Sat 3rd row center. This is my second time seeing the show - this time I brought a friend who is also a fan of the 80's. We enjoyed the entire show. Very clever premise and the performers looked like they were having fun too. Don't miss it!

Oh so nostalgically good. Loved the first half; it was full of laughter and emotion. The second half dragged on just a bit, but still good. Anyone who remembers the 80's or was born in that decade must see Mixtape :)

Thanks to Goldstar, I was able to afford to see Mixtape for a second time. This show is absolutely wonderful....the entire cast really gets into it and brings you back to great days of the 80's. A special note of recommendation to Joy Yandell...continued

They were absolutely fabulous. My husband and I are in
our 60's, not exactly the type of people you'd think would go to something involving music in the 80's. Some of the songs were new to us, others rang-a-bell and
I sang along (my husband...continued

This was a fun event!! My girlfriend flew in from MD for a convention and the other friend lives in SD (I'm from the OC) so we made it a night downtown. Great show and drinks downtown! Interactive as we did sing along (and so did the rest of the...continued

As a member of the Boomer generation who worked too much during the X generation years, many of the references didn't register, but show was entertaining nonetheless. Now I would like the Boomer show to do a rerun.

Entertaining, good energy, well-performed, excellent voices. I was concerned that with a live rock band the sound might be too loud as it usually is in other rock plays I've seen, but the sound level was perfect.

Great show. We would have enjoyed it more if we had been kids in the 80's, as we didn't get the references to the cartoons or most of the TV shows. Good acting. Sometimes the sound wasn't that great, though. A couple times, it was hard to hear the...continued

High energy. Fast paced. Several nice voices. Forgetable music. Had to really like and remember the 80's to get the references. Uncomfortable seating.

It is just a bunch of middle-aged people happily singing along to popular songs from the 80's, making the odd 80's cultural reference, here and there. There is no story, just a long, long mixtape of songs.

As a previous reviewer said, ""[We'll] go again, and that says it all!" It was a gloriously madcap, happy, warm, reinvigorating evening! Best "Pick-Me-Up" this side of....what ever comes second!

Fantastic seats. The cast was so very professional and into it. The setting was perfect. All the little things-hair, clothes, dances, etc. from the 80's as well as the songs. Having the orchestra on stage and some of the musicians actually taking...continued

From description I didn't know what to expect, but from the opening scene it was awesome! Loved the music, comedy and costumes and it reminded me of my kids in their teens, how they dressed and the songs and groups they loved. I had forgotten...continued
