While the previous stories were mostly played for laughs, the last two teens tell more poignant tales.
We found this musical to be fresh and exciting with great songs and back stories that fully flesh out each character in a very short amount of time so that you really care for them all by the end.
In the past few years, we've realized that often we enjoy the smaller plays and musicals more than the big professional productions offered by Mirvish and Dancap. I hope this play returns for a longer run as I would really like to see it again. Or at least put out a CD so that I can add the music to my collection.
