AllMusic Review by

The original cast recording of this 2013 Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz's classic musical concerning a young medieval prince and his tumultuous path to adulthood was recorded at Boston's American Repertory Theater. Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Hair, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess) and featuring beloved Schwartz classics like "Magic to Do," "No Time at All," "Morning Glow," and "On the Right Track," this engaging, effusive, bombastic (and highly acrobatic, due in large part to the inclusion of Montreal's contemporary circus company Les 7 Doigts de la Main) take on one of musical theater's most well-regarded productions should please fans both old and new.
