The fact that 56 people on this app rated this musical as "excellent" is completely mind-blowing. First and foremost: there is no plot. The entire production is a compilation of corny childlike songs strung together poorly. Sure, there are some great voices, but you just...More

You can sense Lloyd Weber's hand from top o bottom, the play is a bit long with a nice intermission, there is a nice bar and a few stuff to nibble but enough for a theater (you don't go to this places to eat right?)....More

We were certainly glad that we were able to see this musical on Broadway during its limited run. It is quite obvious why, after seeing it, that it ran for so long previously. Entertaining from start to end. The performers all seemed to really enjoy...More
