In the decades that ensued since the book was written, Armistead Maupin had become practically the same age as his beloved character, Mrs. Madrigal. As a result, he found himself rewriting a lot of her dialogue to reflect wisdom he had learned with age. See more »
Only just okay - the first was much better acted...
This one was good in that it lived up to the story that Armistad wrote. I think that this change in cast was not a good one. I preferred the first cast in Tales of the City. I'm so glad that Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis came back for More. They really helped to keep this glued together. Although I felt that Tales of the City was much better, the underlying story by Armistad Maupin is fantastic and definitely deserves to be made into a movie (or mini-series) for the masses to see. I can't get enough Maupin. Get the books! You'll be glad you did......
