Edgy, Intelligent, Overrated, Raunchy, Thought-provoking

See it if I thought it was a good musical not great. Riding on the coat tail of Le Miz, this show talks about people who chose to live like this where

Don't see it if Le Miz dealt with poor people who wanted change. This subject matter can be disturbing to many, so it is not for everyone.
