Sondheim's Putting it Together
Posted 05 March 2007 - 08:38 PM
To me SJS's song don't really work when taken out of context and especially if you try to weave a a narrative around it but here most of them do work. I feel Getting maried today is to give the audience a laugh towards the end. But hey what the heck Carol Burnett is fabulous in the role.
The relationship between CB and George Hurn is amazing, you really feel for them as characters. Both give an amazing performance
Bronson Pinchot is also really good and cute in all the right ways. Plus good comic timing
Ruthie Henshall, I like but ...
John Barrowman looks and sounds great but as usual he could be singing a shopping list or his 7 times table because the guy has no depth ... I'm not sure how old RH & JB are supposed to be but they cavort around the stage like star crossed 20's year olds looking 35 year olds
It's good I would love to see it done over here (wasn't it done in Chichester and Harrogate?)
Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.
