Entertaining and fun! Great music with some very talented voices. Creative use of lighting and interaction with the audience. Story and accents were a little hard to follow at times but overall recommended.

Lively performance with great acting, music, and dancing. Interesting story once they told more of it. Probably would have been more compelling if I could have understood more of the words and thereby had an easier time of following the story.

Loved it. My only regret is that I waited and only saw the last performance, wish I could have seen it twice. The music and dancing left me breathless.
