An important score- Lush and epic yet intimate
A very fine recording of a very fine show. Having seen this production at The Public last December, I couldn't wait for this recording. Who knows if GIANT will be produced in the future? And how nice to hear all of those luxurious instruments in the pit. There's a lot of fine material here performed by top notch actors? Kate Baldwin is simply incandescent as Leslie. A small quibble- if I remember correctly, there was a 3rd female character in the "Midnight Blues" scene who had a very powerful moment in which she talked about having cancer. It would have been nice to have that dialogue section of the book included. It made for a very powerful trio. Although it was dialogue, it was as musical as Vashti and Leslie's sections. I think this is LaChiusa's best score since "The Wild Party."
Giant is awesome!
UNSURPASSED TALENT, MUSICALITY AND SCORE. AS IF THE PLAY WAS UNFOLDING BEFORE YOU! FLAWLESS! LOVEIT! LOVE IT! LOVEIT! THANK YOU CAST AND SUPPORTS!
