Did we miss something on diversity?

Good, silly and entertaining

This is an incredible musical, Donny Osmond is fantastic and it's a very silly light hearted story. This is an old testament bible story, there are some revealing costumes and nods to other things but kids aren't going to pick too much of it up and if they are picking it up then they've seen much worse then this! Primary schools do this musical and the only thing they need to change is the costumes and some adult choreography so its very appropriate for all ages.

An uncomfortable watch

This is uncomfortably sexualised. It ruined the music for me.

This title has:

Too much sex
