How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We went expecting a truly camp experience, but came away with a very satisfying "realistic" musical drama. The cast is uniformly terrific, the sets, costumes, etc very professional. My one qualm is that the mother's characterization is that of a very protective, but not crazed and insane woman as she is portrayed in the previous versions. If you're looking for a very campy experience, there's a good chance you'll come away disappointed. If you're looking for a deeper theatrical time, I think you'll have a ball!
