Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
If you thought your kids would survive the summer of 2000 without any new Disney-movie tunes to warble in the car, think again. The Mouse offers this charming little truffle, the soundtrack to ABC-TV movie GEPPETTO, which stars Drew Carey in the title role and features Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the Blue Fairy, Brent Spiner (best known as Data on "Star Trek: The Next Generation") as evil puppet master Stromboli, and Great White Way habitue René Auberjonois as Professor Bounragazzo. With Broadway-bright music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz ("Pocahontas," "Pippin," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"), the soundtrack to this amusing twist on the classic story of the wooden boy ...

With Broadway-bright music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz ("Pocahontas," "Pippin," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"), the soundtrack to this amusing twist on the classic story of the wooden boy made real is engagingly fun fare. The zestful and boisterous ensemble pieces and riveting solo spots make this a tale you'll be happy to hear retold. Spiner's tour de force "Bravo, Stromboli!" is a standout. He wraps his nimble tongue around deliriously verbose passages: "Perhaps little Woody's forgotten that he signed a contract/That binds him to me in each codicil, rider and clause/Ensuring whenever my orchestra strikes up the entr'acte/He'll be appearing and I'll be hearing/The jingle of coins and the tingling sound of applause." A nifty little musical, nicely done.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The soundtrack to ABC/Disney's Geppetto features words and music by Broadway and film composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz, who also composed for the musicals Godspell, Working, and Children of Eden, and wrote music for the Disney films Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The album includes performances by Drew Carey as Geppetto, Seth Adkins Pinocchio, Julia Louis-Dreyfus the Blue Fairy, Brent Spiner Stromboli, and Usher Ringleader; songs like "Empty Heart," "I've Got No Strings," and "Just Because It's Magic" are some of the highlights from this retelling of the Pinocchio story from Geppetto's viewpoint.

    Delightfully light! 'Since I Gave My Heart Away' sure to please

    Geppetto is a charmer for anyone with the least interest in family love. I marvel at how Stephen Schwartz can write lyrics about an old subject, like a parent's love for their child, and express this love poignantly so that we can be touched by such emotions in a new way. Geppetto shows off Schwartz's talent in a more playful mode than his previous movie musicals Prince of Egypt, Pocohantas (Menken/Schwartz), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Menken/Schwartz). In this way it is more reminiscent of his Godspell, Pippin, and The Magic Show. The score is light and transports a listener buoyantly into the magical world of an enchanted tale. This CD is worth purchasing for the two versions of 'Since I Gave My Heart Away' alone. The song is charming both in and out of context of the show, the first version with its full and rich choral finale and the second (single version) with its simple but soulful charm. The song offers a reminder of how a human heart, as opposed to a 'wooden,' unfeeling heart, can experience love that far transcends attachment to physical possessions. Rather than coming off as trite or overdone, lyrics and music combine to sweep away cynicism and transport the listener to a sweeter state of being.
