I saw the show in London, just before Christmas last year and was so impressed, I'm going to see it again in Cardiff...this time, taking my kids and husband with me!
The storyline was nothing like I expected. It's futuristic and reminiscent of Rush's '2112' where rock music is banned. I wonder if that's where Ben Elton got the inspiration for it?
Some of the costumes are tatty, in a goth/grunge/punky sort of way, but they're meant to be. They reflect the characters identities...they're rebellious bohemians after all.
The dancing, singing and music are excellent and my mouth was agog at the opening scenes!
I doubt seasoned musical goers would enjoy it, but us rock fans will 'get' the concept entirely. It's funny, romantic, yes cheesy, but it ROCKS!!!
Highly recommended :)
