What I liked

The songs, the music, and the overall flow. For a story that is somewhat sad it leaves you with a good feeling of nostalgia.

What I didn't like

I’d love to see it turned into a movie!

My overall impression

I loved it! Very cinematic, which I don’t know if it’s a good thing to say of a play, but for me it was. The play starts with a surprisingly good and catchy song and throughout the play we’re regaled with songs that serve as background to the male’s main character journey as a writer. It’s very visual. Katherine King is just awesome and the director made a great job working with only one stage: with a few movements of the actors, we immediately know that we’re somewhere else. Highly recommendable!
