I’ve been absolutely in love with this musical since I first heard the songs back in 2017 and was lucky enough to get to see the revival a few days ago at The Old Vic. Brilliant from start to finish!
(I was especially blown away by the amazing choreography and impeccable timing of things. It looked insanely difficult to pull off but everyone did a perfect job. Blown away!).

Will there be a DVD/Blu-ray released?

It would be so great to be able to relive the magic at home once the show sadly closes again.
