Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuraday, February THE LETHIRIOQE HERALD-7 Critics pan stage return of actress MONTREAL The advance word on Eux, Genevieve Bujold's chosen vehicle for a return to the stage after an absence of nine years, was- "Wordy and a little bit like Who's Afraid of Virginia In an interview a week before Eux opened, Miss Bujold suggested she was returning to the stage because she feels her career, firmly tied to films since 1965, is in mid-stream But if she intends to get ashore at some point, it will have to be in a less leaky ve- hicle than the play she pre- miered in Montreal Tuesday night Neither Miss Bujold's pres- ence nor the powerful acting of Quebecois Jacques Godm were enough to rescue the play Some critics said most of the blame lies in the script by Eduardo Manet, a Cuban-born French playwright The rest lies in the direction by Paul Buissonneau. Eux means them, and the "them" of the title is a couple who are tearing themselves and each other apart in a desperate search for love and some meaning to their existence While Manet shows flashes of power in his concepts ana presentation, the flashes are persistently extinguished by buckets of words, torrents of yelling and screaming, and a drizzle of confusion. Director Buissonneau pro- vides the final hosing down by sending Miss Bujold scurrying off-stage for a costume and-or wig change every time she gets interesting Shows closed LONDON Brit- ain's industrial troubles have sent boxoffice receipts at Lon- don theatres plummeting and brought the curtain down per- manently on several shows Audiences are staying away because of fears they might be stranded by a train engineers' dispute, causing the cancella- tion of late-night trains.

National tours before a Broadway opening are becoming standard among legitimate producers for these reasons and as an aid to making the theatrical "road" again a viable institution. The rationale behind the decision to tour with "A Community Of Two" was given by its young looking producer, Marshall Young, who, with Chodorov and Miss Colbert, are the show's financial principals. "The reason is 80 per cent economic." he declared during an interview in Chodorov's hotel suite before the performance. "For economic reasons. Broadway is becoming just another stop on the road. Don't misunderstand me If you have a sure hit and who ever had a sure hit7 Broadway is still where you can make it big. But with a light play, or one you suspect might not get rave reviews, Broadway can be disaster. Yon put two or three years work and a hundred thousand dollars into a play and it opens on Thursday and closes on Saturday. It's impossible.'" The alternative, he said, was to take the show on tour. where it can earn back its capitalization and have a chance ?o shake aawn Young orif "A Community Of a too art play with a tast of seven, had been budgeted at but the actual production cost was kept to 172.000. The tour, before halting in June for a summer hiatus and probably some major re writing before the Broadway opening, will take the show to such cities as Boston (where it already has an advance of Philadelphia, Los Angeles, St Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland. Toronto and Chodorov's comedy is about a recently divorced woman who is locked out of her apartment and is offered a hospitable bed by her handsome neighbor. Canada Council paying tab for regional theatre tour By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) The Can- ada Council touring office is picking up unstated costs for a series of regional theatre pro- ductions touring Canada this year. A spokesman said the council has approved a series of deals in principle and will allocate costs later One arrangement is a co-op- erative venture by the Shaw Festival Theatre in Niagara- on-the-Lake, Ont., and Neptune Theatre in Halifax. The Shaw Festival will pro- duce George Bernard Shaw's The Devil's Disciple for its May-to-August season this year, but under auspices of the touring office it will tour the Atlantic provinces first. The co-operative venture is to have Shaw Festival do the artistic production while Neptune Theatre builds the theatre sets, thus saving freight haulage to the Maritimes from Niagara. It will open in Halifax April 4 and tour Charlottetown, St. John's, Nfld., and Frederictpn coming back to Belleville and Kingston, Ont., early in May. The spokesman said the touring office is also picking up part of the tab for an exchange of productions between the Playhouse Theatre of Fredericton and Bastion Theatre of Victoria. SETS STAY In this case, duplicate sets are being built in Fredericton and Victoria, and only the casts and costumes will move across the country The New Brunswick theatre group now is touring the prov- ince with Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, and will close in Fredericton Feb. 19.
