It's all Colour and Light!,
This review is from: Sunday In The Park With George [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Right! First of all remember this is a very old filming of the show so be prepared for bits of wonky music and occasionaly poor images. Secondly remember this is a broadway Sondheim show so its very american and very difficult to get into unlike some of his more accesible shows however this is a beautiful show. The entire cast are very good especially Bernadette Peters Mandy Patinkin and Babara Bryne. The staging for its era is very clever and pretty. The songs are very hard to immediatly like but give them time (buy the CD first is my advice)The story has many messages and is well written.
So if you're prepared to give this beautiful musical time and to overlook its age related faults then get ready to Move On down to a rather plaesant experiance called Sunday in the Park with George.
