It did not disappoint. The costumes, songs, and story were all beautiful and richly layered. It was at it's core a story of 'rags to riches.' It was told in a unique and engaging way, the musical numbers enhanced that. There were other elements that made it relatable and hard hitting. Things like embracing yourself, and facing people's prejudices. It was inspiring!
You leave the theater wanting to do something amazing, something crazy.
I'm trying to think of one negative thing to say about it but I can't think of any. The cast of characters is as colorful and inspiring as the movie itself.
All the circus acts, performers, and colors were done so well, it's basically like going to one. I was spellbound! I knew I was going to love it, but I didn't think I would love it this much. I honestly don't know what else to say except go see it!!!
My favorite songs.
'This Is Me' made me tear up, I'll admit it. I'm sorry this review was a bit on the short side. I've been strapped for time. Basically, it's Magnificent and I highly recommend!
Oh, Alexa you once asked me which song would fit Cynfael. 'The Other Side', is something I could definitely see happening with him and Chayse.
