I agree with this issue. It was rather as if there were 2 shows in there going in opposite directions. There was the big family musical spectacle complete with pirates swinging from chandeliers and an adult piece examining the difficulties of relationships, loss, etc. I'd prefer they went for the latter but I suspect they think there's more money to be made from the former.

I've always been a supporter. I saw it 3 times in Leicester and enjoyed it every time
The changes made about halfway through the run at the Curve were very positive imo, and while I love the show I can acknowledge that there were some elements that needed further improvement. I'm just not sure that Gary Barlow should be responsible for these improvements...
The subject matter is always going to be difficult. Because it's based on history there is very little room for plot alterations. The Peter Pan aspect will appeal to kids and families, yet in reality the story is quite adult in it's themes. It'll take a lot of skill to resolve these tensions.
