Excellent but not the same as being there in person
24 April 2019 | by Frankster200277See all my reviews

The only reason it got 9 instead of 10 is because it's not as impactful as being in the theatre. I saw a local production in Atlanta with a different cast and it was so wonderful and emotional being there in the theatre. This was still great to watch but didn't compare.
