What a wonderful introduction
22 February 2004 | by (Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This concert was a wonderful introduction of musical theatre to the masses in China. I would imagine that anyone who attended the concert would be able to get those songs out of his or her head. The group of performers are stellar, with the exception of the female Chinese lead. She was not bad, she had a very nervous-sounding voice and seemed far too breathy for the tunes she sang. 'I Don't Know How to Love Him' was not the powerhouse performance it should have been because of that. Still, the positive attributes of this concert far outweigh the negatives. Tony Vincent is as excellent as ever with a phenomenal voice and a dazzling smile. Kris Phillips and Elaine Paige also perform well, although there was something missing in Phillips' performance of 'Gethsemanes.' His 'Sunset Boulevard' made up for this, though. The rest of the ensemble perform remarkably. I was especially impressed with the woman who sang "Take That Look Off Your Face" and the man who sang "Love Changes Everything." Overall, I would certainly recommend viewing this concert to anyone who has a heart for musical theatre. 7.5/10 stars as far as concerts go.
