"I first became enamored with this musical when I saw an electrifying theatre performance by Jane Powell. Racing to the record store and hurrying home to hear my new LP, I fell hopelessly and happily under the spell of Meridith Wilson's "Molly Brown". The play is a love story of two bold and brassy bumpkins who strike gold in Colorado's Leadville. Coming from rags to riches, Molly is determined to make it big with the wealthy and beautiful people of Denver, but it is not until she travels Europe, gains a little class and returns "unsinkable" after surviving her return trip home on the Titanic that she is finally accepted by Denver's elect. Harve Presnell is Leadville Johnny Brown with his marvelous, rich voice and Tammy Grimes is his spunky wife, Molly. Her voice is throaty and warm and her characterization downright irresistable. Meredith Willson's score is spirited, tuneful and gives a powerful upbeat message with many singable, heartwarming songs. You'll catch Molly's spirit and determination in your own life as the words repeat in your mind, "I Ain't Down Yet". Truly upbeat!"

"While this score is not the classic that "The Music Man" is, it still has many delightful songs. It also stars the unique and delightful Tammy Grimes and the talented Harve Presnell. This show is an underappreciated gem."

"I enjoyed listening to The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Broadway version. The music is lively, and Tammy Grimes is a wonderful singer, and so is Harve Presnell. The words in all the songs are understandable and makes you want to sing along with them. I love it.
