Sublime!
3 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is just about a perfect production, Peters and Patinkin are incredible (as usual), the sets, most of all the music, its so complex and beautiful. I was just stunned when i first watched it a few weeks ago. I couldn't stop thinking about it and the music was going around in my head. Of course i knew the song "Move On" which seems to recur throughout. The reason i got the DVD was because the cast recording CD is not currently available, but i've just seen that they are preparing an updated version of the original cast recording, including some songs they must have left out of the original, so i'm ordering that for sure!! Plus i love the painting as well, i've suddenly developed a great interest in 'pointillisme' and Georges Seurat. Very sad to hear about the death in Bernadette's family this week :( 10/10 from me.
