    Who doesn't love to see a genius? I love to see people doing things beyond my imagination. Just because of that factor, the series has 3 starts, just like that. The decision of having Anya Taylor-Joy as the main actress will ever confuse me. Although her performance was marvelous, it is really hard to believe her sometimes because it seems that she is modeling while acting. Because of this, the performance might feel "too much", or not natural. Either way,…

An outstanding performance of Hugh Jackman and an amazing introduction to Eddie Redmayne. "One Day More" is one of the best songs in this musical, that if you really hear it you will be able to feel the music and maybe even shiver.
