Fabulous!
19 September 2003 | by robert-peeblesSee all my reviews

I first saw this in the mid '80s when I was living in London. Fortunately I taped it so I was able to see it again several times over the course of a few years. It was an absolutely fabulous production.

Sadly I lost possession of the tape in the late '80s and haven't been able to find a copy of it since. It is a true masterpiece and I will be thrilled if it is ever released on video or DVD.
