Customer Reviews

Perfectly Lovely

This early Sondheim/late Rodgers score is on the whole quite pleasant in spite of the disasterous relationship between the two giants. Elizabeth Allen is a fine singer and actress but unfortunately forgotten among the Broadway leading ladies of the past. Take a listen to "Someone Woke Up", "What Do We Do, We Fly", "Someone Like You" and "Moon In My Window". Nice, little musical theater gems.

Very underrated but lovely

This show, which is based on Arthur Laurents' The Time of the Cickoo (play) and Summertime (movie with Katherine Hepburn), has truly lovely music; not on a plane with Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, or Carousel, but lovely nonetheless. And it has the added bonus of lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (their only teaming). This was the first show Rogers wrote after the death of Oscar Hammerstein, who was Sondheim's mentor. Sergio Francho turns in a beautifully sung performance and "Bargaining" is a tour de force. Elizabeth Allen is charming. And any show that has Madeleine Sherwood (Mother Superior from The Flying Nun) and Stuart Damon (Allen Quartermain from General Hospital) in supporting roles is okay by me.

not very good

Even with lyrics by Soundheim and a score by Richard Rodgers, the soundtrack of this show isn't very good for two reasons: the first is that there's no passion. In almost everything else Soundheim and Rodgers wrote, (by themselves - Do I Hear A Waltz was their only collaboration.) you could feel the passion. In this one, there are some careless mistakes that they obviously didn't care about enough to fix. The second is one that I read about in a commentary Soundheim wrote about the show. He found out that Hammerstien was the experimenter of the Hammerstien-Rodgers revolution: that being said, the revolution was essentially Hammerstien's. Rodgers had no idea how to tell a story through song, so for most of the songs, the lyrics had to come first. More importantly, once Rodgers set something, it was set in stone. This resulted in many boring and repetitive tunes, like What Do We Do We Fly, No Understand, and in particular, Bargaining. (Not all of the score is like this - Someone Woke Up is one of the best songs Rodgers has ever written). I'm not blaming Rodgers for all of this, I just haven't heard Rodgers' side of the story. I'm sure that he had similar complaints about Soundheim.
