I know I saw this as a kid, but I forgot most of it (except the songs), so I'm counting it as a first-time viewing. I love the set-design, which is the most gorgeous theatrical version of grimy-era New York that you can imagine. The songs are absolutely bangers. The cast gives stellar, stylized performances across the board. Audrey II is a fantastic creature design, brought to life in a way that makes you long for the days of puppetry. And the ending kaiju sequence is glorious.
