How was your experience?
I really wanted to like this. The show is compelling, the music is wonderful, the staging is great and the cast is obviously talented. BUT...they spent half the night screeching at each other. We were literally cringing during some of the songs, they were screaming so loud. IT WAS LIKE THEY WERE DOING THE WHOLE SHOW LIKE THIS - IN CAPS! NOT EVERY NUMBER HAS TO BE AN OVER THE TOP BRING THE HOUSE DOWN KIND OF THING. Especially in this show, which is so well written and has some wonderfully poignant moments. Bring it down a little. I was planning on seeing this a second time, but I don't want to subject myself again to this over the top screaming match that we watched.
