Absorbing, Ambitious, Great singing, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you want to see an inventive staging of a peculiar musical that tackles an unconventional subject with a wonderful lead performance.

Don't see it if you want to see a big, splashy show with set changes and a big cast. The show is odd, but the cast really sells it despite their size.
