Yes, I knew it was a big Broadway hit and...that's about it. Apart from the iconic poster. To be honest, I'd barely given it two thoughts before seeing the trailer. As I said in my post, I'm sure if I actually spent a thought on the title beforehand, I would've realized that it's obviously a grim story, but I didn't, so I expected something more like standard musical fare (Rodgers & Hammerstein-ish).
As I said though, I'm interested in seeing this now.
