Great score, High calibre singing, Packaged brilliantly, Has legs, Vastly entertaining

See it if you want au courant, lens into 14th century Edward 2 court translated into glam rock storytelling with eye popping spectacle & prod. values

Don't see it if you don't like intelligible rock music, you're offended by sexual situations, or leather, feathers, & spandex give you the vapours Read more

Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Masterful

See it if You want to see an amazing performance with an amazing cast. Great rock score meets Shakespere, meets Game of Thrones.

Don't see it if You are homophobic, don't like rock or are a "Broadway" snob. If you are the person who is fashionably late, you will sit the steps. Read more

"Ambitious, sprawling, and unruly...The head spins with all we are asked to keep straight...Throughout, director Klein whips the 18-member company into a whirlwind of action, but varying acting styles and often highly stylized and eccentric British and French accents make for a shifting tone...Maybe we are meant to embrace the inconsistency of it all as part of the experience, but what unfortunately is nearly lost in the shuffle is the story."

"The score, a pleasing pastiche of styles ranging from Medieval to contemporary pop, is terrific. As the show unfolded, other notable crowd-pleasers sprang to mind, like 'Rent,' 'The Rocky Horror Show,' and—dare I say it?—'Hamilton.' Ransom has expertly distilled a vast amount of material, roughly spanning 30 years, into a cogent, absorbing narrative...This unpolished yet insightful 'More Than All the World' pulses with a raw, urgent intensity that is undeniable."
