Ambitious, Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Masterful

See it if You're looking for an extremely moving show with amazing direction. A NEW prduction of Spring Awakening, brings the show to a new level.

Don't see it if You're looking for a family friendly show, or you find sign language too "busy" in addition to the show. But trust me just see it.

Delightful, Entertaining, Dated, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you like seeing child-oriented theatre, if you have a family, or if you love a light story with a clear moral.

Don't see it if You want a deep or emotional show. Webber's score is forgetable and is only saved by the use of original songs from the movie.
