It was a unique show, with no actual dialogue or lyrics. It was simply dance and instrumental music, some of which was original, with other parts based on the original Danny Elfman score (I liked the Danny Elfman stuff, which was instantly recognizable, but the newly added music from another songwriter seemed rather incongruous).
The stage adaptation was created and directed by Matthew Bourne, who had a lot of acclaim about 10 years ago when he debuted an all-male staging of Swan Lake (it was featured in the film Billy Elliot).

Although Edward Scissorhands was a fun show, and we enjoyed it, I wouldn't exactly call it the greatest theatre event we've been to. But we had a good time. Thanks Dana and Eric!
