"This album is an accurate portrayal of the original Broadway experience. The music is light and fanciful and the songs fun and tuneful. I saw the show with Julie Andrews with my parents in 1954 and loved it. I was impressed with how well she can whistle! I just saw the show again last week at Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut where Julie Andrews is directing a new version that will be on tour, and was pleased to see that she kept the songs and dances the way they were done when the show was first presented. By the way, the rest of the original cast was also very talented, both singing and dancing, but it's difficult to appreciate them as much as they deserve just by listening to the CD."

"I'm working with a theater company now, and I am the asst. stage manager for the Boyfriend. I have heard this version and the London Cast version. This one is very much the better one. True, some of the women can not sing, but that's how they sang back in those days. They didn't have body mikes, so they had to be loud. That was good singing in the 50's. Just informing some of you peoples."
Great Album for Lovers of this period

"To begin with, the musical was a spoof on the 1920's musicals and the one reviewer should have been aware of that fact. I have both acted and directed and love the musical.
What makes this such a fun recording is that they don't take themselves seriously and do have fun with the music. It is campy, lighthearted and a great addition to a music library.
