"Cross the Line" and Make This Purchase!

"I was recently involved in a Cabaret Troupe revue which consisted only of songs from Maltby & Shire shows. From "big, the Musical," we did "Stars, Stars, Stars," "Fun," "Coffee, Black," and, of course, our main number, "Cross the Line." "Cross the Line" has got to be one of the freshest, most entertaining, and melodic new Broadway numbers out there. There's no doubt in my mind that it will one day be an old musical standby. "Stars" is equally wonderful, with its never-tiresome tune and jovial beat. "Fun" is simply that. "Coffee, Black," is amusing and wildly engaging. I recommend "big, the Musical" simply on the basis of these four songs. I can't wait to buy it."
Big for folks doing the Musical

"If you're getting this CD to help prepare for your school or community group doing the musical, there are a lot of changes from the CD to the book. Aside from finding the book in a new key and some chunks added/deleted, Here We Go Again and When You're Big aren't included anymore.
Overall, the music's a little trite, but there are some nice moments -- mostly the stuff sung by the female leads.
One of the greatest musicals I've ever seen!!

"When I first heard that they had made Big into a musical, I was wary to see it. But, when I did, I was amazed at the great music they put into it. The story line was great! The music, wonderful, and the actors? They were spectacular! If it ever came to my city again, I'd go see it! I recommend everyone else does too."
