    Outstanding!

    A daring production that revises the original, politically incorrect, and dated script (thanks to David Henry Hwang). Performed by a first-rate cast (led by the very talented Lea Salonga), with outstanding choreography and direction from Robert Longbottom. Excellent music and orchestration. Excellent recording (with a creative pakaging to boot)!

    Amazing! Lea Salonga Rocks!

    This cd is very highly recommended! It's brilliant, funny, and just plain easy listening. Lea Salonga is phenominal! And she is backed up by a brilliant cast and a brilliant score! This is a must have for any musical theatre fan.

    Simply Amazing, Inspiring

    This CD best showcases the wonderful R&H Flower Drum score. The cast led by the incredible, pure-voiced Lea Salonga, this CD is a must-own. The best casting choice of the season is Lea Salonga's Mei Li. Salonga posseses one of the best voices on Broadway ... of the theatre. Her rendition of Love, Look Away is heartfelt and sung with vocal prowess. Jose Llana upstages his "so-so" acting job on stage. He has a beautiful lyric bari-tenor voice ... if only he could act as well. But his rendition of Like A God and Sunday in this CD are good! Sandra Allen ... the best choice for Linda Low!

    An Excellent Recording

    This new recording is close to perfect. Gorgeous musical arrangements, soaring melodies, a top-rate singing cast! Rodgers and Hammerstein's music on this opus is seriously underrated in my opinion. And the cast has truly given justice to the lovely score. Lea Salonga, who was the original Miss Saigon, gives a terrific performance here. Never have I heard such a pure voice whose range is so broad - the emotions she pours into each track is remarkable. Listen to "Hundred Million Miracles" and "Love Look Away". Jose Llana is equally talented. He shines in all his tracks, particularly the stirring "Like A God". His duet with Salonga in "You Are Beautiful" is inspiring. Of course, Sandra Allen's "I Enjoy Being A Girl" is not to be left out. Her version of this classic is done in a sort of "slinky, sexy" manner that showcases the character's charm. This recording truly gives justice to the show. If you haven't seen the show yet, grab a copy of the recording! You will not be dissappointed.

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Just bought my FDS CD today and all I can say is it is FANTASTIC!!! From the very first time Ms. Salonga opens her mouth to sing, I was hooked. IMHO, she possesses one of the most beautiful and melodious voices in Broadway today. Her leading man, Jose Llana is equally wonderful. I definitely prefer this over the original CD. After listening to this fabulous CD a couple times, I immediately bought tickets for next month in Broadway. Very highly recommended!!!
