Quirky, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You liked the movie, are an Alex Brightman fan, if you don’t mind frequent foul language. I think teens will enjoy this show the most.

Also I thought this show was not appropriate for young kids. The frequent u... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Clever, A unique theatre experience

See it if you like getting up close and personal with the performers. The actors dance and sing throughout the theatre. The ambiance is magical.

Don't see it if you hate stobe lights and you feel uncomfortable being close to the actors. It probably would not be a child's preference to see this show.

Also I thought this was the most unique theatre experience I have ever had.... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if I am more of a musical person but I really was captivated by this play! If you enjoy adult themed thought provoking plays, see it!
