Edgy, Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Dazzling

See it if epic traditional/old-school musicals entertain you. This historic show with new & edgy twists still works. "Voice" winner J Kaufman ROCKS!

Don't see it if a little hanky-packy, same-sex action, & PDA's turn you off. It's not for kids (never was). Priscilla Lopez is worth the price of admission.
