I can't explain what i just saw, but i loved it., So much to see and absorb that you can't take it all in. you must go back. the theatre is transformed like you have never seen. make sure you see this one. the music is grand, the voices lovely. but the production on the whole is what is amazing.

See it if You want to have an unique theatre experience. I don't think it matters where you sit, but the coveted stage seating would be most desired.

Don't see it if If you are bothered by too much going on and just want to watch and hear people standing and singing this is not the production for you.
