A neglected gem of a musical!
(3 out of 5 stars)
"All American opened in New York during a city-wide newspaper strike so no one heard about it and it didn't last long. It deserved better with its bright score, including some tunes that have entered the popular domain such as "Once Upon A Time". It has excellent dancing and a theme which is still timely: an imigrant professor on an American college campus learning what it means to be an American and falling in love with the dean of women. You'll hum and whistle its tunes once you get to know them."
A Musical That Changed My Life
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I played the male lead in this wonderful muscial when my high school presented it over 20 years ago. I fell in love with the girl who had the female lead and we have been together ever since (through college, law school, marriage and kids!). It is a great collection of songs, as well as a great script. It is a shame it never did well on Broadway. I have always thought it would make a great musical for the big screen in the same genre of "Music Man" or "Grease". Maybe someday, but for now the songs are worth listening to if you like musicals, especially the type that came out in the early 1960's."

"I love the music in this musical!!! We did this for our high school musical in 2002, and it was fabulous!! The music in it is great! The songs are humorous and melodic. They go with the musical quite well. This cd recording of it is okay i wouldn't call it the best because the woman playing Elizabeth can't sing without an annoying vibrato. Other than that the cast does an excellent job of it."
