When we finished Wedding Chimes, our good consultants advised us to change our register, if we wanted to keep living doing theatre. The audience want something different: They want musicals!
“We do musicals!” we answered. “We dance and sing in all our shows”. “Brave is ignorance” they replied. “You used the art of hiding, but you cannot sing or dance. If you really on to be “on the crest of the wave”, you must prepare a musical!
“Let’s do it!” If we played with the follies world, the opera, the cinema, the television, we made theatre in the markets, we created dancing marathons, premieres, speeches… We have done almost everything! Of course we can do a musical!!!
We just needed to find a show similar to our style. ¿Mary Poppins? ¿The Sound of Music? ¿My fair Lady? And then we said: “No! Why don’t we make something from home? We are from Sitges, why don’t we make a Rusiñol play? Why don’t we make Gente Bien, a well-known farce for all Catalan amateur groups?”
Let’s do it! Next step was to adapt the original play and visit our composer, Joan Vives, to write the music for it. The final result is an operetta! A musical has born! And the rest… let’s see. Will we come forward? Will we know how to do it? Who knows? But we will make theatre for sure!
