Hello....Just wondered if anyone is seeing this during previews and how it is shaping up. The subject matter seems ripe for use of music and wondered if there is much in it. I'm going next month.

Saw it last weekend. Almost all the music is underscoring. Really great show for the family.

Yes me too. It just struck me as being ripe for being a musical. Good fun otherwise though and loved all the Fritz Lang type imagery.
