What I liked

The singing, the voices, the music, the sound, the staging— all excellent. Creative, fun, original. Obviously a brilliant director. The whole concept is great.

What I didn't like

The actual acting wasn’t impressive. For example, the actor who played Mortimer had presence and voice— but he wasn’t convincing, he wasn’t inhabiting or trying to inhabit the role. I realize this was intended as camp, but not entirely. He was one-dimensional.
The actress who played Edward II was well-chosen FOR THIS COMCEPT but she didn’t try hard and I couldn’t understand her delivery.

My overall impression

Worth Seeing for the production, music, staging and creativity!!!
