Really enjoyable show

I had no idea what this show was about when I booked it, but really enjoyed it, and would go again.

Violet was not "my cup of tea". There was too much singing in places when dialogue was far more appropriate.

Amazing cast but horrible music/story/direction
20 January 2019
No emotional weight to any of the events. The audience never becomes invested in anything happening on stage. Great acting and singing by most everyone. The problem is entirely them being let down by a framework devoid of any depth.

I enjoyed the story but felt that sometimes the sings went on for too long and i also felt that the show should have had an interval to break it up.
