Overview

This Broadway cast album recounts the music from a minor 1992 musical based on the 1982 film about the appearance of a swashbuckling but drunken movie star (rather like Errol Flynn) on a live 1950s television comedy show (rather like Your Show of Shows). Composer Stephen Flaherty and lyricist Lynn Ahrens previously had succeeded on Broadway with Once on This Island. Working with a cast led by comedienne Andrea Martin, Lainie Kazan (re-creating her role from the movie) and, as the troublesome star, Tim Curry (of Rocky Horror Picture Show fame), Flaherty and Ahrens provide standard Broadway musical comedy fare. The principals perform valiantly.

"My Favorite Year" is filled with beautiful, quirky music. You just can't get bathroom humor better than "Funny/The Duck Joke". Tim Curry is fantastic as Alan Swann, the swashbuckling hero. He brings life and laughter with him, but he can also make you cry. Hence my facination with "The Lights Come Up." He's the star of the cast, and the reason why this CD is so great.
