This production is nearly all music and dancing; with very little dialogue, yet the story is told well without it. I may have to break down and buy the CD from the show; I would love to have the ability to hear "Mysterious Ways" and most of the other songs at any time.
Our seats were in the balcony, dead center. I think we were very lucky to have gotten them, seeing as how the tickets were bought at half-price that morning. The theater was so beautiful, with a gorgeous, huge, crystal chandelier, lots of architectural detail and red velvety seats. Photos are forbidden within the theater, else I would have some.
My granddaughter was not impressed with the show (at least that is what she said). At ten years old, "Beauty and the Beast" or "Lion King" would have suited her better. I would like to see "Lion King" too, but there were no seats offered for that. She sat there like a little trooper, except that she fell asleep in the last 20 minutes or so of the show, and we had to wake her up to go back on the subway for Lower Manhattan. I do hope that in the future, she will come to understand and appreciate what she was privileged to see at so young an age.
Edit: since I posted this, my granddaughter has admitted to her mother that she liked the show, and thought "Sophia" was her favorite singer. She also mentioned the song "Hell, No", and snickered at the use of the swear word in public.
