Advantages: you'll like it if you are a train spotter
Disadvantages: there will be loads of train spotters there
I guess i went with false expectations about this musical . I love music and musicals and all things like that. I was guessing and hoping that starlight would be worth seeing .
I can't say it was all bad , coz it wasn't . Its bad points - it had no story , a few races , and lots of confusion , also i was sat in the circle and i couldn't even see all the races so had no idea what was happening . I thought the singing was good esp an duet by a man and a woman . Major bad point ... i had no idea what was going on , i may be dense of something , but i was a bit bored and felt most of the whole cast songs sounded the same .
After all me dissing of this show ... i must say it was worth seeing coz it was music and music is great . I don't think i would see it again unless i won tickets or something like that .
I also have the opinion that you really need to eb younger to go and see it . You would probably have a beter idea of what was going on . Also being about trains wasn't my idea of fun coz i am not really into trains .
I did find it confusing and i did get a bit bored , but i enjoyed the night out with my friends and i enjoyed the quality of the singing , it was good entertainment , but i would put it near the bottom of my list of favourite musicls.
Sorry ... that is my honest opinion.
I would go and see it if yuo havn't seen it , just coz i think it's worth seeing if you like music/musicals , just don't go in thinking it'll be the best thing u ever see .
