I agree that this looks iffy at best. I do like musicals, but I never saw the Broadway show of this, which seemed both surreal and unpleasant. The one thing that gives me hope is director Tom Hooper, who has directed a number of things that I really like, including the very good miniseries Daniel Deronda from way back in 2002, as well as the movies The King's Speech, Les Miserables, and The Danish Girl. Based on Hooper's track record I'll see it, but.....???
