Description

The original London cast recording of 'Ann Veronica', a musical based on the novel by H.G. Wells written/composed by David Croft and Cyril Ornadel, which is appearing here for the first time on CD. It includes detailed sleeve notes within a 12-page booklet.

H.G. Wells' classic 1909 novel 'Ann Veronica' was conceived for the musical stage by writer David Croft who with composer Cyril Ornadel began working on their adaptation in 1964. With music by Ornadel and lyrics by Croft, 'Ann Veronica' was first presented at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry in February 1969 followed by a week long run at Brighton's Theatre Royal prior to opening at London's Cambridge Theatre on April 17th 1969.

The London production of 'Ann Veronica' starred Mary Millar in the title role (replacing Dorothy Tutin who left the production following the Coventry try out) alongside popular British performers Hy Hazell, Arthur Lowe, Peter Reeves, Charles West, Ian Lavender and John Inman. Reaction from the London critics was decidedly mixed and the production subsequently closed after 44 performances. In March 1969, prior to the West End transfer, the 'Ann Veronica' cast album was recorded at London's CTS Studios in Belgravia.
