This show sucks. It was just terrible! Even the lighting was bad. It was as if the house lights were on the whole time. I should have known when the program said no intermission to take an aisle seat. The leads were good but they shouldn't have been forced to dance, that should have been left to the belly dancers who were fantastic. I should have left with the others after the bellydance scene ended. So much of this musical should have been cut when it was adapted from the screen to the stage. Yep, this bad play was a bad movie with the same name. For some reason Mardie Millit wore a body stocking even though she is very attractive. It was distracting as it made her belly button stand out from the other women on stage. She is a great singer & should be in better material than this show. The narrarator was completely unnecessary & while a good actor his monologues were too long. How do things like this make it to the stage?
