At last! A musical with real music!,
This review is from: A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder (Original Broadway Cast Recording) (MP3 Download)
As an Australian in New York, and a lover of G&S I have seen this show 4 times! It is not just G&S, there are homages to Noel Coward, Music Halls, and English Edwardian musicals. I feared it might be "too good for the average man", and was much relieved when it won the Tony as best musical. It is a natural for a London production, although I hope the Brits don't object to someone invading their turf. It has great wit, and a real melodic score. Thank heavens! They even get the English accents right: "I've decided to 'merry" you".
