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

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... 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... 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... 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.

Boy meets girl with a quirky sequel when reality sets in
The setting was intimate. It was like having your own troubadours perform for you.

I was surprised how small the theater was. So small, the actors didn't need a mic to be heard. But this was a good thing; not a bad seat in the house and its not often... continued

The cast was, by and large, excellent. The character of "El Gallo/The Narrator" was played with aplomb by an actor with a fabulous voice and stage presence. Though the... continued

This is not your typical Musical. The theater is really small- which was fine- so there are no bad seats (only 5 rows). The show had some really funny moments (the actor... continued
