They pitched their material to Granada TV , who commissioned a pilot episode. The episode was completed in early , but Grenada ultimately decided not to produce a full series as they feared that Awdry's stories were not then popular enough outside the UK to justify investing the time and money needed to make the series.
After withdrawing from the project, Lloyd Webber heard a recording of an American soul singer, Earl Jordan, who could sing three notes at once in the style of a steam whistle.
Lloyd Webber and Peter Reeves wrote a novelty pop song for Jordan called 'Engine of Love', which was released in In this version of the story, the Prince would hold a competition to decide which engine would pull the royal train across the United States of America.
Cinderella would be a steam engine and the ugly sisters would be a diesel engine and an electric engine. The project went into development hell , but Lloyd Webber remained interested in the idea of telling a story with trains.
Starlight Express proper began in early Lloyd Webber asked lyricist Richard Stilgoe to help him revive the idea as a concert for schools, in the style of Lloyd Webber's breakthrough musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Lloyd Webber and Stilgoe presented two songs the following summer at the Sydmonton Festival. Together, Lloyd Webber, Stilgoe and Nunn developed the story to include the idea of trains and coaches racing.
The choreographer Arlene Phillips was brought onboard along with the designer John Napier , who suggested staging the show on roller skates. In the first act of Starlight Express was workshopped by Nunn and Phillips with a cast that included the comedienne Tracey Ullman.
Based on workshop's success, Starlight Express went into full-scale production with an opening date of March Starlight Express has been revised many times since it was first produced.
Each professional production has differed from the last. These differences range from tweaks to lyrics, to the omission or inclusion of entire songs, characters and sub-plots.
Late at night, a child plays with his toy trains. He falls asleep and, in his dreams, the championship begins. The reigning champion — a Union Pacific diesel engine called Greaseball — enters with his gang.
They boast of diesel's supremacy Rolling Stock. A steam engine called Rusty enters. Greaseball mocks Rusty, who replies that he will win the championship, despite steam being obsolete compared to diesel Call Me Rusty.
Control intervenes and orders Rusty to collect the coaches from the marshalling yard. Rusty returns with the coaches: Control sends Rusty away to fetch the freight trucks as the coaches introduce themselves to the audience A Lotta Locomotion.
Rusty returns with the six cars that make up the freight train: They introduce themselves to the audience and argue with the coaches over whether it's preferable to carry people or cargo Freight.
Control declares entries for the championship open. Six trains arrive to challenge Greaseball: Entries are about to close when a surprise entry arrives: Electra, an electric train.
Greaseball and Electra square up to each other as the entrants form a parade to celebrate the race Coda of Freight.
Control announces the rules of the championship: There will be three eliminator heats. The winner of each heat will go into the final to decide the fastest train.
The engines start to pick their coaches. Electra's messenger, Purse, enters with an invitation from Electra.
Even though Electra is not her dream train either, she accepts, leaving Rusty alone. Greaseball and Dinah win comfortably, claiming a place in the final.
After the race, Dinah objects to Greaseball's cheating. In response he abandons her. Rusty agrees to race with Belle. They compete in the second eliminator heat against Electra and Pearl, and Weltschaft and Joule.
Electra and Pearl finish first, securing a place in the final. Rusty and Belle finish in last place. Already despondent after losing Pearl as his race partner, Rusty loses his last shreds of confidence.
Poppa decides to step up and prove that steam power is still relevant, despite everyone's misgivings, by racing himself in the third eliminator heat.
Only Dustin, the aggregate hopper, is willing to race with him. Rusty points out that the race is already full, but suddenly Control announces that the British train has been scrapped, leaving space for a late entry.
Poppa interprets this as a sign from the Starlight Express and enters the race. Poppa wins the race, securing a place in the final against Greaseball and Electra, but the effort exhausts him.
Now worn out, he begs Rusty to take his place. Rusty refuses at first, but then he notices Pearl with Electra and is jealous.
Greaseball and the other competitors mock him then leave. The trains debate whether Rusty should be allowed to take Poppa's place in the final, since he's already competed and lost, or whether the place should go instead to Bobo, who finished second in Poppa's heat The Rap.
They ultimately decide to let Rusty race. Control offers the engines the chance to change partners. Pearl abandons Electra and joins Greaseball, leaving Dinah feeling betrayed.
But instead she accepts an offer from Electra to replace Pearl at the final. When Electra expresses his surprise at C. Electra and Greaseball finish in a dead heat.
Control announces that there will be another race, with Electra and Greaseball going head-to-head to decide the winner. Rusty complains that he was cheated, but the marshals refuse to listen.
Pearl confronts Greaseball, but he warns her to say nothing, as the marshals would consider her complicit and punish her as well.
Rusty retreats to the freight yard, where he bumps into the Rockies. Right Place, Right Time. The Rockies leave Rusty alone. He appeals again to the mythical Starlight Express for help, and this time, it hears.
The Starlight Express appears in front of Rusty, reminding him that whatever strength he needs — the starlight — is within him already I Am The Starlight.
The Starlight Express disappears and Rusty finds himself back in the freight yard with Dustin, who says he just was just asleep, but felt the starlight's presence.
Rusty asks Dustin to race with him in the final. He accepts and they head off together. Moments before the race, Dinah, angry with the way Electra treats her, disconnects from him.
Electra quickly appeals to C. The trains gather to watch what they expect will be a head-to-head final between Greaseball and Pearl, and Electra and C.
Suddenly Rusty arrives with Dustin. The marshals allow him to enter the race. The race is fast and furious.
Greaseball struggles with an unwilling Pearl, and Electra uses all his power to disrupt his opponents. Electra zaps electricity at Greaseball, but misses and injures Pearl.
Greaseball, showing no concern, simply disconnects Pearl at full speed. Rusty diverts from the race course just in time to save her, but at the cost of falling into distant third place.
To avoid being disqualified for not having a coach, Greaseball starts to grapple with Electra over C. The fight degenerates into chaos and Greaseball, Electra and C.
But instead of celebrating he leaves immediately to find Pearl. Humiliated and furious, Electra leaves the race track, swearing never to return No Comeback.
Poppa demands that Greaseball and C. Away from the other engines, Pearl fears that she caused Rusty to lose the race. She realises that of all the trains she's raced with, only Rusty ever acted selflessly towards her Only He.
He tells Pearl that he won the race and confesses his love for her Only You. The other trains arrive. Rusty is a steam shunter engine ; His job on the railway is to move the rolling stock and assemble trains, but he is not designed for high speeds or long distances.
Rusty is kind and ambitious, but he is also naive and stubborn, which is apparent when Pearl rejects him and he refuses to race without her.
The freight trucks and coaches are fond of him, but don't believe he is capable of winning the race.
He has big ideas of who he is and who he wants to be, but he is left heart-broken when everyone, especially Pearl, ridicules him. In some productions, he is portrayed as a hopeless dreamer, far inferior to his more advanced competitors.
Other actors portray him as having the potential to become champion, but lacking the self-confidence. Subsequent productions portray him as a more optimistic, cheerful character, as shown in " Engine of Love " and " Crazy ".
Rusty is first seen leading the coaches onstage, where he is greeted by Greaseball and the Gang. They proceed to make fun of him, which leads him into " Call Me Rusty.
They urge him not to race, in the interest his own safety " A Lotta Locomotion " , despite Pearl having previously agreed to race with him.
Rusty appears again during " Freight ", when he leads the freight trucks onstage. The next time Rusty appears is during " Coda of Freight ", where he asserts that he is going to enter the race and win.
He then tries to convince the coaches of his abilities " Crazy " in hopes of getting a partner. Rusty once again offers himself as her partner, but she refuses, stating that he can't whistle like the engine in her dreams.
In the original West End production, Poppa eventually convinces Rusty to race with Belle in the second heat. Subsequent productions have Poppa racing with Dustin, and Rusty agreeing to take Poppa's place after he gets worn out.LondonApollo Victoria Theatre.
