"This is by far a hidden treasure. I remember seeing The Magic Show many times on Broadway and hearing the score bought back many memories of those days at the Cort Theater. Many in the show have gone on to bigger better things(David Ogden Stires,Anita Morris, and little known at the time keyboardist Paul Shaffer)IT is wonderful to have them together here in this wonderful CD. I had forgotten the great lyrics of The Goldfarb Revolations and Twos Company and Dale Soules powerful West End Avenue. Thanks to this great CD they live again.If only the show could be done today. Now that would be truly magical!"
Great Under Represented Show

"I just recently bought "The Magic Show" because of hearing previous renditions of "West End Avenue" (Alice Ripley; absolutely amazing), "Lion Tamer" (Christen Chenoweth), and "Solid Silver Platform Shoes" (Alice Ripley & Emily Skinner; DIVA!) The album itself is very upbeat and energenic. The rendition of "Solid Silver..." is awesome and doesn't fall short of the new one. The best thing about this album is the fabulous Anita Morris. Her "Charmin's Lament" is a singing sensation. It's a great comedy piece as well as vocally challenging. There's also some great belts in "Sweet, Sweet" Overall the entire album is a fun show, and besides I love Stephen Schwartz. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!"
Here's to Dunniger, Houdini, and Doug-- our Magic man!

"This cd includes some of the funnest music I have heard on a broadway cd in quite a while. Stephen Schwartz rocks and this cd proves it. The songs range from goofy, fun songs (Solid Silver Platform Shoes, Two's Company) to Sexy Ballads (Charmin's Lament) to surprisingly emotional songs (Lion Tamer, West End Avenue.)"
