The Roar of the Greasepaint The Smell of the Crowd. June 7-July2nd, Finborough Theatre

Another fringe theatre idea:  The Finborough Theatre near Earls Court.   The long overdue London premiere of the 1965 hit Broadway musical The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd, directed by acclaimed West End and RSC director Ian Judge.  The musical has a score packed with standards including A Wonderful Day Like Today, The Joker, Who Can I Turn To? ( a hit for Tony Bennett), The Beautiful Land and Feeling Good (a hit for Michael Bublé).  The story  presents the follies of the irrepressible Cocky and the imperious Sir as they play the comical Game of Life in this timely allegorical satire on the British class system. As they play, demonstrating how the working class can’t get ahead because of the rules set and constantly changed by the ruling classes, they encounter a dizzying array of bizarre and colourful characters who lead them to an unexpected conclusion…
