Slow, Quirky, Fluffy, Clever

See it if you really wanna see MacBeth in the 70s as a musical. Not sure if it was spoof or bad comedy of the Bard's Tragedy. Ballads did not work.

Don't see it if you're not expecting to laugh at MacBeth with a lot of nasty words. Power ballads fall flat cause they seem so out of place.

Enchanting, Exquisite, Great writing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You like classic stories. Starts slowly but it begins to move and you are moved. By end of Act 1, you journey joyfully.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy old fashion-style musicals with modern, graphic set design. I am not sure younger children will stay engaged but many attend
