This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience is packed with “mind-bending, jaw-dropping brilliance” (Sunday Mirror). It will leave you “audibly wowed, cheering and gasping” (The Telegraph), as “visions of pure enchantment send shivers down your spine” (Rolling Stone). “It is out of this world, it’s magic, it’s a hit” (The Times).
