Delightful, Quirky, Great writing, Funny

See it if you like Roald Dahl's book. It's closer to the book than the movie. Very cleverly written lyrics too, expected from Tim Minchin.

Don’t see it if you don't like kids. Or Tim Minchin. Also, it may get a bit too dark for kids during a couple of scenes.
