Great singing, Great orchestra, Concert version, Great music & lyrics

See it if Great concert. Strong voices, gorgeous music. Great blend of western and Chinese music.

Don't see it if you want a full show. Since the concert values were so good, I really wanted at least a narrator to fill in the story line. Read more

Good music & singing, Talented cast & musicians, Poor writing, Bland & predictable story

See it if you're primarily interested in the music, which is by far the best part of the show.

Don't see it if you care about the story or song lyrics, which are broad brush strokes & give no insights into the 1 human character in the whole piece. Read more

Great singing, Work-in-progress

See it if You don't mind works in progress where the actors are reading lines from a script, the singing was good

Don't see it if You are expecting a fully staged musical

Ambitious, Exquisite, Great music

See it if A beautiful, layered, complex score is music to your ears. The use of a traditional erhu is haunting.

Don't see it if A musical in early form doesn't excite you. There is no set, no movement, just talented musicians and singers/actors running through this.

Thought-provoking, Great singing, Relevant, Incomplete

See it if you are willing to see a work-in-progress and judge it on that basis.

Don't see it if you expect a fully-staged production with sets, costumes, etc. The show was delivered in a cabaret environment. Read more
