I was introduced to this musical by an excellent local production and liked it so much I went out and bought the Broadway cast album, which has become a favorite. Rebecca Luker is simply extraordinary as Lily. Her high, clear soprano is both warm and haunting.

The rest of the cast is also excellent, though I personally prefer Mandy Patinkin’s acting to his singing and favor the Anthony Warlow/Philip Quast version of the show’s biggest hit song, Lily’s Eyes:

Other favorite songs include  I Heard Someone Crying, A Girl In The Valley, Show Me The Key, The Girl I Mean To Be, Quartet: There’s A Man, Hold On, and Letter Song.
