Poor music, lack of stage feel. Much sounded the same and there is no soul, no sense of awe, just a sense of notes, voices and a band going through the motions.
I think that this arena staging of a theatre musical does not work. It would have been better filmed in the theatre where they might be more sense of emotion, of the characters and of the story line, Some of it reminded me of a junior school play where there are too many people on stage and not enough s happening.
Very very disappointing and we have not watched all of it yet. Not sure whether we can face more of the samey samey stuff.
