Hi my name is Daniel Osborn. I am 15 and in the Lakewood High School drama club. We didn't do this musical but I would like to do it because it is the greatest musical on earth. Featuring Law & Orders Jerry Orbach. I first saw this play two years ago at a little theatre in Newark Ohio called Weathervane. It is a nice little theatre but the catch is its in a barn. They do musicals and plays every summer. When I saw this one I just fell in love with it bought the cd and fell more in love with it. I think it will keep running untill the end of time if you haven't already seen it I think you should Tom Jomes and Harvey Schmidt done a ''Fantastick'' job! When I grow up I want to be a broadway revivalists and an High School theatre director and this will be the first show that I will ever direct on stage.
After watching the movie and seeing a performance at UCO, this endearing mirror of life by Schmidt and Harvey is my absolute favorite musical. The songs are quite enchanting and catchy. I am interested in researching the other musicals these composers have created such as Colette Collage and the Show Goes On.
Can you believe that Jerry Orbach went from the fantastics to Law and Order... we was delightful in his role on this album
