I 2 Pari Vl-Wed., Aug. 27, 1980 COS AtlflClCS SIlmCB BROADWAY BUZZES OVER '42ND STREET' By CLARKE TAYLOR NEW YORK The theater community was still in a state of shock Tuesday after Monday night's tragic announcement that director-choreographer Gower Champion had died just hours before the opening performance of his musical "42nd Street." And the manner in which the announcement had been handled continued to be the topic of comments and questions. A cheering audience had risen to its feet after Monday's opening as producer David Merrick, marking his return to Broadway after a five-year absence, walked onto the stage of the Winter Garden Theater following the 10th curtain call of the evening. "You don't understand," said the customarily reclusive Merrick, trying to still the roar of the crowd. "This is a tragic moment for me; Gower Champion died today." The audience gasped, then fell silent, as Merrick turned to face a stunned cast. Co-star Jerry Orbach called for the curtain to come down. The audience, glamorous even for a Broadway opening, left the theater in shock and headed for a scheduled party at the Waldorf-Astoria which soon took the form of a wake. Rumors of Champion's illness had circulated throughout the theater community for weeks, ever since "42nd Street" opened at Washington's Kennedy Center in June. But neither the press, nor the public, nor even those closely connected to the show knew its severity. Even when the 61 -year-old director was admitted to Manhattan's Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center a few days ago, few apparently suspected his illness was terminal. And from all accounts his death around noon Monday, said to be caused by a rare cancer of the blood, remained a tight secret until Merrick's announcement. "42nd Street," like the 1933 Warner Bros, film starring Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell on which the musical is loosely based, is about show business a musical within a musical and barely a show business cliche is overlooked. Few of the celebrated theater folk in Monday night's audience Joshua Logan, Ethel Merman, Jule Styne, Bob Fosse, Ruth Gordon, Joan Fontaine, Neil Simon among them could therefore question the appropriateness of Champion's show going-on. But at the Waldorf later and on Tuesday morning, after most had recovered from the initial shock, there were serious questions being asked. Was Merrick right to expose the raw emotions of the entire cast before photographers and even TV cameras obviously planted in the aisle of the Winter Garden for an announcement? And why, with Champion's illness apparently well-known to his long-time colleague and producer, had Merrick mysteriously delayed the opening of the musical until the point when Champion could never know the reaction? Was all of this Merrick's ultimate publicity stunt? Clearly, the musical was a triumph for Champion, also returning to the Broadway stage after an absence of several years. Critical reactions Tuesday were mixed on other aspects of the show, but were unanimous in acclaim for Champion's work: "If anyone wonders why Gower Champion's death is a bitter loss for the American theater," wrote the New York Times' critic Tuesday morning, "I suggest he head immediately to the Winter Garden."
