Absorbing, Enchanting, Exquisite, Great writing

See it if want the plot from Evita mixed with music from Les Mis. Its a terrifically composed and engaging show about the life and passion of Napoleon

Don't see it if you have a hard time with shows that jump around in time, or if you want a family show. Its very dark and has lots of mature themes.

Original, Absorbing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if You like seeing little-known historical figures come alive in musicals, you like an epic-sounding score with lots of drums.

Don't see it if History bores you; repeat use of drums gives you feelings of boredom rather than epicness, you didn't like "The Pirate Queen"
