Synopsis

Amazon.com
The wide range of show tunes included on 1995's On Broadway makes it feel somewhat like an audition tape. After all, its star, Andrea McArdle, hadn't headlined a new show since the age of 12, and this seems to be an effort to show that she can handle a number of different roles. Does that mean it's bad listening? Of course not. McArdle (and husband/producer Edd Kalehoff) proves her point that she is one of Broadway's greatest and most versatile voices of the last quarter century and is still going strong at the ripe old age of 30. Here she sings numbers from the various places she's been over the years, including State Fair, Les Misérables, and, of course, Annie, as well as her wish list--Evita, Oliver! and Meet Me in St. Louis (it's tantalizing to imagine her in the Judy Garland role). Anyone who had tried to file Andrea McArdle under the category of "Whatever happened to..." should pick up this album and enjoy. --David Horiuchi

CD Reviews

Nobody Sings Like Andrea!
Jay Scarfone, TheBBugle@aol.com, | Pennsylvania | 02/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased Andrea McArdle's "On Broadway" in early 1996. Years later, I never tire of listening to it. McArdle delivers every note of this solo CD with a clear, clarion sound. The voice is unmistakably that of the former youngster who originated "Annie" on Broadway, but with more polish than ever. Whether you enjoy Broadway showstoppers, female vocalists, or the sound that only belongs to Andrea McArdle, do yourself a favor and add this CD to your music collection."
Andrea McArdle is the quintessential Broadway vocalist.

"Andrea McArdle quite possibly has the strongest and clearest voice on Broadway. In my opinion she is the perfect singer. Every note is a pleasure to hear. I have been a fan for years and had always hoped that Andrea would release a solo album. She certainly did not let me down. Buy this CD, fan or not, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Andrea delivers."
Gotta Love Andrea

"Nobody belts out a song like Andrea McArdle. Ever since she captured our hearts as "Annie" she has given every note of every song her full attention. Her voice has matured over the years and she still has that amazing range -- now with extreme polish. I could have done without "Pinball Wizard", but loved all the other selections. There is nothing like hearing Andrea sing "Tomorrow" -- whether she's 14 or 34. I can't wait for "On Broadway Part II" -- hopefully, it's in the works."
