"...The London cast can't sing at alllllll!!!!!!!! They all go off key and have no vibrado (SP) and they are singing incorrectly. The only two people that are better on the London CD then on the off broadway cast CD are the people who play the parts of Mona and Lucky. If you are doing the show I suggest highly on getting borh CDs because the london cast CD is closer to the vocal/musical score but the off broadway CD sounds alot better and is a good refference tool in getting into character (There was a tv movie made of this show, but there is no way to buy it). I know this because I'm in the show right now. Trust me, if you just want to listen to it, buy this CD. If you are in the show, buy both london and off-broadway."
Bernadette Peters: the magic began right here!!!

"DAMES AT SEA is probably best-remembered as the musical which brought Bernadette Peters to the attention of the theatre-going public. It opened at the off-Broadway Bouwerie Lane Theatre before moving to the Theatre de Lys, where it notched up a not-too-shabby 575 performances.The musical was written as an homage to the simpler, glitzier musicals of the 1930s. The George Haimsohn/Robin Miller/Jim Wise score captures the innocence of the period, with superb tunes like "It's You", "Singapore Sue", "Raining in My Heart" and "Choo-Choo Honeymoon".Bernadette Peters gives a hint of the magic that was just around the corner with "The Sailor of My Dreams". Only 4 years later she was wowing Broadway with her acclaimed performance in MACK AND MABEL. In the 1980s, she was showcased as the leading lady in several new musicals by Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Stephen Sondheim (winning a Tony for Sondheim's SONG AND DANCE). In 1998 she returned to Broadway in a lavish revival of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (winning a Tony) and returned to Broadway this year for a revival of GYPSY.DAMES AT SEA also includes great performances from David Christmas, Tamara Long (LORELEI), Steve Elmore (COMPANY), Sally Stark and Joseph R. Sicari.For Bernadette Peters fans and fans of Broadway musicals, this cast album is a must-own. Highly-recommended."
