Inventive Plot, creative characters and overall an enjoyable musical. The Nightmare before Christmas has enchanced Tim Burton's status as a genius at musicals.
People of all ages will enjoy this funny, twisted and imaginative play that sees two holidays clash with a good outcome of confusion and scary presents.
The main character Jack Skellington (voiced by Jonny Depp) may seem scary, but is a gentleman which will make people see the odd mixture of emotions Tim Burton can fuse together.
You will be laughing or admiring the fabulous music created through the play starting with "this is Halloween"! which introduces the monsters of all kinds and makes them seem like normal folk trying to live everyday life.
Overall Tim Burton has taken something scary like Halloween and twisted it with music, singing, inventive characters and a funny plot to produce one of the best animated musical I have seen.
