Important, A lot of content, Fast moving, Tremendous cast!, Sung-through musical

See it if you want to see the best of community/unity. Without doubt the show is wonderfully driven by it's strong robust score!

Don't see it if you want to see a thorough deep/involved interpretation of this piece of history.

Historical, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if you want a story of community jam-packed full of different styles and concepts.

Don't see it if you aren't open to new styles of theatre. This production felt experimental with a lot going on throughout.
