Please someone stage this show!
on 27 February 2013
If you've been following Smash, you will know some of this music, but there's a lot of new stuff on this CD, and you really should get it. Even if you haven't been watching Smash, it's definitely worth buying. It's a sophisticated score from Shaiman and Wittman (Catch Me If You Can the musical, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory the musical, etc.,) The numbers are clever, witty and moving, and there's not a weak song in it. And it has an indisputably brilliant cast of singer/actors from the world of musical theatre, including Megan Hilty, Bernadette Peters, Christian Borle, Will Chase, Julian Ovenden, and Leslie Odom, Jr., not to mention the amazing Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing.
If you're a true musical theatre fan this should definitely be in your collection. I just hope the producers follow through with a stage production!
