A great night of Entertainment
11 April 2004 | by (Orlando, Fl.) – See all my reviews

Would that there were entertainers like this today. I suppose there probably are but they just don`t get the chance to shine the way they used to. I`ve always been impressed by someone who could just stand at a microphone and sing with an orchestra without having to resort to walking the stage or gyrating uncontrollably like the performers we see today. Julie and Carol were (and are) just that. Of course they were helped by the great Mike Nichols direction and the orchestrations of the always wonderful Irwin Kostal(Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, West Side Story). There is Comedy and music all through this special including a medley of the great standards of the fifties and sixties. If your lucky enough to get a chance to see it don`t let that chance go by.
