There are hummable songs, and intriguing lyrics.

Scenes One through Six began with the sexual predator looking strictly for pleasure, with the Young Wife in Scene Five finding love encroaching on the pleasure.
Jason D. Witte
It's a great recording, a great score, and a great little puzzle (read the stage directions in the libretto).

Upon a first (and, indeed, a second and even third) listening, I found myself strangely unaffected by LaChiusa's score, with the exception of 'Tom' and 'Mistress of the Senator'. However, I persisted in not giving up in disappointment, and "Hello Again" gradually yielded its subtle brilliance.
In order to fully appreciate what LaChiusa accomplishes, I think it is necessary to keep in mind that "Hello Again" is an exploration of sexual conquest. In Scenes One through Four, there seems to be little consequence for either the predator or the prey; the predator attains what he or she was after, and the prey has lost his or her innocense and naivety when it comes to sexual intercourse. Indeed, there is the undercurrent of a playfullness to the eroticism.
But there is an interesting shift in Scene Five. The Young Wife is engaging in sexual intercourse with the Husband, but is fantasizing about a total stranger that she had a brief dalliance with. Whereas in Scenes One through Four, the acts of intercourse were simply for the pleasure, the feeling of love is added to the act.
Scene Six returns to the idea of sexual intercourse as being for pleasure alone, but it ends in disaster: the predator (The Husband) dies, while the prey (The Young Thing) escapes to live.
Scene Seven adds another twist. Scenes One through Six began with the sexual predator looking strictly for pleasure, with the Young Wife in Scene Five finding love encroaching on the pleasure. In Scene Seven, the Writer may be cruising in a gay bar, but he is looking for love, which becomes quite evident when he and the Young Thing end up together in bed. However, the Writer so idealized love and its connection with sexual intercourse that he is ultimately isatisfied.

This is arguably Michael John LaChiusa's finest musical, and the recording more than does the show justice. Characters come vividly to life in each song, and as the lyrics sharply point out what they think they want, the music subtley evokes their hidden desires. The opening sweet-yet-weary siren song of a prostitute grows into a hot and bothered jazz seduction by a jaded soldier, which in turn becomes the stacatto domination of a young college boy... And so on, until the circle is complete, and everyone says "Hello, again."
There is not a weak link in the wonderful ensemble cast, and the album has the unexpected bonus of featuring many stars before they were well-known. It would be almost impossible to get Donna Murphy, Carolee Carmello, Malcolm Gets, John Cameron Mitchell, Michele Pawk, John Dossett and Judy Blazer to do a show like this today, so it is doubly delightful to hear them together on this recording.
Even in 1994, Michael John LaChiusa was proving himself to be a rising star among theatrical composers. His music for this show aptly displays why he has amassed such a devoted following among theatre enthusiasts.

I couldn't wait to hear this album. I'd heard Michael John's songs on Audra McDonald's album, and I LOVE his contemporaries. (I think Adam Guettel is a genius.) After repeated listenings, however, the composition seemed meangingless, arbitrary, and unaffecting. "Tom" and "Mistress of the Senator" were the standouts, and Michael John can write a fantastic vamp, but I found his melodies bizarre.
Then I watched the show on video at the NY Public Library, and realized Mr. LaChiusa's brilliance as a dramatist. The show is amazing, and the author's collaboration with Graciela Daniele is seamless, thrilling, and meaningful.
The album may never work for me, when taken strictly on a musical level, because Michael John writes very specifically for character, time, and place. He's exactly what a musical theatre writer should be. When his songs are heard (and seen) in context, they're brilliant, but this doesn't necesarily come through on the cast album.
This year will be the test -- with his upcoming Broadway musicals MARIE CHRISTINE and THE WILD PARTY, hopefully his composition will be able to stand alone, and he'll still commit to character and storytelling.

It's not your typical broadway musical. There's no kicklines. There's no helicopters, barricades or giant chandeliers (thank God!) But there is honest human emotion. There are believable characters. There are hummable songs, and intriguing lyrics. Hello Again is based on "La Ronde" and while you may not think that that would be a great source for a musical... You'd be surprised!!! The musical takes you on a journey from the first notes to the last "Hello, Again" and it's wonderful.
The performances on the cd are very entertaining as well. Carolee Carmello, Michelle Pawk, Donna Murphy are all three women who are now major players in Broadway musical. (Donna Murphy won a tony, Carolee was nominated, and Michelle is a Drama Desk Nominee.) It also features Malcolm Gets from "Caroline in the City Fame" and John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch creator). It's a must-have and I reccomend it to everyone.

Being the fan of "new musicals" that I am, I picked this CD up on a whim, and now I can't stop playing it. For those who love rousing opening numbers, humable songs, or lots of tap dancing in their musicals, this is not the one for you. This is a "chamber piece" that examines sexual encounters through the decades. The score is nothing short of brilliant, and I can't understand why no one ever does this show. It's a great recording, a great score, and a great little puzzle (read the stage directions in the libretto). This is one "new musical" you want to own.
