One of the best things I've seen. The music isn't immediately catchy- it's actually pretty tricky and quite conversational and there aren't really many big singalong moments.

It will depend on what the actors are doing between shows. They won't be obliged to do autographs although I'm sure they would if they're around. But definitely not any of the child performers - they're not allowed to... More
