Nothing can beat the original company or cast recording

I was rather disappointed by this production on Broadway. I was fortunate enough to see the original production, and it remains one of the highlights of my theatre-going life. I was really looking forward to this version, but there were a few things that marred the experience for me. The most jarring was Zeta-Jones. She is simply wrong for the role. She comes off extremely shrewish and classless, especially in You Must Meet My Wife (I thought she'd pull back for the recording but no such luck). Glynis Johns, the original Desiree, was the epitome of class and style, heartbreaking and funny at the same time. The overall direction was off also; Trevor Nunn directed with a heavy hand that turned a really funny and life-affirming show into a Night Music as written by Henrik Ibsen. The opening segment is painfully slow, everyone in Act I dressed in black and in shadows. The second act is, thankfully, somewhat better. The good: Alexander Hanson is terrific as Fredrik, and Angela Lansbury steals the show and rolls off with it in her wheelchair. She's a lesson in less is more; she is a treasure and the whole show (and recording) is worth it for her. It's nice having more music on this recording, but the lushness of the original orchestrations is sorely missed. A mixed effort at best.

WOW!!!!

Saw the show a few months ago and loved it. Love this music. Great buy!

Top notch performances!

I saw this just a week and a half ago in NYC and loved it. The cast is absolutely fabulous - it goes without saying that Angela Lansbury would be amazing and true to her roots, so is Catherine Zeta-Jones - but the entire cast was to die for. This soundtrack captures the essence of being in the theatre and I would recommend it to anyone.

Stephen Sondheim was the most highly regarded composer/lyricist for the musical theater in his generation. Having his first musical produced on Broadway in 1957 and his 14th in 1994, he straddled two eras. The broadly popular musical theater of his early years gradually became a more insular art form, addressing a smaller, more dedicated, more serious audience. This jibed perfectly with the composer's own tendencies. In a sense, he was to the world of show tunes what Bob Dylan was to that of pop...
