Much much more than a stage musical. Equal parts history, novel, and manifesto for social fairness. Don't let the size put you off and read it now.
Tougher going than I remember – maybe because it's unabridged? Some of the preachy/speechy parts are hard to slog through... but even so, what a joy to reread this, and what a beautifully done translation.
