The screenplay of the musical that I’ve loved since 2018. Yet I’ve never seen it live, maybe one day.

After watching the movie on streaming, I was curious what the full, original story was. It turns out you can buy the actual book behind musicals, which I didn’t know, and is quite handy.

I now understand why people were mad about the movie, there’s definitely a few things missing.

I’m not sure if that’s true for other musicals, but this reads really well. I might read it again at some point.
