Although I didn't walk out humming any of the score, the show was great fun!

What a funny, relatable and gloriously laugh out loud for all ages from young teen and up. There seem to be no bad seats in this lovely old venue and many of the (Broadway) cast members hung around in the lobby before the show so the play seemed...continued

I LIKED IT BUT, I FOUND THE ERECTION SONG INAPPROPREIATE FOR CHILDREN. I MADE A DATE WITH MY DAUGHTER TO ATTEND THIS PLAY. AND SOME OF THE MATERIAL I DID NOT UNDERSTAND. WILL BARFY WAS MY FAVORAITE CHACRACTER.

Charming, original musical that is a delight from start to finish. It's great to see the original cast--a rarity in L.A.

I wish I could go back and see it a second time. We are very lucky to have the original Broadway cast. They know these quirky and wonderful characters as their own. In no time you believe they are the wonderful outsider children they represent....continued

Fun show. Would benefit from a smaller venue. The improvisational bits were the most entertaining.

Second time I saw it, first at the OPAC which has much better sound quality then the Wadsworth. Other than that it was a wonderful experience both times.

It's a cute show, but wholesome humor and puns are not really my sort of thing, so I never laughed out loud, except at amusement over how hilarious the people around me found it.

Do not miss the opportunity to see the original broadway cast. We rarely get that here in LA. This ensemble is flawless. I experienced the same excitement as when I first saw it in New York. You cannot imagine how funny this is!

My four friends were taken aback when the ticket read $40 and I had charged them $50. Unfortunately we were on the very last row at the very end of the row and couldn't see too well and couldn't hear too well. It's a darling show. I just wished...continued
