what the critics are saying

“Revival cast albums rarely are [as good as the originals]. One of the exceptions, though, is the new Pacific Overtures
–Newark Star Ledger

“There is much to admire with the excellent cast and their commendable interpretations of Sondheim's telling and insightful songs...played with care and rich detail. Grade: A”
