It just lacked originality. Boring. It was not without redeaming features --- the mother superior role was well done by an obvious musical theater professional --- but in general, there are better ways to spend an evening.

It really followed the story. The costumes were beautiful. The actors were wonderful and the main character had a wonderful voice. I would recommend it highly. We loved it!
