I just got this the other day. Not super fantastic, but has it’s moments.
The showstopper is You Won’t Succeed on Broadway (Without Jews), which has the added incentive of giving David Hyde Pierce the chance to show off his training as a concert pianist. You have to love wordplay such as
The dreamy (and openly gay, unlike his co-stars) Christopher Sieber’s duet of The Song That Goes Like This with Sara Ramirez is a great send-up of overly serious Broadway lovesongs, but Sieber’s dead-on Colm Wilkinson impression makes the song.
“I’m Not Dead Yet” was cute but forgettable. I wish they’d included the song from the movie (“Sir Robin ran away… Sir Robin ran away… when danger reared its ugly head, Sir Robin tucked his tail and fled”) but they didn’t.
So those who’ve heard the cast recording (or if anybody has seen the show), would love to hear your views.
