In my Finian’s Rainbow piece, I quoted Terry Teachout‘s line “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more musically satisfying Broadway show,” thinking (in the context of the review) that this referred to the combination of the score and the performances. In comments, however, Teachout writes: “Actually, I wasn’t talking about the score–I was talking about the production and performance.” Thanks for the correction.

This, of course, doesn’t change my own thesis that Finian’s Rainbow has the best score ever written for a musical. But  everyone has their own choice for the absolute best score.
