5.0 out of 5 stars A highly underrated musical, Aug. 14 2000
This review is from: Half A Sixpence (Audio CD)
I saw this show three times on Broadway because it was so entertaning. Because this show was associated with its star, Tommy Steele, it has rarely been revived. But its score holds up well, and every song is a delight. If The Rain's Got to Fall, Long Ago, and the title tune are my favorites. It's a shame the original score was shortened for Broadway, and that the CD can't show you the fabulous Onna White dances, but this CD release is a treasure. Maybe it will encourage someone to remaster the original London cast recording. And also inspire some regional theaters to stage it again. For those who like the score, check out Peg, also by Heneker.
