Ok, I have to admit that, when I first heard of this, I expected something totally different. But this musical is better than what I'd expected. "You Can Always Count On Me" is great, and it certainly helps that Randy Graff is an amazing singer. "With Every Breath I Take" is really good, too, and so are the rest of the songs. Definitely worth it.
A great show with a great score
If you never saw City of Angels, you missed one of the funniest musical comedies (emphasis on COMEDY) in the past 30 years. A great score by Cy Coleman and David Zippel (acceptance speech at the Tonys: "I'm the only person here I've never heard of"). And Larry Gelbart, co-author of Forum and creator of the TV show MASH wrote this book. If you don't own this album, you are missing one of the great gems.
interesting to say the least
i was unfamiliar with this music let alone the play until my band director decided to make it our theme for our 2007 season. The Madison Scouts did a similar show and it was mind blowing, and with the additions my director has made to theme, funny, and the balled with every breath i take, this years show will win praise for our band. Hearing the source music and i wish we had had even more time to add more to the show. Curse halftime for only being 15 minutes long : P
