Brilliant, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Must see, Intense

See it if you want to see an intense story of a flawed family trying to cope with mental illness. I was hooked from the first note.

Don't see it if you are looking for something light. One of the most intense shows I have ever seen and an unlikely story for a musical, but so well done. Read more

Don't see it if Want elaborate dance numbers, ensembles or costumes. Don't enjoy tough topics of mental health. Want a "feel good" show.
