So pleased to have seen this production on final day, I was absolutely enthralled by it.

Personally it ticked all boxes as to what I enjoy in a musical. Cast were excellent and storyline and music both strong and emotional. This Human says a resounding YES!!

Considering this was an experiment I'll up my score to a 5.

I saw this musical last night 25th february at the arts theatre. The cast worked hard to breathe life into the improbable story, although I know some of it is based on real events. The story of a child at an air force base with a bucket on her head, and who lives with the greenham common women, and who chats to an american airman etc it is tediously dull. Moreover many successful musicals contain some songs which stand up on their own merit so you would buy or download a track or a cd. The computer generated music here is dire unmemorable, provokes no emotion. The predicted singing child appears at the end. Great cast, time for them to move on I think

The short answer: boring, banal and uninspired. Computer generated perhaps, but still human curated. And, sadly, not at all impressive.

The score was a veritable mishmash of disjointed musical theater styles from the 1960s to "Rent". The book failed to convey the underlying premise, "What if a wounded soldier had to learn how to understand a child in order to find true love?". Instead, it begged the question: What if an unsuspecting audience was scammed into believing that a computer generated musical actually had creative merit?

I give the cast a rousing round of applause for giving it their all, but the book, words and music leave a lot to be desired.
