Stephen Ward the Musical: entertaining and troubling

imageCongratulations to the cast and production team for Stephen Ward, the musical, now being performed at the Aldwych Theatre! Andrew Lloyd Webber composed the music, Richard Eyre directed it, and Stephen Mear choreographed it. Alexander Hanson authoritatively plays Ward, Charlotte Spencer Christine Keeler and Charlotte Blackledge Mandy Rice-Davies. A great evening’s entertainment, mingled rightly with a nagging sense of unfinished business. Stephen Ward is portrayed as the Profumo Affair’s biggest victim. Lloyd Webber said at the launch, “There are people who feel it was one of the greatest miscarriages of justice that ever happened.”
