Broadway Musicals DVD

BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - Studs Terkel (Actor), Barry Bostwick (Actor), Kirk Browning (Director), Stephen Schwartz (Director) - Studs Terkels Working Broadway Theatre Archive - Broadway Musicals DVD - This musical adaptation of the Studs Terkel book examines the average worker's viewpoint--showing that he or she is anything but average. Based on a series of interviews with real working people--construction workers, waitresses, firemen, secretaries and cleaning women--Working is both an exploration of the individuals' occupations and a lament for lost hopes and dreams. This musical adaptation was conceived by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin). A must for all musical theatre buffs. And the singing is performed by some wonderful people. Rocky Horror's Barry Bostwick as the Steelworker, Scatman Crothers as a Parking Lot Attendant called Lovin' Al: The Wizard, West Side Story's Rita Moreno as a Waitress who feels like an artist, Charles Durning as a retiree, Patti LaBelle as a Cleaning Woman and James Taylor (mentioned above) as a Trucker. Highlights include Bostwick's stirring ballad Fathers and Sons Moreno's It's an Art and the highly affecting Me and My Machine performed by an unseen vocalist during the Millworker scene. Great performances by an all-star cast. Eileen Brennan (Clue, Murder by Death) gives a WONDERFUL performance, but unfortunately does not sing her character's Millwork song herself. Patti LaBelle sings the [...] out of her Cleaning Women song, but does not seem all that emotionally involved in the proceedings. Barry Bostwick gives a touching and brilliant performance, delivering a heart-wrending rendition of Fathers and Sons. Rita Moreno stops the show, and other wonderful performances given by all. Stephen Schwartz adapted his original Broadway script for this video production and added Studs Turkel as a narrator. The premise of the show is simple -- it's about real people telling Mr. Turkel and us what they do for a living and what they like or dislike about their work. Their stories are told here both in words and songs. And since the songs were created by six very talented people the music and lyrics cover a wide variety of styles while developing and explaining each the character singing them. That's a lesson most of today's new Broadway composers could learn.
