AllMusic Review by

Ultimate Broadway, Vol. 2 collects more performances of well-known show tunes from past and current Broadway productions, including Bebe Neuwirth's rendition of "All That Jazz" from Chicago, Alan Cumming and Natasha Richardson's performance of "Cabaret," and Jerry Orbach and Wanda Richert's version of "The Lullaby of Broadway (from 42nd Street." The collection spans musicals as venerable as Oklahoma! and as recent as The Producers and Urinetown, making for a nicely eclectic mix of songs. Other highlights include "Gee Officer Krupke" as performed by the cast of Blast!, Colm Wilkinson's performances of Les Miserables' "Bring Him Home" and Phantom of the Opera's "Music of the Night," and "Time Warp" as performed by the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. While not all the show tunes here are essentials, Ultimate Broadway, Vol. 2 is a good compilation for someone already familiar with Broadway's most familiar music and ready to expand their knowledge a little more.
