Gunshots! Flames! Shirtless dancing hunks! And that’s just the first five minutes. This eye-wateringly bombastic musical has all the production values, subtlety levels and narrative logic of a Donald Trump rally. Thoughtful, incisive drama? Er, no. Winningly OTT kitsch with killer song delivery? Hell yes. Come for the copious dry ice and cheese-tastic effects – stay for the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” encore singalong.
