Advantages: fast, exciting
Disadvantages: bad story, acting and costumes. Small
Starlight Express is fine for under 10s, but I think that anyone over about 12 will be bored to death. The story is non-existent, the songs are unmemorable and the costumes and staging are incredibly 80s. Little kids will like the fast rollerblading, but that is about it. I was very disappointed when I saw it for my 13th birthday, as I had seen Cats the previous year, which is much better. However, as a fun diversion for young children, it is ok. If you have a choice, see the Lion King instead!
