Funny, Riveting, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful
May 30th, 2022

See it if you like anti-hero stories.

Don't see it if you have a short attention span, as the show is nearly three hours (but they go by so fast though!).

Also This is a brilliant character study, and it kept me compelled for its ... Read more Read less

Quirky, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful
May 30th, 2022

See it if you like everything camp.

Don't see it if you're allergic to over-the-top shows.

Also This was so much fun that I would almost look past the fact that the s... Read more Read less

Relevant, Must see, Thought-provoking, Riveting, Great acting
May 30th, 2022

See it if you're ready to get a masterfully interpreted slap about the flaws of the justice system when it comes to sexual assault cases.

Don't see it if the topic of sexual assault is triggering for you, as this is a painful watch in any case.

Also I cried 5 or 6 times. It was worth it. I thought I knew everything the... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Dated, Intense, Great singing
March 31st, 2022

See it if you're a musicals/Andrew Lloyd Webber stan. You like period pieces and creepy/romantic love stories.

Don't see it if you hate musicals. You will entirely loathe this experience. You hate chandeliers.

Also Is it dated in every way (sets, costumes and story)? Yes. Do I still l... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Great staging, Entertaining
March 31st, 2022

See it if you loved the movie and enjoy creative special effects. Pretty sure you don't need to love musicals for this one.

Don't see it if you don't like silly comedies about time-travel. (Why wouldn't you though?!)

Also I booked this thinking it was the most absurd idea and that is was goi... Read more Read less

Epic, Great singing, Entertaining
March 31st, 2022

See it if you were forced into catholic school as a kid and want a wildly entertaining way to confront the trauma!

Don't see it if you hate musicals. Again, this is not the one that will change your mind.

Also This was a good time, the story is of solid Biblicalness, full of viol... Read more Read less

Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful
March 31st, 2022

See it if you like big bold musicals with enchanting sets and incredibly creative costumes and puppetry.

Don't see it if you hate musicals. Some musicals might change your mind, but I don't think this is the one. It's very...musical-y. In a good way.

Also I thought the nostalgia element was strong with this one, but then I s... Read more Read less

Frozen (London)
West End
Great staging, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful
March 31st, 2022

See it if you are an unashamed fan of wholesome big-budget entertainment like me.

Don't see it if you are a grinch who hates joy/a parent who has had to listen to Let it Go until their ears bled.

Also Sure, Frozen is my favourite Disney movie so of course I loved this. B... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Great set design, Slow, Cliched
March 31st, 2022

See it if you're a fan of Jaws but not that much of a fan that you know all the fun facts because this show will Wikipedia-page them right out at you.

Don't see it if you're looking for original, thought-provoking theatre.

Also Visually, this was great. The set was beautiful, and the actors looked... Read more Read less

Conceptual, Sad, Moving, Great acting, Absorbing
March 31st, 2022

See it if you want a honest, relatable look at the pain that comes with the end of a loving, beautiful relationship. A true human experience.

Don't see it if you just got dumped. Or maybe do, it might be cathartic?

Also I found myself blocking the memories of old break-ups that came rushin... Read more Read less

Beautiful, Inspiring, Thought-provoking, Moving, Relevant
March 31st, 2022

See it if you enjoy a wholesome ugly cry because this show is about the beauty and resourcefulness of humanity when put in desperate situations *sobs*

Don't see it if honestly, my best friend always says "I HATE musicals...except Come From Away tho". I think she actually secretly likes musicals but still.

Also I thought a musical about 9/11 was the worst idea anyone had ever had.... Read more Read less
