Taught me to appreciate Sondheim
26 August 1999 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Working in a music library, I first encountered Stephen Sondheim's work in 1995 - and hated it!

I was shown this movie and changed my mind completely. As a piece of theatre it is superb and as a 'movie musical' - well there has been a lot worse. The music tells the story. If you've ever encountered Sondheim and hated him, please, please, please take a look at this show. If you can, check out 'Into the Woods' and 'Sweeney Todd'. The man's a genius. And so are Prince and Lapine. Performances by Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters are brilliant and very real. You can feel their emotions; worry, obsession, regret. Even if you don't usually watch musicals, give this one a go. You won't regret it.

P.S. Star Trek : Next Generation Fans - check out Brent Spiner in a very non-Data role. I nearly didn't recognise him, and it proves he can sing.
