musicals: Dorothy Fields Forever
Dorothy Fields Forever
Based on the life and lyrics of Dorothy Fields, with the music of Jerome Kern, Jimmy McHugh, Arthur Schwartz, Sigmund Romberg and Cy Coleman. Theatre Museum 2001, Jermyn Street Theatre and King's Head Islington 2002. Choreography by Nick Winston. Musical arrangements by Nathan Martin. Directed David Kernan.
David Kernan and Eden Phillips' show is wonderfully performed at the King's Head, a venue that consistently pulls the proverbial rabbit from the hat on the musical front. For all the big budget, blockbuster shows in the West End, the King's Head seems so often to have the last word – "Dorothy Fields Forever" is no exception.
