It has been a while since I saw this production, but speaking to a couple that saw it only a month ago, it doesn't seem to have changed in that it is still universally held by all that have seen it as a marvellous musical. The idea is pretty unique, and whilst it may sound naff, it comes off very well.
Trains, rollerskates and some very moving songs are the orders of the day and I can honestly say that I enjoyed every second of this modern classic. No wonder this show has been so successful: it has all the ingredients of great family entertainment and it works on all levels. It is very dynamic and active, one of the runways goes all around the stalls - the theatre must have taken ages to adapt to it!
