Company Reimagined

This cast recording is fantastic, the gender swap of Bobby to Bobbie brings a whole new energy and a lot of life to the show. Rosalie Craig gives a unique original take on Bobbie and brilliantly plays her, Patti LuPone yet again is a wonderful Joanne, and the rest of the cast is fantastic as well. Though there were one or two unnecessary changes (Paul and Amy being changed into a gay couple; Paul and Jamie) this album is still five stars and one of the best cast recordings of a musical ever created. I cannot wait to see what they do with the transfer to broadway this fall. In summary: this album is a must-buy and this show is a must-see!

Hate it

I want to like this, but I so hate it. How the life and humor can be sucked out of this score is beyond me, but the cast manages to do just that. Songs half sung, half spoken, rhythmic changes for the sake of change, circus-like orchestration added on some numbers (?) ... Big mess, IMO. The ladies who lunch falls totally flat; no irony, dull interpretation. Certainly, plenty of women have sung Being Alive, and sung it well. Here, it seems the song is just too big for the performer. The chops just aren’t there to power the song and make this interpretation memorable on any level for me.
