Must see, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you're down for a smart, witty thrill ride of a show. Some powerhouse singing and dancing all neatly packed into 85 minutes.

Don't see it if you need a traditional story. This is by no means just a concert but the narrative is cleverly weaved rather than directly told.

Also This deserves to be the hit of the season. One of the most joyful show... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Overrated, Indulgent, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you want to see what will prove to be one of the biggest hits of the season and a show that is attempting to do something outside the box.

Don't see it if you want to see a traditional musical or prefer a plot, which is non existent here. The same jokes get beaten over and over again.
