Waltz Without End
Music by Frédérich Chopin adapted by Bernard Grün: Lyrics by Eric Maschwitz
Cambridge Theatre 1942 (181 perfs)
The show features the life and music of Chopin. Although the show ran for a respectable number of performances it was not universally accepted by the critics . James Agate in the Sunday Times said of the show:
"To alter a composer's rhythms, key and tempi is to murder that composer. To make voices sing words that are the acme of tawdry nonsense is to destroy an exquisite reputation."
