Quirky, Refreshing, Hilarious, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you love musicals like taboo which have a sexy but darker side to them

Don't see it if if you prefer a more classic style musicals

Disappointing writing, Great design

See it if you're a Pet Shop Boys fan and want to see a production of a show they wrote the music for.

Don't see it if you want to see a well-written piece of theatre.
