‘Stop the World’ still holds up after all these years

In Review

By THEODORE L. STEINBERG - Special to the OBSERVER , The OBSERVER

Back in the 1960s, "Stop the World - I Want to Get Off" was my favorite musical. Almost every night I would listen to it on record (remember records?), and I was lucky enough to see a great performance of it. It always seemed strange to me that many audience members would walk out during the performance, because I thought the show was brilliant, but I did recognize that it was different than other musicals. So when I heard that "Stop the World" would be presented this year at SUNY Fredonia, I was excited, but I also wondered whether the show would hold up. Would I still think it was as brilliant as I had thought many years ago?
