About:  I'm a native New Yorker that grew up watching theatre, the arts are really important to me. Tend to like plays more than musicals, prefer off Broadway to Broadway but once in a while I like the glamour and glitz of Broadway shows.

See it if you'd like to see a musical about Cambodian Genocide. Dark topic told in a way easy to digest. Engaging, great singing & enlightening.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals, don't like history about Cambodian genocide, would like to see a lighter subject.
