    Fun to Watch

    As someone who has not seen "Pirates" before, I found this version to be fun and playful. I enjoyed the music and I also enjoyed the fact that the cast, especially the Pirate King, play to the audience as well as the orchestra. The big negative I have is the audio towards the end was not very good and I had trouble hearing and understanding the words.
