"Sherry!" is great fun and a total delight. No, it is not quite a long neglected masterpiece, but it is a first rate score, given a wonderful rendition by the all star cast. Having seen (and adored) "Sherry!" when it played briefly on Broadway thirty-seven years ago, I am thrilled to finally have a recording of this score.
The story behind the CD is fascinating - the score was lost for many years after the show closed, and the trunk containing the complete score was found at the Library of Congress just a few years ago. More details are in the notes, written by James Lipton ("Inside the Actors Studio,") who wrote the book and lyrics to the show. Nathan Lane is perfect as Sheridan Whiteside; I don't think Carol Burnett would be right to play Lorraine on stage, and her singing voice isn't quite what it used to be, but she is still a delight to listen to and has a lot of fun with her numbers. Bernadette Peters delivers on two nice ballads - her "Maybe It's Time for Me" is particularly nice. After listening to the CD several times, the quality of the tuneful score is really growing on me, and it is more ambitious and accomplished than I initially would have given it credit for. I've always known that the title song is terrific. In addition, there's a wonderful and funny showstopper for Burnett, "Putty in Your Hands," complete with a tap dance segment, a lovely, sweet "Au Revoir" that's delivered by Tommy Tune and reprised touchingly by Lane and Burnett, and a marvelous, wistful eleven o'clock number for Lane, "Marry the Girl Myself," that is a sophisticated and winning extended musical scene. Lane makes the most of all his numbers - they are witty and fun, and they sound better each time I listen.

Wonderful notion, a musical version of THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER. And anyone who says that the material didn't lend itself to musicalization should consider that people said the exact same thing about MY FAIR LADY. One never knows. And for years, show buffs have had the wonderful cut on the UNSUNG MUSICALS album of Christine Baranski and Jonathan Freeman doing the wonderful title song. For years I myself have been salivating waiting for this recording.
And here we have this stellar cast, including Nathan Lane who did the role in New York not long ago. And they all do their best. And the orchestra is big, fat and marvelous.
But in the end, it must be said that SHERRY reveals itself as one of those sixties musicals that hits all the marks but never even gets close to that certain Element X. Like BAKER STREET, JIMMY, and MATA HARI, SHERRY failed not just because of bad luck or timing, but because the score is uninspired.
It's obvious that Lipton and Rosenthal put their hearts into it. But suffice it to say that not one of the songs besides the title song even begins to hit the level of that one. Rather, this is a paint-by-numbers score so typical of its era, when the grand masters were getting written out, and the bifurcation of show music and pop was siphoning off potential new Broadway masters like Burt Bacharach. Thus the field was left open to people who could write "show music" rather than show music.
What with Lipton's grateful, breathless liner notes describing the saga of how the show was once thought lost, one so wants to receive SHERRY as a lost gem. But really, unless one is immediately entranced by the sheer participation of Bernadette Peters, Carol Burnett, Tommy Tune, Nathan Lane, etc.

SHERRY! is one of those fabulous Broadway flops which has garnered a sizable cult following. The original cast (including Clive Revill, Dolores Gray and Elizabeth Allen) was meant to have been recorded by RCA which renigned on its deal. The original score and libretto of SHERRY! were mislaid following the closure of the show, thought to be accidentally placed on the wrong truck and burned with the sets. In 1999, after a long search, the hallowed score was found untouched in the Library of Congress' archives. SHERRY! is based on the classic play THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. This brand-spanking-new World Premiere studio cast album of SHERRY! has been a long time coming, though its been worth the wait. Nathan Lane is perfect for the role of Sheridan Whiteside (indeed he played the role in the Roundabout revival of DINNER); with the legendary Carol Burnett (ONCE UPON A MATTRESS, FADE OUT-FADE IN) as Lorraine Sheldon. So great to hear Burnett in another great big bouncy musical! Her voice is still fabulous! Bernadette Peters (INTO THE WOODS, GYPSY) fits perfectly into the role of neglected secretary Maggie, giving one of the best numbers in the score - "Maybe It's Time for Me" - the justice it deserves. Tommy Tune, Tom Wopat, Lillias White and Mike Myers also put in some great appearances, with Phyllis Newman (SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING) in a disappointingly small role. Added as a bonus are several CD-ROM video selections, including interviews with Nathan Lane, Carol Burnett, Bernadette Peters and Mike Myers, as well as clips of Lane, Burnett, Peters, Wopat, Tune & co in the studio recording their numbers.

So, finally after over 30 years, here's SHERRY!
