Delightful, Funny, Fluffy, Uneven, Cute

See it if Light comedy w/plenty of song, dance & humor. Jealous queen, mute king, timid prince, spunky princess & colorful court. Strong lead actors.

Don't see it if Suitable for kids, but too long for younger kids. Weaker acting by the minor characters. I enjoyed the addition of some gender fluidity.
