Tedious, Overrated, Great design, Great staging, Engaging

See it if You have teens who would be into imaginative plays and are disinterested in musicals.

Don't see it if You didn’t like the book or the film. This won’t change your mind. Unlike the majority of the audience, I found the story boring.

Solid, Surprising, Great staging, Delightful

See it if you want to be swept up in a story and love seeing inventive staging.

Don't see it if you're looking for a play that really chews on its ideas. This one is definitely about something, but I think it's about its staging more.

Incredible (literally), Incredible puppetry, Great choreography, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you want to see great direction by Max Webster which "sells" a false narrative to other characters and the audience.

Don't see it if you want great writing. Webster covers a multitude of writing weaknesses Read more
