The staging is very minimal which works with some shows but I did feel a little bit underwhelmed by the scene changes and emptiness of the stage. However the songs and singing were a completely different matter. I loved the songs, they were well crafted and very catchy without being a typical "showtune". The singing was also excellent, especially from leads Hades, Persephone and Demeter. The chorus actors were also on top form and kept the show moving cleanly and meaningfully to its conclusion. The only character who left me uninterested was Zeus, more neurotic than king of the gods, but maybe that was what he was going for. I am a self confessed "disliker" of musicals but I really enjoyed this and hope that it picks up the following that I think it deserves. Bit more of the wow factor for the staging please. I have been recommending to everyone so hopefully the theatre will be full when word gets out how good the music is.
