we went to see this musical last night, something i wouldn't have chosen to see, although i like cole porter songs (ella sings the cole porter songbook being a favourite). however, with a mother over from australia it's hard to say no, and thank goodness we didn't. it was an amazing show, just simply 10 out of 10, and something i urge anyone to go and see if they get the chance. the soundtrack is just as infectious and even without seeing the show you'll get the idea of where it's going, i agree that there is some 'filler' in the tracks, but it's a soundtrack from a stage show and they usually have them, not off putting by any means and in my opinion slightly better, as the filler filters out the chorus comes in with a bang to round off the track, and that's what i'll be listening while driving around picadilly circus. buy it! you won't be disappointed.
