Great writing, Great staging, Relevant, Intelligent, Must see

See it if you like theatre done effortlessly and are tired of jukebox musicals and shows based on movies. "And for a moment I forget how cold it gets"

Don't see it if you don't like supporting new works or if you want a happy ending. "It's a sad tale, it's a tragedy, but we're gonna sing it anyway."
