5.0 out of 5 stars Lively Revival, September 11, 2012
By 
This review is from: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (New York City Center Encores! Presents) (Audio CD)
Im too young to have seen Carol Channing in the original Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, but I was dazzled by her in the revival (retitled as "Lorelei" in the '70s). Her star power, however, left little room to appreciate the show, itself, which is a truer reflection of Loos' source material than the film version. This is a good old fashioned musical with a lively and humorous book - its not Shakespeare, its just fun and light. The score is breezy, brassy, and contains more than a few standards. Megan Hilty wisely recreated the character in her own fashion and it worked VERY well. Rachel York held her own against both Hilty and the Lorelei character - creating a Dorothy who stands firmly on equal footing with Lorelei in character, song, and that belting voice. In fact, I prefer York to any of previous Dorothys. Standout songs include A Little Girl From Little Rock, Just A Kiss Apart, You Say You Care, Keep It Cool With Coolidge, and, of course, Diamonds.
