I bought this disc for several reasons. I've been impressed with some of Ricky Ian Gordon's earlier work, primarily in his musical "My Life With Albertine", and as I huge fan of "The Light in the Piazza" I was excited to hear Kelli O'Hara and Victoria Clark on the same recording . What I didn't expect was such a gorgeous score and talent from the entire cast.

The story deals with two childhood friends who are separated. Though their lives take them on different paths they are able to meet again in their dreams- a technique called "dreaming true". Though it keeps them connect, it also affects all other relationships.

The story spans about fifty years and the music evolves with the changing times. Songs like "God's There" and "He's Gone" are almost arias, while "Have a Nice Day" references the posters popular in the 1970's and "The Best Years of Our Lives" uses a trio to evoke the atmosphere of post WWII America.

This recording features an all-star cast but particular standouts are Brian D'Arcy James and Jason Danieley as Peter and Verne, the grown boys, Kelli O'Hara (stunning on "God's Here" and "Best For You") as Peter's wife, Madge, and Victoria Clark has a brief shining moment in "He's Gone". My only complaint she was underused. But overall this is a great cast in a wonderful score. Thank goodness we have PS Classics introducing these hidden gems to the world!
