Incredible!
14 August 2018 | by barberic-695-574135See all my reviews

This was the first musical we ever saw live, 30 odd years ago and it is still as good today as it was then. Brilliant story, fabulous music. The songs stir emotions and have not suffered by not being sung by the original cast. Really well acted. Serious entertainment. Select surround sound and turn it up loud, just incredible. Will we be watching it again? Absolutely.
