In a 1979 production in the USA, Maggie was played by Ellen Greene.
The songs in the play were written by Nick Bicât (music) and Tony Bicât (lyrics) and were -
- Close To Me
- Passing Through
- Yeah Yeah Yeah
- Let's Have A Party
- Arthur's Song
- Last Orders
During the initial run at the Royal Court, Keith Moon turned up drunk at the stage door, joined Helen Mirren in her dressing room and told her how great the show was, and then tried to join the cast on stage before being stopped by the management.
Helen Mirren's interpretation of Maggie was based on Janis Joplin.
