I can not attempt to begin writting about this album. It is reminds me of what I forgot music could accomplish... "Show Me the World" is breath taking. I simply love this album, it combines standards with rare matterial, and frankly I can't say enough. Mandy and Bernadette Peters together on a few tracks- who could ask for anything more? The orchestations(sp) are mystical and magical, and...and... what can I say? You like Mandy? You love this album. The music can be soft and gentle and emtional, or fast paced and occsionaly silly. If you like muscials, I mean really *good* musicals, and appreciate talent, buy this album. If you do not like it, I will be surprised. Truely.

...dress casual, that is. At his concerts, Mandy lets nothing distract from the music--no fancy stage costume & set--just his comfortable old black t-shirt, slacks, & sneakers, a hands-free microphone, stool, piano, & accompanist on a bare stage. Dress Casual started out as a Broadway show, & I just happened to be in NYC when it was playing. Did I go see it? Nope--I had no idea who Mandy Patinkin was then. If I had, I wouldn't have been on line for 7 hours to get standby tickets for Phantom of the Opera! Mandy's 2d album finds him in top form, & highlights include previously unrecorded songs from Stephen Sondheim's little-known musical, Evening Primrose. Mandy is joined by fellow Broadway baby, Bernadette Peters, in some stirring duets. Peters & Patinkin are well-matched & exciting to listen to in this tale of a poet who takes refuge from the world in a department store & the mannequin come to life that he falls in love with. Other standout numbers include the nostalgic & lushly orchestrated "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe," (introduced by Judy Garland in the "The Harvey Girls"). Mandy, ya done Judy proud! Singing on all 3 tracks, Mandy races through "Triplets," the novelty number from "The Bandwagon," at about triple the original tempo--whew! He also pays tribute to the original "Music Man," Robert Preston, in "Trouble in River City." And there's always Sondheim & then, some more Sondheim on Mandy's albums. If ever there was a singer's composer...Read more ›

From the near-lullaby "Doodle-doo-doo" to the rollicking "Trouble in River City" performed with the Harlem Boys Choir, "Dress Casual" is a wonderful blend of music - I've never owned an album I've played more. The songs chase tails around in my head for hours after I've turned off my stereo. Mandy Patinkin has the most soothing voice of any singer alive, and yet has a power and beauty to rival any opera star. "Dress Casual" is like a full-body massage that can, quite literally, go on forever.

Although every Mandy Patinkin CD is a joy, this one has the music I return to most frequently. There are so many cuts that explode in my face - Tschaikowsky is one. (How does he remember...?). I immediately feel the kind of excitement one usually experiences only during a live performance. Then there are the tender and equally passionate numbers such as Mr. Arthur's Place or the Evening Primrose medley which make me feel safe and calm, yet curious, wondering what will happen emotionally the next time I play this fabulous CD.

Mandy is an acquired taste, and I can't always get into his recordings. But this one works for me. And I especially love the suite of songs from Sondheim's "Evening Primrose," which he performs with Bernadette Peters. It was the first time they had all been recorded together since the show had aired in 1966. It is a spectacular piece, and this recording of it is top-notch. Of course, the piece couldn't have been in better hands: the orchestrations are by Michael Starobin, who had just done the wonderful orchestrations for Sondheim/Mandy/Bernadette in "Sunday in the Park with George" and the orchestra was conducted by Paul Gemignani, who had conducted "Sunday" as well as every Sondheim show prior to that going back to "Pacific Overtures." So it was literally like old home week for the group. There have been a couple more recent complete recordings, one of which is pretty good ("The Frogs/Evening Primrose") and one of which is not very good at all ("Sondheim at the Movies"). But this is the one to own. Exciting, funny, poignant and beautiful.

As for the rest of the cd, Mandy is fine form here with a delightful selection of tunes. And Gemignani keeps the orchestra tight and the playing exciting all the way through the disc.

Wish he had DVD's of his concerts. He is so animated, and gives 100% of himself in every performance, whether singing or acting. Look forward to going to one of his concerts!!!! Has an incredible voice range, even into the Operatic. Phenominal singer. Great songs! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
