I drove down to LA to see it. I think the only part of the score I don’t like is the courtroom. But I liked the beginning moments when the canon goes off and smoke billows over the orchestra. I was fascinated by the burning set and the final scene with the three on stage as the lights dimmed gave me the rare spine tingle.
I do think the previous shows of les Mis and miss Saigon set up an expectation of a huge musical, which this is not and pirate queen tried to do. But I think MG is a far better musical than a lot that do make it to broadway.
