A total gem of a musical! I went solely on the recommendation of a friend and am soooo glad I did! Outstanding cast and set design. I'm actually considering seeing it again with another friend.

Show was very entertaining. The singing was phenomenal! Show started at 7:30pm and ended about 10:15pm, so don't plan on having time for dinner afterward.

Once again! A great perfomance from a professional cast. I saw the play in Los Angeles and had to see it again while in O.C. The same cast...out performed themselves. Great looking cast, I must say. Thank you for the outstanding service Goldstar....continued

We had a wonderful time. The play was funny, sad and very well done. Many open seats in front of us, so we moved down at intermission to much closer seats. That made a big difference!

Very pretty show, especially the lighting. Strong performances all around. But the sound was very poor - I had a hard time understanding the first 20 minutes of the show. The theater was filled with speakers, but they only seemed to be using the...continued

Very talented cast. Bad acoustics though, it was very difficult to understand the words to most of the songs.
The emotion was good enough though to figure out what the song was about.

As an avid theater goer I refused to have anything to do with this musical ever since it's Broadway debut. However, I thought it would be a nice Thanksgiving treat for my Girlfriend and our sisters. I was quite pleased with the show and the...continued

This was one of the BEST musicals I have ever seen, especially at Orange County's Performing Arts Center. The Singing was AMAZING, the dancers can REALLY dance (not that 'fake' dancing that so many actors and singers think they can do to fool the...continued
