If your children haven’t been to the Buell Theatre at the DCPA, this is one show you can take a chance on. The children in the audience loved the whacky, eccentric characters, the weird sets and costumes. It’s a family show that moves fast with laughter, toe-tapping energy.
The reviews for the Broadway show were less than glowing, but it is what it is – a engaging musical with dance, song and creative costumes, accompanied by a silly storyline that teaches humility and acceptance to differences and change. It was delightful. Children of all ages laughed it up and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the evening’s dark and dead characters.
