Apparently its all singing for 2 and a half hours, rather than dialogue thrown in for good measure like Sweeney Todd, may give this a miss and wait for DVD.
Think I will too. Part of me really wants to see this as I've heard so much praise for this and the stage production. But at the same time I switched off Sweeny Todd after about 15 minutes as I couldn't stand them singing most lines!
I love musicals like 'top hat', 'Oliver!' 'The wizard of oz' and 'mamma mia' that have a few songs here and there but I'm not a fan of more stage musicals like 'cats' and 'les miserables' that seem to be made up entirely of singing! I really want to change my mind though
