I also thought it a little strange at first, especially since she doesn't get from the movie what seems to me to be the point of the stage show.

But "Is this a good/successful movie on its own" is as valid a question as "Is this a good/successful adaptation of its source." I would think the editors could have assigned the review to someone who's seen it on stage, but chose instead to send someone in cold. Though in normal times unless that was specifically the point, I'd think most reviewers would attempt to have some knowledge of the source material either going in or between viewing and writing.
