Refreshing, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Fantastic reimagining of the show- staging unique, performances nuanced. This removed problematic elements from original which is great.

Don't see it if Quite topical- not a kid friendly musical or one for those who aren’t open minded.
