Every so often you see something in theatre so arresting, so unlike anything you've seen before, that you want to grab strangers in the street and tell them to book tickets. Daily Express A magical and ravishingly distinctive fusion of the theatrical arts. Independent A tour de force. Time Out

There is so much magic in this slim volume. The story, a huge improvement over the original, is delightful and unafraid to go to some very dark places, just as it does not hesitate to leap to heights of dizzying joy. The lyrics are witty and sardonic, with the occasional sparkling turn of phrase ("he was one edible / delectable / muscular cake!"). My heart aches at the thought that I might very well never see this show, unless the gods of Broadway should smile upon us all by some happy chance - but it soothes the pain somewhat to know that we have a full document of it in this libretto and in the upcoming cast recording (the previews on iTunes are gorgeous! So exciting!).

A beautiful story. I only wish there was more than the few song demos on sound cloud so that I could fully experience the lyrical magic. That is the only reason I've given it for instead of five stars.

I highly recommend buying The Light Princess original cast recording, and the playbook is absolutely necessary for listeners who want to really understand the story and follow along. The music is wonderful and deserves five stars; the story, however, is lacking in plot punchiness.
