The musical has won Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score. The local version, directed by Rick Lyon - part of the original Broadway cast - is a "fantastic one" according to reviewer Melissa Giordano.
She writes: "Everyone sounded amazing together as well as, of course, individually. They each had their moment as the majority of the cast had multiple characters to play. This was an incredible feat as each of the puppets had distinct personalities and each member of the cast was on point."
