The reunion part was a huge success and joy. Unfortunately I could not say the same with Once on this Island. It was OK I guessed. The songs were herald by my friends a very catchy but I was underwhelmed. I must admit the song "Mama will provide" was catchy and upbeat. I liked it but the other songs were wanting. I was in fact sleepy on some of the slow songs.
The voices of the actors were good and broadway quality indeed. Special mention to Lea's voice. It was full and bitch she still got it. Alex also delivered a broadway worthy belt on her number.
It was a theatre in the the round which was interesting. They had real sands in the middle. All of the seats were relatively "good" seats. We sat at the very last row but we were still close enough.
Lea and Alex were the saving graces so I give this a 3 stars out of 5.
PS. the photos were taken prior to the start of the show. the cast were doing odd things.
