As the librettist, Jay Dias must assume some responsibility for this show's distracting moments of excess, because composers Daniel Humbert and Clayton Stang have created a subtle score that enhances the sadness of the biographical material. Whether their dexterous tunes will prove will be hummed decades from now by people who've never even seen A Christmas to Remember--is a question for the ages. For my taste, they were just unmemorable enough to let the story, the performances, and the voices dominate my impression of the production.
