Seriously. It was the best show I’ve seen in ages. (Laughter, tears, chills – utter brilliance)
The show is set in Germany is 1891 and it follows the lives of several teenagers as they explore the issues of sexuality – both opposite and same sex relationships, religion, conformity, incest, suicide, abortion and a pile of other delightful topics. The music is brilliant and the lyrics are both funny and heart-rending. Here’s the thing…this show is depressing as hell and also weirdly hopeful.
