Movie Reviews

Fabulous theater
E Rice | western ny state | 05/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this cabaret type performance features five incredibly talented singers/dancers in multiple roles. there is no plot. songs from the 1880s and 1890s and dialogue frequently based are quotations are used to create a suggestion of american society in the gilded age and the experiences of emmigrants, blacks, politicians and performers.

if that sounds dull, think again. the talented cast creats more excitement than can be described, and the selection of songs is inspired--the emotions range from light-hearted to melancholy to bitter to optimistic. there is some quite good dancing, some very good physical and verbal comedy, and some clever set decoration.

if you like theater, you won't be disappointed in the way that the performance was filmed. there are no cutesy, i-such-a-clever-director shots. you could almost be sitting third row center.

the voices are extremely good--two are fantastic. the acting is first rate.

i saw this film version years ago before i got a video recorder. when i learned it was released on dvd, i ordered it immediately. it's even better than i remember. i couldn't recommend it more highly."

"Another show I missed on Broadway. Glad I was able to get it on DVD. A great addition to the Broadway collection!!"
