In Stop the World â€“ I Want to Get Off, all the world is Littlechapâ€™s stage â€“ and the beleaguered, wisecracking hero of this captivating â€œnew-styleâ€ musical by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley is your guide for the tuneful lifeâ€™s journey of an average bloke seeking love, wealth and career success. Shot on its original circus-ring set during a performance at the Lyric Hammersmith, the film offers a front-row seat for the charming mummery and incisive commentary of the London/Broadway hit. Tony Tanner (who followed original star Newley) makes a lithe, raffish Littlechap, whose learning curve for navigating lifeâ€™s curveballs is devilishly steep. Two-time Tony nominee Millicent Martin blithely incarnates the typically English/Russian/Japanese and all-American women who confound him. And the score by the future collaborators on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory â€“ including beloved standards â€œGonna Build a Mountain,â€ â€œOnce in a Lifetimeâ€ and â€œWhat Kind of Fool Am I?â€ â€“ is the show- and world-stopping centerpiece thatâ€™ll make you glad to get on.When sold by Amazon.com, this product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
