THE GREATEST THEATRICAL SCORE!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"SEESAW is my favorite show. The score is absolutely brilliant. Cy Coleman is, in my opinion, the greatest Broadway composer and Seesaw really portrays that. Michele Lee has the perfect husky/raspy voice and Tommy Tune is fantastic. Ken Howard is a great Jerry Ryan, and really shows off Dorothy Fields' beautiful lyrics in his solo number, "You're a Lovable Lunatic." The lyrics are witty and the tunes range from the upbeat and wacky "It's Not Where You Start" to Gittel's mellow number, "He's Good For Me." The score really fits the story line, and unlike Coleman's other early works (i.e. Little Me, Sweet Charity, Wildcat) the songs are not all big jazzy vaudeville numbers (Little Me and the others are still great, just different). I would have loved to see this on the stage, but at least I have the CD! This is what Broadway's all about!"
This Seesaw is merely quirky fun

"Cy Coleman's Seesaw overture is a wonderful start to a wonderfully breezy CD. Most of the chorus numbers are very poor ( Spanglish, Ride Out the Storm), but the spotlighted Michele Lee, Ken Howard, and Tommy Tune are preserved fantastically. Michele Lee's husky voice is capable of making your heart soar and break at the same time. Her comedic timing is wonderful (Welcome to Holiday Inn), her down-on-her-luck song is perfection(Nobody Does It Like Me), and Poor Everybody Else will have you rooting for Michele instantly. Ken Howard is truly a Lovable Lunatic. And Tommy Tune's Tony Award winning performance is captured here with "It's Not Where You Start." It is typically Coleman music, but he is wonderfully aided with Dorothy Fields's lyrics. If you can find it for a discount, don't resist!"
