Worth it -- but another mixed bag Nov. 25 2004
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Once again, I'm grateful for what good we do get in the mix of performances captured in Broadway's Lost Treasures II -- for what is good is quite good.

Among the best are Michael Jeter and Brent Barrett having a ball in "Grand Hotel," Patti LuPone brassily belting in "Anything Goes," Angela Lansbury and Bea Arthur radiating charm and affection in "Mame," Robert Lindsay acting and singing very much like Anthony Newley in "Me and My Girl," and Walter Bobbie and chorus bringing down the house in "Guys and Dolls."

But we also get plenty of less-exciting segments, and several once again are lip synched (generally the performers recreating their performances for the 1971 Tony show's retrospective). The latter include Richard Kiley in "Man of La Mancha" and Tom Bosley in "Fiorello." The whole lifeblood of Broadway is LIVE performance, so these artificial segments should have been left in the vault and more time should have been given to other truly live performances.

The most curious segment is Katherine Hepburn in "Coco." In the end, though, it doesn't do much for the reputation of the show -- or Hepburn, for that matter. She can't sing -- that's no surprise -- but she's also unable to immerse herself in the character. You never forget it's Hepburn doing Chanel, and she tends to bellow to be heard across the footlights. Since Hepburn insisted on having this segment pretaped without an audience, we also get a very intrusive laugh track. But for many, Hepburn's star wattage will be enough.

All that said, every Broadway fan needs to have this DVD in his/her collection. And we can only hope that more will be forthcoming.

Treasures is a perfect title for this DVD! Jan. 31 2006
By R. Schaitberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As a musical theatre lover I've seen a lot of footage from various tony's & concerts, but this was delightful! The wide range of preformances and preformers are just great! I'd get this based only on the fact that it has Patti LuPone doing Anthing Goes on it! :) Also, the selections from Jelly's Last Jam & Chicago are just great! Enjoy! (and if you haven't seen the first Lost treasures DVD, treat yourself to that!)

RARE AND MAGNIFICENT March 12 2005
By Dr. William A. Rieck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I received the first and second issues of the series the same day, watched both twice. It was wonderful to relive some of the performances I saw on Broadway as well as to see some performances I was not able to see "live". There is nothing like the m,agic of live theater and both volumes bring it to you via Toney Awards telecasts. It was nice to see Tom Bosley [ Happy Days, Father Dowling Mysteries, and Murder She Wrote] in his Tomy Award performance as Fiorello Laguardia; Jerry Orbach [Law and Order] in 42nd Street and Chicago, Angela Lansbury [Murder She Wrote] in Mame and Sweeny Todd., and so it goes. THIS IS A MUST FOR ANYONE WHO LIKES MUSICAL THEATER. I only hope there is a third edition.

By David Horiuchi - Published on Amazon.com

Angela Lansbury and Bea Arthur, Mame
Robert Morse, How to Succeed
Jane Lapotaire, Piaf
Richard Kiley, Man of La Mancha

All Singing, All Dancing
Nell Carter and cast, Ain't Misbehavin'
Michael Jeter and Brent Barrett, Grand Hotel
Gregory Hines and cast, Jelly's Last Jam
Walter Bobbie and Nathan Lane, Guys and Dolls

George Hearn and cast, La Cage aux Folles
Cast, Les Miserables
Shirley Verrett and cast, Carousel
Jerry Orbach, Chicago

Bonus Performances
Katharine Hepburn, Coco
Robert Lindsay, Me and My Girl
Tom Bosley, Fiorello!

They don't make 'em like this any more Aug. 24 2005
By Grandma Ag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
For those of us of a certain age - which probably means anyone past 50, these days - this is an incredible look back on the people, the performances, the to wonderful music and dance that we just don't see enough of in this age of rap and hip-hop (which we know is aimed at a younger crowd, who probably feel as passionate about them as we do about "our" kind of entertainment.) It's a super hour-and-a-half of happy memories.
