CD Reviews

Splashy Revival Makes Good...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This splashy 80's revival of Wilson's "Boyfriend" works a treat. The beefed up chorus numbers allow the sugary score to be fully appreciated. Though Julie Andrew's is very good in the 1954 recording, this Sally seems more demure and very much a true "young lady". Accents are all convincing, and in the style of musical comedy, often slightly over done. Very funny with excellent comic timing. The tight musical direction and chorus work allows for a slick, taught product. Buy both and see for yourself."
Fun all the way.

"The only reason that you should want to buy the original cast recording of this musical is for Julie Andrews...She is the only good part of that CD, which is why you should instaed purchase this one, the 1984 revial recording. In short, the performances are a lot better. PLUS, the best song in the show isn't even ON the OBC recording!"
Just what I was looking for

"We are looking at putting on The Boyfriend and this version is great musically, very accessible for young people. Bright and bubbly. I also purchased the original 1954 version but I prefer this one.
