Very interesting but gets long

Michael's voice, as always, is astonishing. That's the good news. The bad news begins with the first number, "When you Wish Upon a Star." The song begins with a bunch of children crowding around a homeless man, who magically is transformed into an 18th century ringmaster (i.e., Crawford appears in his "Barnum" garb), while the street kids turn into circus acts. It gets better from there, going to more conventional scenes in theatres or recording sessions, but they do begin to run together after a while, and for those that know Michael, it's pretty much what you've seen on the In Concert TV special. Definitely worth it for Crawford fans, but for the quantity, not the quality.
