Indulgent, Disappointing, Great musicians, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You’re a fan of fairly well known Latin songs performed mainly well, with some good dancing.

Don't see it if You’re expecting that all the cast can sing and dance well. If you’re expecting the named star to put on a tour de force - he’s hardly used.

Diverse, Rhythmic, Great vocals, Hard working dance ensemble, Reimagined

See it if you want to see a reimagined musical. It’s a celebration of determination, pride & heritage.

Don't see it if you’re expecting to see the original La Bamba’s outstanding singing & dancing with a meaningful story of persistence, gritty & troubled.

Absorbing, Great dancing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You like the vibe of Latin music. A very lively musical with great passionate singing and good dance routines.

Don't see it if You're more into plays than musicals or if you don't like Latin music.
