The songs are the real soul of the show, although tunes are at times reminiscent of Disney movies and the lyrics sound like simplified versions of Rent’s. The storytelling is simple, but effective. Songs simply flow out of Marsa’s life, as much as her life can be traced back and pinned down in songs – they are one and the same thing. One just feels sorry not to know the lyrics, as the temptation to sing along is quite strong. Her independence, confidence, and unconditional passion for music were intimidating and hard for her partners to handle, even though Marsa’s very aim in life was to share her love for music with other people. “How can you love me if you’re not loving me?”, she sings. Under the veil of glitter and naivety there are some beautifully deep gems to take home.” – A Younger Theatre
