I had to hurry across the room to turn down the sound on this one, to say it's loud is an understatement. "I don't want to show off" is catchy but sadly the rest of the tunes don't do it for me. Maybe it works better visually.

Bought this for my daughter as she is taking part in the same show. It was useful for her and helped her to learn the songs.

A brilliant show and an excellent recording.

This recording of the Broadway cast gives a clear idea of the show itself, unlike other such recordings in which you have to follow the insert information to make sense of where the songs fit.

The music is a very clever pastiche of 1920s musicals, but with a much more sophisticated, contemporary edge than "The Boyfriend" ever had. Though the feel of the Twenties is there, the voices and the orchestrations are undoubtedly a product of modern musical theatre.

One of the highlights has to be "Show Off", the showstopper and sung with belting flair by Sutton Foster. She could never be mistaken for other than a 21st century performer and puts across the song with energy and suitable variety of style.

"I Am Aldolpho" and "Message From A Nightingale" highlight the comic vocal skills of Danny Burstein, singing in the latter with Beth Leavel as the eponymous lady who does a crashingly great performance in "As We Stumble Along".

This recording is huge fun and makes it seem such a shame that the show was not a big hit in the West End.

I chose the highest rating because it is exactly right. The sound quality is crisp and clear. Highly recommended to those who are working on this show.

Why this show closed early in London I shall never know. It's wonderful.

Also: check out Wayne Brady singing "Touch of my Hand" on YouTube. Another hilarious song by this very talented duo.
