THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL made history as the first Broadway musical to be re-tooled and re-cast during its run, following scathing reviews and waning box-office. This album features the original Broadway cast, headed by the lovely Christine Andreas.
Frank Wildhorn's score contains a veritable treasure-trove of delights including "Where's the Girl?", "The Creation of Man", "The Riddle", "You Are My Home", "When I Look at You" and "Only Love". "Storybook" looks set to remain a constant in the repertoire of every self-respecting cabaret singer.
The cast includes Terrence Mann (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST), Douglas Sills (LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS) and Christine Andreas (OKLAHOMA!). THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL is a fine musical and is worthy of a production that will do full justice to its sparkling score.

Ah! I simple loved this CD! I've read the Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy and I loved it (all three times ^^)! My friend told me that there was a musical, but I hadn't looked into it. But my dad came home with a copy and I nearly had a heart attack!
Anyway, onto the music... I really loved it! "Madame Guillotine" was just so energetic and then it went to "Believe" in which I think the harmonies are beautiful. I find myself singing along and getting frustrated because there's no one to sing along with me. The songs "The Creation of Man" and "The Scarlet Pimpernel" are very funny and I've memorized all of them. Definately get this CD even if you haven't seen the musical - that's what I did!

I have never had the pleasure of seeing this show on Broadway, but simply listening to this soundtrack gives me at least some idea of how awesome the show was when performed live.
Frank Wildhorn is one of my favorite Broadway composers, he's right up there alongside ALW. The songs are filled with energy, adventure, and all sorts of emotions, you can't help but get swept away, especially in regards those who lend their voices to these incredible songs: Douglas Sills, Terrance Mann, and Christine Andreas.
Every song is simply a delight and they reflect the story exceptionally well. It is a true swashbuckling story filled with passion, intrigue, and loads of laughs.
"Madame Guillotine" is one of my favorites, as it is filled with the ripe madness and furvor of the French Revolution as the citizens worship the instrument of destruction, the guillotine.
"Into the Fire" is another one of my favorites, a rousing anthem to raise the spirits of bravery and courage, a fitting battlecry as Percy and his friends decide to take it upon themselves to save the lives of the innocent in Paris. Wonderful stuff.
"Falcon in the Dive" is an awesome song as sung by Chauvelin as he deals with the various thoughts and feelings that plague him in his duty to hunt down the Pimpernel and maintain order as a servant of the revolution.
"The Scarlet Pimpernel" is definitely awesome because it is an ensemble song dealing with the various rumors about who the Pimpernel is. Some of them more outlandish than the last.
"The Creation of Man" is one of the funniest songs as it deals with Percy and his friends singing about how it is the duty of the aristocratic male to uphold the banner of well-tailored fashions.
I could go on and on, but basically every song on this album is excellent. Do yourself a favor and get this record, and get your hands on the concept album as well. Both are really awesome.

Frank Wildhorn's "Scarlet Pimpernel" is infamous for its struggles on Broadway; it's a shame, since I would have loved to see it play on and on for years. The story is charming, telling the story of a mysterious nobleman who, along with a band of followers, is committed to saving the lives of innocent aristocrats during the time of the French Revolution. While not doing their daring duty, this man and his friends assume extremely foppish personalities to avoid suspicion of their activities. The music is an absolute delight to listen to, ranging from the bouncy strains of "Into the Fire", "The Creation of Man" and the title tune to the heavier tone of "Madame Guillotine", "Falcon in the Dive" and "The Riddle". I could see the reason behind the later removal of such songs as "Vivez!" (it's not as up to par as some of the others) but why they should choose to remove such a lovely ballad as "Only Love" is beyond me.
Cast in the lead as the Pimpernel (known publicly as Sir Percy Blakeney), Douglas Sills manages to convey both the silly fop and the dashing hero with a mere change of vocal pattern. I did not ever see him in the role, but I can tell why he was popular. He seems to be having the time of his life.
Christine Andreas has a lovely voice as Marguerite, but she seemed to lack warmth in the love songs. However, she totally conveys a feeling of isolation in her powerful rendition of "When I Look At You".
The only other recording I ever heard Terrence Mann on was "Beauty and the Beast". He's got a pretty good voice, though perhaps a tad heavy for the part of Chauvelin. I much prefer the Chauvelin on the "Encore" recording.
I throughly recommend this recording.
