The songs in some parts were in odd juxtaposition to the mood of the story, particularly in the first half. The second half seemed to work better as the story progressed.

Great show. Great music. A bit sad but did have a happy ending.
A very tall man sat in front of me, but I was lucky that there were 2 empty seats near me so I just moved over.
It was great.

Excellent performance of a decent musical- exceeded my expectations. Surprisingly the theater was only half full. The second act dragged a little but overall the show was very enjoyable.

Excellent show. Phenomenal singing and dancing. Lots of humor even though the story is sad. A few changes from the original story confused me. Great seats. Go see it!!!

The musical was wonderful. People get it stuck in their head that if you didn't see the Broadway cast you are seeing a second rate production. I found that this was not... continued

The play was very entertaining, based more on the book than the screen play, but equally great. I loved many of the songs that were sang, and the acting was great

I loved the show! The entire cast gave a wonderful performance and it was a pleasure to hear each and every one of them sing. The story line is a little mature for an audience under the 13.Thanks Goldstar for the seating was great.
