The classic musical re-imagined as a chamber-piece
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 12/13/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"After its disastrous Broadway debut 12 years before, GIGI made it across the pond in a slightly-tweaked version and was a much more intimate in nature compared to its over-produced Broadway counterpart.This production boasted three veritable legends of the European stage in Beryl Reid, Jean-Pierre Aumont and Sian Phillips. Joining them as the romantic Gigi and Gaston, respectively, were Amanda Waring and Geoffrey Burridge.This recording is very different than the 1973 Broadway cast, in that the arrangements are more simplified and are thus more intimate and romantic. There is the addition of an Entr'acte that is quite beautiful, and the performances are uniformly excellent.Amanda Waring proves to be the perfect innocent little Gigi, whose personal and emotional journey is far more believable here than on the original Broadway album.All-in-all, a superb recording, and its such a shame that it is currently out of stock."
Gigi - A Worthwhile Treat

"This London Cast is stunning! I've personally never seen them perform (duhh) but I have to admit they all have stunning voices... The Gigi is terrific (much better than the Broadway Cast Gigi) in "The Earth and Other Minor Things"... SHe has a beautiful voice that seems to float over the notes."
