4.0 out of 5 stars Second Best Musical in a bountiful season - a great Broadway Cast Album, May 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder / O.B.C.R. (Audio CD)
This beautifully produced Broadway Cast Album (full synopsis, many color production photos and excellently sung score by Broadway new comers Robert L. Freedman and Steven Lutvak) will serve as a great reminder of a rich experience for those who see the show and a tempting introduction for those who haven't. If the preservation of the period orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick seems a trifle thinner on disc than it seemed in the theatre it in no way diminishes the sprightly fun - and if Tom Kitt & Brian Yorkey's score for the dazzling IF/THEN is more precisely on the pulse of modern pop music, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE... is, after all, a musical comedy firmly rooted in Victorian operetta/farce. Not to be missed by any fan of musical theatre at its best - or the sublime Ealing film comedy, KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS which shared a source novel with A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE... .
