I strongly urge all who fondly remembered "Starmites" during its ill-fated yet Tony- nominated Broadway run to buy this CD. With a charming & witty score by Barry Keating, "Starmites" tells the lively story of a girl who loves science-fiction comic books and gets swept away into "Innerspace", where she meets all sort of Good guys (the "Starmites") and Bad guys (the wild Diva and her evil Banshees). You get to hear a young Liz Larsen, (most recently in "A New Brain") Gabriel Barre, Victor Trent Cook (currently in "Smokey Joe's Cafe"), Gwen Stewart (currently in "Rent"), Mary Kate Law (currently in "The Sound of Music") and many other talented performers. Good triumphs over evil with brilliant vocal arrangements. A must for any musical theater buff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction meets Off-Broadway! October 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Science Fiction meets Off-Broadway in a fantastic musical that will keep every theater-goer entertained. Every song will stick with you, and some may even inspire you. Starmites is unique because it's about a topic that not many musicals touch upon- outerspace (or Innerspace, as the case may be). Gwen Stewart is amazing as the Diva. Standout songs include "Reach Right Down", "Superhero Girl", "Diva!", "Milady", "It Wasn't A Dream", and "Immolation". See, there's just so much great music! Starmites is truly a gem, and Amazon.com is the only place I've seen it being sold. Get this CD, and you'll be glad you did. It's a unique story and a musical that you can fall in love with.

4.0 out of 5 stars What A Joy! February 9, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is truly a cute show! The lyrics and songs maybe a bit simple at times, but the story is about a little girl and her comic book, so it fits very nicely. I will have to say that Barry Keating might be the next Menken/Ashmen! It's hard to summarize the story per just the recording, but the music is a mix between "Little Shop Of Horrors" and "Starlight Express". For people who buy cast recordings on a whim, this is one you will want to pick up!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's actually here - STARMITES! January 31, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow...I never expected to actually find a recording of Starmites. My high school is putting it on...we have a rather large cast (23) so we have a lot of made-up Banshees and Starmites...I'm a Banshee...Shotzi's partner in crime, Schrilla. The show is really cornball, but a lot of fun. The CD captures the fun of it all, but leaves a bunch of great stuff out too, like the "Connuptial Dance of Spousal Arousal," which has got to be the funniest number ever. Well, the show must go on, and so must I.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's finally here! September 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I played Dazzle Razzledorf in a regional production of "Starmites" about five years ago, and it had one of the most challenging -- and most rewarding -- musical scores I've ever sung (right behind "Forever Plaid"). While the story is pretty silly, the music is simply awesome. And our entire cast was thrilled to learn that there is now a CD we can listen to. Many of us have bought it, and we've all enjoyed hearing these wonderful songs again after so many years -- especially "Afraid of the Dark" and "Reach Right Down." The arrangements on this CD are a little too '80s/Michael Jackson/Heart for today's refined fin de siècle tastes, but the songs are incredible, and the singers have glorious voices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! Starmites on CD October 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am glad to finally have a listenable recording of this show. OK not the best score ever written for a Broadway musical, but certainly a lot of fun.
Not being able to secure Sharon McNight, the original DIVA, for the recording, the producers have chosen to split her songs between Gwen Stewart and Janet Aldrich (the original Diva understudy), while unusual, I am glad that I get two Diva performances for the price of one.
The orchestration is a little thin and sound quality is at times like it was recorded in a tile-lined bathroom, but it adds to the campiness of Starmites. Thank you Bruce Yeko of Original Cast records for rescuing another what could have easily have become one of the lost gems of a theatrical decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great play -- Great music November 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This cd contains some of my favoirte songs from one of the greatest musicals to ever grace the braodway (and St. Jude's Players) stage. The songs are simply wonderful and can be enjoyed by listeners of all ages. I highly recomend this to anyone who's willing to give something new a try. (Also note, this is one of the few places that you can get the cd in America.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs some work to make it junior high friendly.
Don't think it is a bad musical for junior high. Think actually, that it is a great story for junior high kids. But it needs to be a bit more junior high friendly.
