Lyricist/librettist Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty's musical Dessa Rose is in some ways reminiscent of their stage adaptation of Ragtime in that it tells interweaving stories of black and white Americans and their confrontation with racism. Nominally speaking, Ragtime was the larger scale work, encompassing a huge cast, playing in a Broadway theater, and also taking on the immigrant Author: William Ruhlmann.
Even with some flaws, though, "Dessa Rose" is an engaging story full of humanity and the cast on this recording is really strong across the board. If I do wish the show had some of the dramatic complexity of, say, the undervalued "Caroline, or Change," there is a lot to appreciate in this show-- and the music alone makes it worthy of a high /5(7).
