Just a reminder that Lincoln Center will be livestreaming the concert presentation of "Some Lovers" tonight, Monday, Feb. 7, at 7:30 p.m. EST. The concert, part of Lincoln Center's LC Originals: First Look series, will feature top Broadway talent performing the songs of "Some Lovers," Burt Bacharach and Steven Sater's acclaimed new musical. To see the concert live on the Web, visit http://www.lincolncenter.org/lc-live. For more info, visit http://www.lincolncenter.org/show/lc-or ... first-look
Well, having just watched and heard this I have to say that my original assessment holds true. With only a couple exceptions the melodies are meandering and unmemorable. The story is still a bummer. Re-inter this thing. Everything I`ve heard from New York Animals is superior.
The livestream is still available - I am not sure how long it will be. I really enjoyed the songs. I had perhaps listened to slightly more than half before so knew what quite a few were like. I think it is great to hear some fairly new Burt Bacharach melodies.
