Do I sense another Tim Burton/Johnny Depp film collaboration in the near future, based upon this?

:emoji_relaxed:~ This was a beautiful play. I loved it from the music and the performances. The actor who played Poe has delivered an excellent performance. It was heart touching. Thank you for sharing this musical Dr Omega.:emoji_hugging:

:emoji_relaxed:~ It definitely sounds something that they would do. And I'd be down to see it.

Life is moments you can't understand
And that is life

Holding to the ground
As the ground keeps shifting
Trying to keep sane
As the rules keep changing"
