Delightful, Great staging, Relevant, Resonant, Excellent music

See it if you'd enjoy a family-oriented show. Heart-breaking yet glorious. Some numbers were magically choreographed, & E John's music is magnificent.

Don't see it if you don't like movies turned into musicals, or are married to the movie. Trust, it WORKS. Lee Hall's lyrics will break your heart, lovingly.
