This review is from: A New Brain (1998 Original Cast) (Audio CD)
As a fan of Bill Finn's "Marvin Trilogy" I was anxious to hear "A NEW BRAIN," Finn/Lapine's Off-Broadway show about a composer who faces death due to a problem with his brain. This show is semi-autobiographical for Finn who suffered from a similar brain problem. The result: a touching show filled with some of the greatest melodies and amusing lyrics I've heard from recent shows.
Great performances are evident, including Malcolm Gets as Gordon, the main character; Norm Lewis as Gordon's lover, Roger; and Penny Fuller as Gordon's ever-intrusive mother.
While the show apparently garnered mixed reviews from critics, this CD allows the score to shine in spite of a weaker book than "FALSETTOS." With gems such as "I'd Rather Be Sailing," "I Feel So Much Spring," "The Music Still Plays On," and "Heart and Music," this disc has found a frequent home in my CD player. If you're a fan of William Finn's work, this is a must-have. If you're a general Broadway fan, I anticipate that you'll appreciate the score more than some of the other dreck out there now.
