Slow, Original, Confusing, Strange, Great singing

See it if you like any musical. storyline is hard to follow and takes place in Savannah. light opera? family strife? mystery? mystical?make sense?

Don't see it if you expect a coherent experience. everyone singing on key. more than a piano. well-defined characters. reason for so many in cast.

Cliched, Confusing, Excruciating, Insipid, Uninspired

See it if you have the time for a meaningless, unsatisfying adventure in the theatre. Time better spend wandering the neighborhood.

Don't see it if There is really nothing to recommend about this show. Sorry!
