Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A typical Hal Leonard publication, this contains Patrick Holland's (?) arrangements of all of the most important songs of the Broadway musical La Cage Aux Folles (not the Robin Williams film or the French original). From the songs on the original Broadway cast recording, only "Cocktail Counterpoint" is missing. Composer/lyricist Jerry Herman is perhaps more well-known, at least to older audiences, as the composer of Mame; these songs are rather in that same vein.
The keys of the pieces here are not always identical to those of the musical--the opening number "We Are What We Are", for example, begins in B major in the musical but is given in C major here. Surely the transposition is for ease of performance, but anyone looking to this to learn the show should be forewarned. The arrangements are not overly simplified and are a good representation for piano of the orchestral score. Chord symbols and guitar tablature are also included.
Songs included are "We Are What We Are", "A Little More Mascara", "With You On My Arm", "Song On The Sand", "La Cage Aux Folles", "I Am What I Am", "Masculinity", "Look Over There", and "The Best of Times".
About the songs themselves; the showstopper "I Am What I Am" has become a gay anthem of affirmation and is a gorgeous song with an important message regardless of one's sexual orientation. "La Cage Aux Folles", "Masculinity", and "We Are What We Are" are quite witty. "A Little More Mascara" is by turns poignant and funny. "Look Over There" and "Song on the Sand" are unconventional love songs, sentimental in a unique way. "The Best of Times" calls us to live and love for today, in a way reminiscent of Candide.

Good printing on vocal score. Everything that I expected from a printed vocal score.
I have no complaints.
