いのうえさんのトミー

1年前に、厚生年金でブロードウェイからの来日版を見た。
会場のしょぼさと、客層のミスマッチと、お話の荒唐無稽さに「駄目だこりゃ」だったが、歌と曲と演奏と歌い手はとても良かった。「see me feel me touch me hear me」は、音楽や歌詞を覚えられない私がリピート出来るほどのシンプルな名曲だと思う。

そして1年後のトミー。作品の元となっているアルバムを愛する新感線のいのうえさんが、満を持して演出、と聞けば、期待します。中川くんの歌唱力にも定評があるし。

結論から言えば、物語の展開を映像に頼った演出は絵柄からしてディズニーランド。つられて、ダンスもディズニーランド。
衣装は50~70年代のアメリカンライフを象徴したのか、趣味の悪い大味テイスト。
肝心の演奏、歌唱は・・・・ミキシング・音響の悪さでうるささしか感じない。悲しい。中川君の声の高さが生かされるミキシングができなかった。
そして・・・なんで和訳しちゃったのかなあ・・・というため息。日本人が英語で歌う違和感をとるか、英語が載っていた音楽に日本語の台詞をのせる違和感をとるか・・・。難しいのは分かる。結局、新感線や宝塚やジャニーズ系がやっているように、歌も含めたオリジナルミュージカルをつくるのが気持ちいいのか。日本には素敵な歌がたくさんあるのだから。

音楽が感動を呼ばなかったものの、皮肉にも、物語の奥行きは感じ取れた。トミーは暴力と個人主義で荒廃したアメリカ社会によって傷ついた心そのものだし、それをシューアップする興行界や宗教原理派にはしる大衆の乱暴な力、最後はともに前を向いて救われてゆこうというアメリカの楽天主義。去年の本場の作品よりもよほどメッセージとしてはわかった。が、だけどそれが今さら何かなぁ?

去年は、音楽に感動しつつ、舞台としてはしょぼくて悲しかった。
今年は、作品の中に流れる気持ちはわかったけれど、歌にも音楽にもダンスにも魅入るところがなかった。

舞台中、観客席は静かだった。ラストシーンでも拍手がなんだか小さくて、私が少数派ではなかったなと感じた。しかし、カテコは3回。3回目には立っている人も多かった。感動の渦という雰囲気よりも視聴者参加イベントみたいなスタンディング風景だった。

期待があっただけに、残念だった。
楽しみ方はいろいろだから、3回のカテコはそれはそれで良いけれど、観客に育てる力がないと、ぬるいままOKになってしまう。
本気で舞台をやってゆきたい人間には、むしろ今のカテコバブルはマイナスなのではないだろうか。
