About:  I fell in love with musicals through Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella starring Brandy as a kid, and then really discovered live theater through YouTube videos of RENT. That was the first show I saw in person, and I was hooked ever since.

Enchanting, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you like intricate story-lines with lots of characters to follow and invest in. It also has some fun music and great dancing. Very engaging!

Don't see it if you like a satisfying ending/closure. It's only based on one very small portion of an epic novel.
