Absolute treat for Sondheim fans or wannabes.
24 August 2003 | by (Bangkok, Thailand) – See all my reviews



There is not a single weak link here. Superb performances of Sondheim songs by Liza Minnelli, Bernadette Peters, the incomparable Dorothy Loudon (she's so convincing in her portrayal of the fragile older woman that I feel guilty pressing the "rewind" button to make her do it all again!) There's an exquisite rendition of "Sooner or Later" (danced and sung) by Karen Ziemba, with a little help from Bill Irwin. Not to mention the late Madeline Kahn's contribution, "Getting Married Today".

The DVD presentation is exemplary, with each performer clearly identified on screen plus the song's provenance: just one carp! the 8 girl dancers are so impressive that they should be named on screen.
