I think this is the musical theater equivalent to mounting Olympus, but I honor the effort. And as much as I love Williams, I think he's the wrong composer for this material. I think LaChuisa or Guettel or JRB would be better.

Paul Williams, though oft-noted for writing both music and lyrics, is just the lyricist on this one. The composer is Gustavo Santaolalla, known for such film scores as Brokeback Mountain.
