Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You want to see great performances/singing especially by Beth Malone. Neat sets on a tight budget. A true story told in dance and song.

Don't see it if True stories aren’t your thing. If you want to see a fun show off the beaten path. Colorblind casting.

Quirky, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You are 13 years old. I knew the songs but it was just not what I was expecting. The audience was loving it, but I was kind of lost.

Don't see it if You over 13. It’s like a weird after school special on speed. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Just not my cup of tea.
