AllMusic Review by

Richard Rodgers' final musical, Rex, was an ambitious, occasionally bizarre story about King Henry VIII and his many wives. Nicol Williamson, Penny Fuller, and Glenn Close are the stars in this original cast recording, and while the music is a little uneven, RCA Victor's 1997 reissue is a splendid affair, illustrating that Rodgers was still in fine form in the latter half of his career.
