Editorial Reviews

Hailed by the Associated Press as 'a jewel of a musical with a fantastic cast,' and by The Wall Street Journal as 'the most important new musical to come to New York since The Light in the Piazza,' A MINISTER S WIFE furthers the relationship between PS Classics and acclaimed composer Joshua Schmidt, whose score to Adding Machine: The Musical remains one of the most critically lauded albums in the PS Classics library. Based on a 1898 version of George Bernard Shaw's Candida (Shaw revised the work in 1930), and conceived and directed by Michael Halberstam, A MINISTER S WIFE explores the fires burning beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary marriage; the Revered James Morell and his wife, Candida, are happily married -- or at least they think -- until a romantic young poet, Marchbanks, enters their life. Featuring music by Schmidt, lyrics by Jan Levy Tranen and a book by Austin Pendleton, A MINISTER'S WIFE stars Tony Award-nominees Marc Kudisch and Bobby Steggert, plus Kate Fry, Liz Baltes and Drew Gehling. Of the recent Lincoln Center Theater production, critic Terry Teachout exclaimed 'I long to see it again -- and again!' Now customers can enjoyed repeated hearings of this rich, romantic and daring new score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your emotions will soar! September 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Breathtaking! Composer Joshua Schmidt has created a multi-layered musical world wherein Shaw's characters come to life. The cast is terrific and the score is played to perfection. A MINISTER'S WIFE on CD sounds as beautiful as it did at Lincoln Center in New York!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Joshua Schmidt! October 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Schmidt is a marvelous new voice in the theater. This is a gorgeous score - beautiful performed and recorded. Very different from the equally compelling Adding Machine: A Musical. Keep your eye on this guy - he's going far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this show, and the recording does it justice December 25, 2011
By Mataro
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Smart, sophisticated, souldful, songful and sung well. At last, a new musical that doesn't rely on the same old Broadway cliches. I was rapt during its performance at Lincoln Center last summer and am pleased that this recording catches the show's intimacy and nuances. How could anyone hate this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! September 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I loved it! Not only is the music haunting and the lyrics Shavian, but the dialog really delivers the story of this unique romantic triangle--It would be a great addition to anyone's musical theater collection!

Well I have listened to this CD a couple times, find it overly wordy, and uneasy to follow unless you sit with the lyrics in the booklet on your lap (not easy to do in a car). Read more
