My overall impression

I bought a ticket to this based off of the premise—a cheesy sitcom given the operatic treatment seemed like a recipe for success, but sadly it didn’t translate to stage particularly well.

While all the actors had excellent voices, the sitcom portion of the show seemed rather slapdash and the commercials felt shoehorned in and overly long (I’m guessing they took up about a third to almost half of the show). They were somewhat amusing though.

Also note that if you’re going to see the show, be sure to sit further back and/or to the sides, otherwise you will run the risk of having the supertitles being blocked by the actors.
