Must-have for ALW fans
12/26/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My two pence worth:CATS: not my favorite ALW musical but I found this version enjoyable for its superior cast. God's not fair--to some he gives both singing AND dancing talent. Loads of such double talent in this production.SUPERSTAR: interesting, updated production, fabulous voices. Shorn of its 60s/70s hippie trappings, it effectively re-engages you in the message of the lyrics.JOSEPH: at first I thought--Donny Osmond, UGH! YUCK!--but he's surprisingly appealing in this production.ROYAL ALBERT CELEBRATION: my only peeves (and reason for 4 instead of 5 stars) are 1) the total absence of Michael Crawford (Music of the Night is sung competently but not brilliantly by Antonio Banderas) and 2) a few too many titles from ALW's least successful work, Whistle Down the Wind."
No Documentation

"I am very disappointed in the packaging and the lack of documentation. They should have included the track listings and any documentation that has been included in the individual DVD packaging. I was especially disappointed that on the Royal Albert Hall performances where there is no listing of the songs, which show they are from and who is performing them. I was hoping to find a track listing here at Amazon but I have not found one yet."

"Cats - This DvD performance is a must have and that is all there is to it. A brilliant piece of work with very good bonus features. I am in awe of such raw and amazing talent that this DvD contained.

Joseph - This DvD perfomance was fine, actually more than that. Though the sound quality was not brilliant, but the over all performance was divine. Very very good!

Albert Hall - This DvD performance was good. Michael Ball was as ever out-standing as were the other members of this fine collection. HOWever I did feel that Michael Crawford was missing when it came to Phantom performances, even though Antonio Banderas did a respectable job, you will never be able to rid my love of Crawford's angelic yet haunting voice.

Jesus Christ - This DvD performance was laughable. Never in my life would I have imagined that the brilliant works of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice could be butchered in such a horrible way. After seeing Cats the DvD I had high hopes. I believe the phrase being "let down" does not even begin to describe the emotion caused by this sorry excuse of a musical.

Everything about it, was a piss ass poor job. Jesus was fine, not good, but able, Mary also was not too bad, and King Herod, despite his brillance as an actor was terrible in this. However I think the prize definately goes out to Judas. I do believe a tap-dancing mute giraffe would have performed much better than this over-acting, deaf-toned, poor excuse for a 'performer'. Not only do I feel that I should get my money back, I feel I should be able to be given money for enduring it as long as I did. I am honestly disgusted in how the editors didn't cut out majority of the musical. If they did so, they would have been left with possibly 15 - 20 minutes of film and it would have been passable.

I am literary in shock! I think I need to watch 'Cats' again and regain my love for theatre from scratch. If you love yourself and love musicals and especially Jesus Christ Superstar, I beg of you don't even consider looking twice at this absolute rubbish since it will burn your eyes right out of your head, leaving you in much disdain, like me, and confused as how talent has been replaced with used toilet paper.

Thank you."
Very poor sound quality for Joseph

"My kids (and I) like Joseph and Technicolor Dreamcoat. It's very visually stimulating/captivating (bright vivid bold colors), lots of dancing, lots of singing and catchy tunes. However we turn the sound up when the brothers are singing; Joseph and the narrator lady come across loud and clear - just the brothers seem too low/soft."
