Review

Glasgow-born impresario Michael White, who died in 2016, was the man who brought Oh! Calcutta! and The Rocky Horror Show to the stage. He had been pushing theatrical and artistic boundaries since the early 1960s and when film-maker Gracie Otto met the septuagenarian at Cannes in 2010, she was so taken by his joie de vivre in the face of ill health and financial insecurity that she embarked upon this affectionate profile.
She chronicles how White’s collaborations with the likes of Yoko Ono, Merce Cunningham and the Beyond the Fringe satirists helped define the British arts scene of the 1960s.
