or not. I can’t understand why you’d get so jolly about saying its bad.
    I dunno, I just wonder whether when or IF you ever fulfill your lifes ambition whether you’d enjoy someone ripping it to bits like u have.

  8. @ J: “why would you take such pleasure in ripping it?” – it’s compensation for the £29.50 down the drain.

    Plus, we’re the Bishop of Southwark. It’s what we do.

  9. Meg Robins Says:

    Wow what a collection of negative musings. I am proud to call myself a fan of the musicals having seen all of the offerings of the west end.
    Long it was yes, but so is the book and so it the film and I expected nothing less.
    Singing was good, songs were new so there were no familiar melodies as there are when you venture off to see some of the excuses for musicals like mamma mia, we will rock you etc.

    It was a brave venture and I enjoyed it. I thought that Darius was spot on as Rhett, very good and the night I went he owned the stage, you were drawn to him.

    The narration was intense but a quicker way of doing it than singing their way through all of Scarletts life. Perhaps if the narration had been set to music more in the way of the equally long Les Mis you may have enjoyed it more.

    To be honest perhaps you need a new hobby rather than whinging about the west end and “putting money down the drain” perhaps try something more constructive with your time and live in positiveville, it is a nicer happier place.

    To anyone considering GWTW, go and see it and make up your own mind.

    I saw “Gone With The Wind” last night and concur with what the majority of theatre-goers have said. My companion told me that there was much hilarity in the ladies’ toilet at the interval over the birth scene, but this was surely rivalled by Melanie’s deathbed scene in the second half where the near-departed launches into a song! The cast race through the epic at such a breakneck pace that they must be as exhausted as the audience. The set is uninspiring which is a major flaw (a West End musical has to be visually spectacular if nothing else). The lyrics were banal, trite and predictable while the music, even by West End standards, was appallingly unmemorable. I actually found myself humming the music from the film on the way out, not the theatre score! Can no one write a classic musical anymore? Compare this drivel to Oklahoma, Porgy and Bess and West Side Story – music to die for. And yet, despite the many flaws, I found myself quietly appreciative of Darius, the male lead. I had no knowledge of the singer before the show, never having watched Pop Idol, but I thought he acquitted himself brilliantly. He had presence and a satisfyingly deep voice when speaking and singing. He handled the emotional scenes well, and he even looked quite like Gable. In short, Darius was THE reason for seeing the show.

  11. Teresa Says:

    We saw the show on 19th April, yes the show was long but what else do you expect from a long book & film. If you cut it your bound to miss out on the origanal story. When Darius first appeared leaning on the wall in a black suit, hair slicked down & a cigar in his mouth, he took my breath away, he was so like Clark Gable, he laughed like him too, that deep laugh that he did. I got choked up when Bonnie Blue Butler died, he acted it so well. I wanted to clap when he carried her off (the stage) but Scarlett started singing & the opportunity wasn’t there to do so. The songs of course are new to the ears but three in particular were lovely to me, Scarletts GWTW, the slaves sang beautifully & Rhet singing to Bonnie. I’m sure given time (if it’s allowed to get by after the horrible comments from the Wingers) that the music will catch on just like all the other shows. Please keep Darius & Jill, well, all of them Mammy was lovely too as most of the crew. As an avid fan of the film & book it was great having the oppertunity to see it in a new light.

  12. Teresa Says:

    I forgot to say,…. there was one thing I was expecting & that was the main ‘Tara’ theme tune, it didn’t get played, is this to do with copy rights? The story was copied so why not that wonderful music.

  13. JOHN J POWERS Says:

    No one seems to remember that GWTW was not as great a film as its reputation suggests; movies such as CITIZEN KANE and even THE WIZARD OF OZ, filmed around the same time, were much better. It was the bold MGM colour and length,and the nice contrast of Vivien Leigh’s sympathetic portrait of the vain Scarlett with Clark Gable’s irreverent and amusing Rhett Butler, and Max Steiner’s lush music, that made the film what it was. Take all that out and you have a very bleak prospect indeed. Mitchell’s wildly overrated novel doesn’t deserve resurrection, especially as a musical!

  14. Gelan Swift Says:

    I am so happy that this musical seems bound to flop, and even more happy that I was once rejected by Trevor Nunn. I may never get my musical “A song for Europe” on the West End stage, but one hundred percent of the people who have read the script and listened to the songs have deemed it beautiful. The moral of this story is “Big bucks, big ego’s and big names make great musicals…talent has nothing to do with it!

  15. lin Says:

    what a thing to say , with that type of attitude doubt your musical will ever be heard!

  16. Mark Says:

    Overrated? What nonsense–GWTW is much better than KANE or OZ as a story-especially as it is so relevant for today. Power and arrogance lead to wars and adapting to a change in life requires character. We are living that today. Scarlett and her chasing after someone who doesn’t love her is also an evergreen and identifiable adult topic. In the end, she and Dorothy are mirrors–her scarecrow is Rhett with his intellgence and brain, her Tin Man is Melanie with her heart and survival of the soul–and her Cowardly Lion is Ashley who is afraid to face the real world. And in the end, we all just want the security of the place we call home–GWTW explores these themes in a way that has people coming back even still. And Scarlett, like Kane loses her soul to gain the world–her difference lies in having human hope.
    But I also conclude there is no need for a musical–this story has been done perfectly and needs no more said.

  17. lin Says:

    fantastic show perfect go see for your self we loved it , all fine would even go again moving and well done to you all .

  18. jen Says:

    Loved it, and will be going again, I cannot beleive this is the show everyone was talking about.

  19. Rebecca Says:

    Saw it Thursday and my impressions were as follows.

    1. It’s a bad idea to do a musical version of GWTW (unless you’re either planning to send it up or else willing to look at it from an entirely different perspective). It is so of it’s time (politically and artistically) that to see it in 2008 makes one wince.

    2. Bland, boring, endless, similar-sounding ballad after ballad; most of which were sung by an entirely charisma-free leading lady.

    3. Uninspired staging.

    4. Wrong theatre. An epic story needs grander surroundings.

    5. Bad idea to do musical of GWTW.

    6. So much of the evening was given over to exposition that I could have saved my £60 and just had my 11 year old daughter read me the damn book.

    7. The only truly stirring moments occurred when the actors playing Mammy, Prissy, Pork et al started singing.

    8. Judging by the number of empty seats, I sense that this show isn’t going to run and run. In fact the only running done on Thursday evening was done by the herds of tube travellers stampeding for the exits (at 11:06pm) as the cast gave their bows (does that count as a standing ovation?)

    9. Bad. Idea.

  20. Melanie Says:

    Can we not all just accept that tastes vary and that for any play, musical, film, book etc there will be some who love it and some who hate it? Personally I love GWTW film version, book and now musical. I saw the latter last Monday and thoroughly enjoyed the show. It did have a small lull during the second half with too many short songs crammed together but overall I thought it was well acted, well scripted and the song of the slaves was simply breathtaking (I’ve been searching the web to download it to no avail!). I also thought Darius was fabulous especially the scenes with Bonnie. To anyone thinking of seeing GWTW on stage I advise you to go with an open mind and just be entertained. Isn’t that what theatre is for?

  21. Caroline Says:

    I decided to take my friend to this show as a treat and knowing that she likes the movie and has read the book. I on the other hand, hate the movie and cannot stand the character of Scarlett but I thought I would be able to stomach the musical version. Honestly, how bad could it be? Well, beyond bad, way beyond! I hated it with an absolute passion. The minute Scarlett opened her mouth I wanted to strangle her but I kept quiet (apart from a few muffled expletives) while she delivered her dialogue with an incredibly nasal, twanging accent. The first ten minutes of this production seemed like the longest, most excruciating ten minutes of my life and it took all of my willpower to stay seated but I knew I had to give it a chance, for the sake of my friend. Everything was very rushed, the songs were bland and don’t even get me started on the set and the costumes! I knew that I needed to leave when I felt the desperate need to start heckling the cast. On the plus side (yep, there is one), I actually thought that Darius looked the part and his own natural arrogance and cockiness helped in his attempt at ‘acting’. Needless to say, we beat a hasty retreat at the intermission and headed for the nearest pub where a good couple of gins were quickly gulped to numb the memory of the horror we had just witnessed.

  22. Marcus Says:

    Just saw the musical and thought it was amazing…the way they put the story to the stage was great (script and all that) and I actually enjoyed all the narrating. And oh my god at that Rhett Butler! Terrific! Maybe I don’t demand a great deal of a musical or whatever but I had an amazing evening and would def go see it again!

  23. […] turkeys on the table at Thanksgiving, thank you very much. It did provide the opportunity for some truly spectacular blogging, but, yet again, if I’m looking to strip the paint off of the walls, I’d rather go to […]

  24. simon marlborough Says:

    My wife told me she had booked tickets to see this show and not having heard much about it I checked some reviews on the internet all of which without exception left me almost dreading sitting through three and a quarter hours of a bad musical about to close in a weeks time .
    And yet ….. I have to say we both enjoyed it . Of course the producers and creators of the show had an impossible task trying to stage something which could come close to portraying the epic novel , but what they achieved was to our minds and I must say to a lot of the audience in a nearly full theatre was a wonderful and yes ,spectacular show …..and the setting fire to the town of Atlanta towards the end of the first act was very dramatic and believable.
    Without exception the singing was of a very high standard and the accents particularly that of Darius very convincing .
    The music was also quite moving and beautiful in places , one song in particular “Desperate Times ” I think was the title had shades of a Lloyd Webber in it and whilst its true to say there was no song with the force of a “Phantom or Les Mis there was certainly no time when you were left wishing it would end . Yes, it was rushed as I suppose it had to be and maybe the producers should have realized this was a type of show that was almost bound to fail, the idea of a title like “Gone with the Wind “..a musical does itself set itself up for ridicule.
    Notwithstanding this we and those who we spoke to or overheard talking about it as we left the Theatre all thought it was a thoroughly great evenings entertainment

  25. tracy neillie Says:

    I went to see this musical tonight & i thought it was very good
    I cannot understand why it will be closing only after 2 months.
    I have seen far worse then this. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    The singing was excellent & so was Darius.
    who ever gave this show bad publicity needs a kick up the backside, give it a chance, but now it is to late. This show needs good feedback & maybe it will stay a little longer.
    So you lot out there who have whinged about this show should feel really bad, i hope that oneday you will all get slated like you slated this show.
