Irene musical (1973)

The first production was in 1919, with such composition of actors: B. Watson, E. Puck & G. Miller. It was directed by E. Royce; Vanderbilt Theatre hosted the show, where it staged for 675 histrionics. As of that time, this was the longest show of the musical on Broadway, which remained unbroken for 20 years. E. Day, which also played a part, has performed the title role in the musical in the West End, where the show was going for nearly 400 performances.

In 1923, it was a brief resurrection of the show on Broadway, and after, it gave nearly 20 national US tours and was filmed twice during 1920-1940th years: black and white, one of them was silent. After that, in the modern history of Hollywood, after fantastically successful resurrection of one of musicals of past years, in 1971 it was decided to revive this piece. But that was not a great success since show constantly has been chased by various failures. Someone from the main producers was ill and someone among the actors suddenly lost his voice and was articulated clumsily from the wings, which irritated the critics and audiences. Gower Champion partially saved the show, and the producers have even did such extraordinary trick – they sent reworked script to President Nixon, and his accolades of one greatly spurred the sale of tickets. So, in 1973, the show has been implemented and after 13 pre-shows, in Minskoff Theatre were given almost 600 main exhibitions. This version has won Tony awards, and included the cast: Carrie Fisher (the one who is Princess Leia Organa from Star Wars), R. Warrick, M. Bussert, P. Kelly, J. Sell & M. Markham.

In 1973, the show came to Australia, and in 1976 – in London, Adelphi Theatre, where it was during the long 974 hits, which allowed it to enter the top 100 longest musicals in London.
Release date: 1973
