The show was just ok. I wouldn't go see it again, but I'm glad I did see it when I had the chance. The music was good, loud, energetic, and intense. THe plot however lacked everything. The plot was hard to follow, difficult to to find interest in the story, certainly could have used more drama/action. THe music saved it.. the plot brought it down.
