CD Reviews

You don't have to be a theater buff to enjoy this one!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was in London with some friends last year and had tickets to the show, but unfortunately I got ill and was unable to go. My friends ranted and raved so much about the show that I hated my self for not going. Ironically enough, for my birthday I received the CD and was astonished by the music and the substance to the lyrics. I felt as if I had seen the show because the lyrics were so tightly connected to the story line and the personality of the charicters in the CD and the order in which the songs were compiled made me feel as if the play was being recreated on the CD. Should we call this a CD or an audio proformance of the show. If you ever go to London, don't make the mistake I made by not attending the show even if you are sick and feeling miserable. Hats off to the preformers. I wish I could sing like all of you. Thank you for bringing the play to the U.S. via your CD. I don't even think the shows on Broadway could deliver the story like the CD. P.S. This CD is nowhere near elevator music or rest and relaxation music before bedtime."
Every major theater venue should mount a production!

"Personals is a delightful, entertaining, and provocative musical. Songs are catchy, memorable, and the CD features great voices and instrumentals. I saw the original production off-Broadway and waited for years for this recording. At last! The highlights of the show are the songs by Joel and Seth Friedman. They have a gift for melodic writing and their songs abound with musical twists and turns that make them, by far, the most rewarding, moving, and creative work on the CD. I hope to hear more from them!"
Personally, I liked Personals!

"Personals is a clever weave of modern situations, childish adult behaviour and moving emotions. Having directed this great musical revue twice for the 1992-93 season of Olympic Theatre Arts (Sequim Washington) for an AIDS benefit it was exciting to find that this fun musical comedy was finally recorded to be shared with anyone who has not had the opportunity to attend a production of this show. The cast of this production present this revue brilliantly with just the right amount of sparkle, pathos and desperation. I strongly recommend this show to any production company needing a modern revue which will not only showcase the talents of your performers, but also challenge your audience to try to keep a straight face. Buy this, play this and memorize the words before you set out into the dating scene. Or for that matter, before re-entering the dating scene."
