The Music, singers, score and conductor were wonderful beyond belief. 5/5. Whoever did the costuming had no idea what he was doing. A mosh of Elizibethan, Voodoo, and downright grimy. 0/5

Staging, costumes, singing, juggling, lighting, choreography and story were all epic. I would see it again if it were possible, but this was the last showing. I was in tears because the artistry and creativity were just awe inspiring.
