AllMusic Review by

Of Rodgers & Hammerstein's three relative flops, Allegro, Me and Juliet, and Pipe Dream, Me and Juliet was the most successful. In fact, it broke even. But the only memorable thing about it remains the song that became a hit shortly after opening night, "No Other Love," based on a theme Richard Rodgers had previously used in the television series Victory at Sea. Rodgers & Hammerstein were trying for a light romantic comedy in the style of Rodgers & Hart, but Hammerstein was not Hart, and this wasn't Pal Joey. [In 2008, DRG licensed the album from its American copyright holder, Sony BMG, and put out a version with bonus tracks.]
