Is It Any Good?

Andrew Lloyd Weber and his cohorts are up to their usual tricks in the third installment of this successful British import (in previous installments, most of the same crew helped pick new leads for West End productions of The Sound of Music and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with smashing results). Once again, there's some amazing talent -- with some "not so much" thrown in just for laughs. But this time around, the judges also have a second role to cast: Oliver himself.

Adding the kids to the mix might draw more interest from younger viewers, who can learn a lot by observing the casting process. But it will also assist adult viewers across the pond with name recognition, as most average Americans will have no idea who Nancy is. Oliver might be a classic in Britain, but in the States, it's not exactly a national treasure.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
