"Featuring songs from some 27 hit musicals and top artists (actually over 250 performers in all) from both sides of the Atlantic, this is two & a half hours of solid entertainment. The DVD includes rare scenes, with cameo singing appearances by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim doing a duet, and arguably what is the best performance one can hear of "Send in the Clowns" sung by Dame Judy Dench.
It is hard to believe that this show had only two performances & the DVD is based on the second night's Royal Gala Performance in front of Queen Elizabeth. The cast and numbers are so numerous it is worth while downloading the programme from the net, in order to identify the singers and the show!
One can watch this multiple times and find something new on each occasion."

"This should be on DVD!! Great concert featuring the best talent seen on Broadway. I missed Michael Crawford as the Phantom but Colm Wilkenson was certainly extremely effective in the role. Michael Ball is my favorite and I didn't see enough of him but Jonathan Pryce was so wonderful to see as The Engineer in Miss Saigon and as Henry Higgins. This is a gem and highly recommended for a 5 star enjoyment. Buying the VHS for Christmas presents for my Broadway loving friends! Too good not to share the memories!!!"
