Storyline

A young poet gets the brilliant idea to live in a department store, hiding by day, and courting his muse by night where it's quiet, and he can have all his needs met. But, to his surprise, he learns his brilliant idea's not exactly original; there are other residents who dodge the night watchmen, and who keep their existence secret at all costs. And one of them is a young woman who wants to leave, but is to frightened to go. And Charles finds that he wants to show her the larger world outside. Written by Kathy Li

More recordings of the music
27 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On Mandy Patinkin's 1987 CD Dress Casual, the music from Evening Primrose is sung by the two great interpreters of Sondheim's music: Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. It was a wonderful introduction to the songs. The CD itself suffers from something common in his albums, a too-large modulation in volume, which is forever causing you to turn the volume up, then down, then up again.

But the singing itself is gorgeous. These are two magnificent voices singing music representative of Broadway's best composer, and it's a wonder we haven't heard the tunes more often in the many tributes to Sondheim. The plot idea is as old as Greek mythology, and over-used. Anyone interested in Sondheim at all should get a listen to this CD.
