Resonant, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you like good theatre play and beautiful music. Singing part feels like sound track in films. Clever choreograph is joy to watch.

Don't see it if you want today’s style music, colourful & dreamy costumes and all singing dancing musical. It’s more of straight drama play with songs.
