To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've seen this on stage and it was very enjoyable. Really all it lacks is a well known, or hit, song but the music is very pleasing and some tracks are quite ingenius. One, Sounds While Shopping, merges snatches of conversation with amusing results and another A Trip to the Library raises the mundane to completely new heights. There is even a track merging love and vanilla ice-cream. A good synopsis with the disk, allows you to follow the story and the entire cd is an unexpected treat for lovers of musicals. If you've still any doubts, the fact that the female lead is played by Ruthie Henshall should allay these.
I saw this show in the West End back in the 90s and love the catchy songs. Not many people have heard of this musical but I really recommended it. It deserves more recognition than it gets. Some of the songs, such as 'Vanilla Ice Cream', are hilarious if you listen to the lyrics.
My very favorite of all the shows written by this team, including "Fiddler on the Roof." And this is the second of three albums of this musical, including the original with Cook, Massey, & Cassidy, plus the more recent revival on Broadway with Boyd Gaines. Ruthie Henshalll shines, as always. Does her own version, rather than copy Cook. A must have album, along with the two others.
