Must see, Great acting, Great staging, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You want to see one of the musicals of the year. The staging is brilliant & the seamless way the three stories are intertwined, stunning.

Music is beautiful, Very moving once it picks up steam

See it if u r up for a 3 family, 3 hour drama w gorgeous songs. I want to hear the score again.

Don't see it if u don't have the patience to wait. It took a while to get going, but when it did, I was hooked. I cried & cared about these characters.
