I'm sure the actual recording is great and I've seen the show done locally by a high school so it's definitely worth checking out. My issue is that I've ordered the cd twice and both times it came, it had been mispackaged! The case, liner, and cd all indicated it was the musical "13" but when I plugged in the cd, I quickly discovered that I had a cd of Asian spa music. Yup. The whole thing. I missed the deadline to return it so gave it to my massage therapist, then ordered a second one and even though it had been opened previously (and I'm thinking "Okay, great, they at least went through them and weeded out the bad ones"), I got ANOTHER cd of Asian spa music!! Now I think I've missed the deadline to return that one too -- bah! I'm busy, what can I say, but geez Amazon, get your act together!
