Thought-provoking, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if I recommend seeing this eye opening show. I thought it would be like Mean Girls with teenagers; it wasn't. Good story & music, a lot of fun.

Don't see it if If you're super conservative and don't have an open mind. Adult themes.

Clever, Confusing, Great staging, Intense, Quirky

See it if you like puppetry shows that are artistically done. The visuals were great. I enjoyed the eeriness it produced in me. Story was confusing.

Also Artistically it was amazing. Especially the beginning when it gave me ... Read more Read less

See it if you like remakes. I enjoyed Bette Midler in the show. But friends tell me the other actress was just as good. Lots of fun and good singing
