At the beginning I thought I wasn't going to enjoy this but as it went on I to was drawn in. There are some excellent set pieces and the lead actress was very good. It is visually quite stunning and there are some nice songs. The singing was also very good. I have to say I really enjoyed and going by the applause of the audience so did they.

I saw it last night as well and enjoyed it. It has been cut a little since the first preview. The first act is a lot slicker as one member has already commented. As far as theatre goes it is an entertaining piece of work and it does get people talking. The sets are really good and I enjoyed the chamber of horrors start and end to the play. There are some nice songs Human Sacrifice and Hopeless about you stand out for me but the songs are all very easy on the ear. I think the topic for the musical is an interesting one and although it does not go into why the characters behaved like they did it is still a very entertaining night out!

I saw this tonight and I really enjoyed. It ran smoothly and both leads were very good. No stand out song as such but all in all a really good performance. It will be interesting to see what others think.

I'm afraid I found the musical a little flat. The mime artist was great and the actors/actresses did their best but I found the storyline weak and the songs weren't very memorable. Other musicals have had silly storylines but  I've enjoyed them because they've  been funny but I did not find this very funny. It's a shame as it is a lovely venue and there are obviously good performers.
