Granted, the show has problems. There is hardly any sub-plot, the minute Genevieve leaves Aimable you know she's going to come back to him, and the antagonist is somewhat cartoon-like, but the music is great!! For those who believe that there are "only three good songs," listen closely! And if you have listened closely, listen closer! All of the music is rich and full and lovely, crafted masterfully and filled with levels that make us sympathetic to the characters! I love this show and this CD. It is a chance to have a piece of Broadway obscurity, (since the original production closed on the road),that refuses to remain obscure. This is a highly recommendable purchase! One star is missing because it is not the full, beautiful score.
