Had so much fun! Tiny theatre with a very simple stage. Actors are really good and the songs are catchy.

I didn't expect the small venue size at all. Parts of it were very entertaining, parts of it were a little high-school drama show-ish.

Outstanding cast. The new Luisa, Ali Ewoldt, is perfect for the role and is a great singer. On the evening we went, the understudy William Thomas Evans performed the role of El Gallo. He was excellent. The theater is small and intimate and we...continued

The Fantastics was as magical and touching now in 2013 as it was when I experienced it when in college in the '60's. The cast is perfect and talented beyond belief! I laughed and was deeply moved, seeing the play this time as "the parent" and no...continued

The show as OK. The theater was incredibly hot and the seats were very cramped. By midway through the show I was so uncomfortable I just wanted it to end so i could stretch and cool off.

The show is a bit slow but enjoyable. I thought the role of El Gallo was miscast, although the actor did his best. The sole girl in the show had a fantastic voice. There were two groups of school kids (teens) who were there who laughed out loud at...continued

It wasn't exactly what I expected but I did enjoy it. Being that I'm from the Backstreet Boys era I was excited to see Aaron Carter but I must say that you can see the effect drugs have had on him and his voice was really not great. The theater is...continued

longest running play on Broadway, a cute love story that seems tame and faded in comparison to today's dazzling hits. the music is still fresh and sophisticated at times. the stage was way too small for the actors who had to jump over props which...continued

Absolutely fun, a great time. Intimate setting but don't be fooled: what you're getting is no small-town show, it's big Off-Broadway talent in a minimalist show at a big-shot location. And getting so close that you can see the actors sweat from...continued

I saw this classic play many years ago. It is still fun, a kind of fairy tale with good musical. Cast was good. The theater is small, and at the Wed matinee was less than half full. I felt bad for the actors.

Lousy, acting, lousy jokes, lousy singing, just plain lousy. It was so bad and so out dated that I fell asleep.

The theatre is small and our seats were not the best but the show itself was good. The actors were great...it just sucked that we were all the way to the left side of the theatre so it felt like we missed seeing a lot of the show. fun musical!

Very entertaining! The seats were the best..front row, though there isn't a bad seat in the house as its a small theater. Enjoyed very much so did my teenage kids.
