I think it looks surprisingly pretty good, at least on a visual level.

Consequently, it's going to feel kind of weird seeing people sing in this story. It doesn't really strike me as the kind of story that leads to people singing suddenly.
Do you people know this is a musical that has been running for over 20 years on Broadway????
