See it if you love a contemporary take on history and are all about girl power! You will have these songs stuck in your head for daysss.

Don't see it if you want to learn about history as you can read about it in the books. Also if you are pro Henry VIII (doubtful).

See it if Entertaining but I felt it lacked heart. More of a concert than anything else.

See it if You like fun, upbeat and fast-pasted shows. Also great if you enjoy shows that run all the way through with no interval.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of a 'girl band' dynamic for historical figures. Whilst enjoyable, I feel as though you get all you need from the album.
