Fluffy, Overrated, Banal, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if you want to hear Andrew Lloyd Webber's most famous songs with no sets and very little costumes in a concert-like setting

Don't see it if revues are not your thing or you find Sir Webber's self-indulgent interruptions irritating

Simple staging, Insightful, Great singing

See it if you know ALW's music and want to hear it out of context (by INCREDIBLE singers!), introduced with video snippets from the Lord himself!

Don't see it if 2.5 hours of ALW music will drive you crazy or if revues without lots of fancy staging don't interest you. Read more

Entertaining, Great singing, Indulgent

See it if You enjoy a ALW's-greatest-hits-review. You enjoy watching a documentary about ALW. The singing was great. Staging was barebones.

Don't see it if You want a musical that tells a story. This is ALW-lite. ALW (via pre-recorded interviews) introduces each set w/ a little background info. Read more

"Work remains to be done for this show to fulfill its potential. However, the unusual format of 'Unmasked' is clearly viable. And it would be wrong to lose sight of the fact that 'Unmasked' already offers a considerable quantity of surefire, quality entertainment."
