Years ago a friend had a video tape of EVENING PRIMROSE complete with commercial breaks, etc. Now THAT was a find. His copy was probably 4th generation, but as I had seen it on t.v. when it was first shown, there was a good memory to be strengthened by whatever I saw in this copy. If, indeed, the filmmakers have been able to remaster and clean up this incredible "horror story with music", I'll be a happy camper. To watch Tony Perkin's first official foray into the musical world (or was GREENWILLOW before this?)acts as a reminder of his multifaceted talents.

The production lured me in and captivated. An early Sondheim fan, I found the music as haunting as the subject matter. It was the most sophisticated theatre broadcast I had ever seen.
For years I searched for a soundtrack recording. Later I searched for a VHS release. Around 2005, I "googled" (not sure if they were around yet) a search. I had long since...
I didn't order this for myself, it is a Christmas gift. So far everything was OK, shipping was prompt.
