"Hi it’s Art, I went to see Fantastically Great
Woman who changed the world last night at the Kings theatre.
I liked the opening scene it was really fun and made me want to know what was going to happen next. The actors changed their costumes so quick it was really cool.
I learnt about Frida Kahlo at the art club I go to, I liked that bit the best because I learnt more about her. I also liked the musicians because at first I thought they were paintings but then they moved and started playing.
I recommend this play. I give it 5 stars. "
