I originally bought this for the sheet music in the back, and I had fun with that immediately. Then I set it aside for a while, but I was happy to get back to it and read the additional material — background on the show, script and song development, reminiscences from those involved, etc. Some of it I already knew, but it was still fascinating. The show was such a total labor of love for Joss, and it’s amazing how everybody involved shared in that love for creating something so completely new and different.

I would recommend this to anybody interested in the show’s origins or who just loved it and its music. I will warn musicians, though, that the binding does not lend itself well to staying open on a music stand. Be prepared to make copies for actual use. I would not recommend this to anybody who has not seen the show. But what is wrong with you??? Go watch it!
