Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Nevtmbtr I, _ THf lETHMIDGf HRAID 7 Canadian choreographer hears hravos and jeers LONDON (CP) Canadian choreographer Brian Macdo- nald woke up yesterday with the cheers and "bravos" of a packed first-night audience ringing in his cars to find Brit- ish critics far frbm enthusiastic about I and Albert, the new musical about Queen Victoria.

At least two critics made play with that famous phrase associated with are not amused." Several lam- basted the show, which covers 80 years of Victoria's reign, for lack of dramatic development, saying it relied on theatrical ef- fects. The Financial Times, though praising several aspects, said the show died with the death of Prince Albert and The Daily Telegraph felt it had aii been better done 40 years ago with Noel Coward's Cavalcade.

"I was so delighted with the audience's reception. It cer- tainly didn't look like a funeral then." UNTIL FEBRUARY But he added that the show is booked into February, and hopes it will catch on with the public. Macdonald, who spent an ex- hausting 11 weeks preparing the show, was disappointed thai greater recognition was no! given 1.6 Polly James, the tiny British Actress who gives a regal but movingly human per- formance as Victoria. It was Miss James's first big West End part since she star- red a few years ago in the mu- sical version of the Canadian children's classic, Anne ol Green Gables. Several critics praised her skilled portrayal ol Victoria's 60 years' span, but more space was given to Aus- tralian actor Lewis Fiander's dazzling Disraeli, enchanting the old Queen with a series of flashy conjuring tricks. An unusually stylish first- night audience included Dame Margot Fohteyn, a friend of Brian Macdonald's Swedish bal- lerina wife Annette Av Paul. Also in the stalls were Cana- dian poet Leonard Cohen, work- ing on a film in London, and Broadway singing star Carol Channing. Macdonald will spend another week in London to see the show settled down and then goes to Amsterdam for rehearsals with the Netherlands National Bal- let.

Singer losing voice LONDON Donny Osmond, a 14-year-old singing star who is the heart-throb of millions of little girls on both sides of the Atlantic, said here he is losing his treble voice. "I just can't reach the high notes any said Donny, who is in Britain on tour with the Osmond Brothers group. Said Donny: "I'm almost 15 now and my voice has gradu- ally teen getting deeppcr. Now it is a whole octave lower. "It has been getting harder and harder to reach those high notes and I don't think I can do it any more." Soviet dancer prefers Europe LONDON (AP) Natalia Makarova, the Soviet ballerina who defected to the West two years ago, announced here she plans to live in Europe. The 31-year-old ballerina flew into London's Heathrow Air port after living in the United States for two years and said: "I would really prefer to live oh this side of the Atlantic." Johon No. 1 entertainer LONDONt CP) As a person rte was no good, said comedian George Jessel, "but he was the greatest entertainer I've ever seen." No prizes for guessing the subject of Jessel's back-handed xibute Al Jolson, the Rus- sian-torn superstar who be- strode American show business 'or nearly 50 years and whose own egotistic claim to be the world's greatest entertainer was never challenged by his ri- vals, whatever they thought of him as a person. Jessel had perhaps a special cause for bitterness, having lost out to Jolson in 1927 for the starring role in the world's first talking picture, The Jazz Sing- er, after successfully creating jie part on stage. Nevertheless, le gives liis opinion in the first British biography of Al Jolson, published recently, that only ?rank Sinatra approached Jol- son's stature as an entertainer "hut he's 25 points below him." SPARKED SELL-OUT Publication of the biography, written by British journalist Mi- chael Freedland, sparked a sell-out Jolson season at Lon- don's National Mlm theatre. Britain, it turns out, is the centre of an International Al Jolson Society, whose members gather periodically from coun- tries as far apart as Canada and New Zealand to play rec- ords of the master's voice and re-run his faded films of the 1930s. Freedland's book, entitled Al Jolson and published here by W. H. Allen, is full of colorful memories of the cantor's son. Asa Yoelson, or less in the fashion portrayed in his biographical films ran away from home and synagogue to become undisputed king of Broadway and first voice of the movies. Written off as a has-been by the time of the Second World War, Jolson became the first U.S. entertainer to tour the bat- tlefronts and made a stunning post-war comeback hi the age of the bobhy soxers. At his death after a gruelling trip singing to U.S. troops in Korea, Uie lights of Broadway were turned off and traffic halted in Times Square.
