The Girl in Pink Tights [Original Broadway Cast]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
The Girl in Pink Tights, which opened on Broadway on March 5, 1954, and closed at a loss just 15 weeks later, told a potted history of the origins of the American musical, tracing them to a French ballet company stranded in New York in the years after the Civil War that joins in with a straight play to create the first musical, The Black Crook. On-stage, its chief attribute was French ballet dancer Jean Marie. She had appeared in the film Hans Christian Anderson and was making her Broadway debut performing dances choreographed by Agnes de Mille, who had gained fame with Oklahoma! before adding directing to her credits.

The Girl in Pink Tights, which opened on Broadway on March 5, 1954, and closed at a loss just 15 weeks later, told a potted history of the origins of the American musical, tracing them to a French ballet company stranded in New York in the years after the Civil War that joins in with a straight play to create the first musical, The Black Crook. On-stage, its chief attribute was French ballet dancer Jean Marie. She had appeared in the film Hans Christian Anderson and was making her Broadway debut performing dances choreographed by Agnes de Mille, who had gained fame with Oklahoma! before adding directing to her credits. On record, the main attraction was the music of the late Sigmund Romberg, a veteran composer of operettas who had died three years earlier, long before actually completing his work, and had his musical sketches "developed" by orchestrator Don Walker. These developments may have made the score somewhat more contemporary than Romberg whose heyday was the 1920s might have, but it still wasn't able to compete with the sounds of 1954, though the ballad "Lost in Loveliness" became a minor chart hit in recordings by Billy Eckstine and Dolores Gray. On the cast album, it was sung adequately by David Atkinson. Jean Marie had what the liner notes described as "a voice so expressive it can disregard the rules of singing," which was a diplomatic way of dealing with its pitch and intonation problems. Overall, The Girl in Pink Tights was a minor effort, and the cast album had been out of print for decades when DRG licensed it from Sony for a CD reissue in 2002.
