Trivia

Because the all-star cast was largely committed to other projects and the rehearsal time for the concert was limited to several days, the staging of the nearly ten minute-long showstopper "Side By Side By Side" was taught individually to each of the eleven performers wherever he or she happened to be working. The number wasn't run as an ensemble piece until the day of the concert, and director Lonny Price was astonished to see it fall into place with only minimal tweaking needed. See more »

Good, but;;;
5 July 2013 | by fubared1See all my reviews

Unfortunately this musical stills suffers from the fact that the 'book' by George Furth (and little has been changed) is still quite weak. Considering both Sondheim and Furth are gay, the men's parts are incredibly weak, and the situations are clichéd. The performances likewise are the best by the women with the men pretty much taking up space in the background. As to Harris, well, his acting is decent enough, but his voice is rather thin for the material...and he hits a few 'clinkers'. Where is Dean Jones when you need him? Sondheim writes difficult stuff for the average Broadway singer, and 99% of the classical singers can't act, so at best the result is unsatisfactory...like the film version of 'Sweeney Todd'. By the way I did play David myself a long time ago, and I disliked the show then (the book mainly). I've done many musicals, and this is the one I remember with the least affection. I've often thought it might be interesting to do a modern interpretation with all gay couples...and not so incredibly 'white'. The leading character is obviously a model for a '70's gay man.
