On Staging "Boojum!"


Boojum! was originally performed as a stage musical a dozen or so times by State Opera of South Australia, at t he 1986 Adelaide Festival of Arts; the opening night was attended by Queen Elizabeth II. It was generally regarded as a success, but I was most unhappy with the treatment it received from the director, who rewrote large parts of the show, contrary to an agreement that this would not occur.
