I saw it on a visit to London last month and thought it was just ok. Expectations were high because some people had seen it and loved it so much. I also thought Tim Minchin's score for Matilda was absolutely brilliant. I was hoping GHD would have that same magic. For me, it did not. It's all in the eye of the beholder, while my response was "meh" some ladies in our row were sobbing at the end. I don't think this is
Spring Awakening. Not because it was too edgy for me, not because it was too "rock". Its rock music didn't rock.
Kinky Boots. As others have noted, it's predictable. The English accents were so awful that a middle school cast of Oliver! would cringe. Then a character supposedly from Northampton used the phrase "stifle your yap." That is not a phrase that would be used in Northampton. Still, congrats to Cindy Lauper and team. They created something t

Going this afternoon. It's such a great show. If you've never seen Billy Elliot The Musical this is a good low-priced way to take in the show. Highly recommended!

Sounds like you want to do this as an adult. If that's true then you should perform any time there is an opportunity to do so. Also, watch the 'tude. Intended or not, it showed in your post. Be the guy everyone likes to work with.

It's a great show. If you're in or near one of the tour cities and you're thinking about going, get tickets.

Saw this and really liked it. My expectations werent all that high because of what some people have posted here. Great cast, more laughs than I expected A few songs stuck with me. It's not in my top five musicals ever, but it's worth seeing. I really enjoyed it

Saw it in Denver, it's wonderful. I also saw it on Broadway which is probably a better experience overall, but the tour is pretty close! Certainly worth seeing when it comes to your area.

"A Christmas Story" MSG back in December. Hope it returns to New York this year. It's a really great show, even better than I expected. "Les Miserables" last month in London. Still the original staging, still incredible. "Matilda" in London, very clever and entertaining score. "Pippin" - Broadway. Didn't expect to like it but I went because everyone has said such great things. I loved it.
