for a previous production "The storyline’s so melodramatic, duplicitous, and droll, it’s downright epic. This story’s got it all: Action, intrigue, ambition, betrayal—it’s practically Shakespeare on ice. With a sick sense of humor to boot. The all-singing all-dancing cast is all-fricking over the place...It’s not only clever in its mimicry of figure skating, it’s un-freekin-forgettable.
