Great stage play when you can't see it live
5 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's obvious that the previous reviewer doesn't like musicals (stated by him) and has never seen live theater. This is a video of live theater, not a movie version. It is an entirely different style of acting and Harris was one of the best stage actors of our time! Richard Harris does a lot of "song speak" instead of actual singing, but then again so did Rex Harrison in "My Fair Lady". It is not distracting and he does actually sing parts of songs. I think it's wonderful that HBO made it possible to see a stage revival of this great Lerner & Lowe musical for people who couldn't see it in New York. I did see a touring show in Detroit of "Camelot" with Richard Harris and loved it!! Fabulous actor who is missed.
