What are people's opinion on this piece? Did anyone see the original production at Playwrights, and has there ever been a proper production in London?

I saw it at PH, and made a sort of special trip timed to be sure I saw it. Of course, Kelli O'Hara and Brent Carver were fabulous. I enjoyed it a lot, but it is what one would call a "difficult" musical. The music itself is very sophisticated and complex, and may not be everyone's cup of tea. And you've got to have damn fine singers to do it justice. Personally, I thought it was beautiful. As far as the book, well, it's awfully hard to compress all that Proust into a few hours. I don't know if anyone's ever even produced it since?? At least I had the sense to buy the cast recording.
