A must see for every theater lover...
18 June 2003 | by caircairSee all my reviews

if only to see Julie Andrews sing again. Granted, it's only two or three notes (in a duet with Michael Crawford), and they show how much the voice has deteriorated, but it was a heroic effort and well worth the standing ovation Ms. Andrews received. What was sweet was seeing just how touched Mr. Crawford was by her ovation. He was teary eyed, and I suspect he was not the only one -- I know I sniffled a bit.

Overall, this is an interesting production showcasing love songs from Broadway's greatest shows. Some songs are better than others, some better performed than others, but a good chance to get an idea of why live shows are well worth the price of admission.
