November 28th, 2021

See it if you enjoy contemporary musicals. I found it to be very enjoyable and informative. It was an eye-opener for me.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals, as it's obviously a musical. If seeing something about 9/11 will bother you.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate parodies or have never heard of Love Actually.

Also It was a fun, frenetic show and the imitations were spot on. The sound... Read more Read less
