I am genuinely intrigued to see this - to see what the fuss is about.

I do think the snippets of "reviews" outside the theatre are quite hilarious including one from Scissor Sisters!

It's funny how my friends who don't go to the theatre a lot but do enjoy horror movies really loved this show, and how my friends who do go to the theatre a lot are almost entirely underwhelmed by it.

Funny because I go to the theatre a lot, and really enjoyed it! Am I the only one who falls between these two groups? It's a confusing place to be! XD

No, me too! I thought it was entertaining - not something I'd want to see again, but I enjoyed it...
