Outstanding performance; very well staged; good music, but not as I remembered it from seeing it previously both on the stage and many times in the movie.

The lead actors were fantastic! The storyline pacing seemed a bit rushed, but the performances were excellent.

From start to finish the entire musical was electric. Although the time period was foreign to youngsters seating beside us, I'm assuming they missed a lot of the dialogue. However, they too thoroughly enjoyed the choreography, music, and entire...continued

The dancing was outstanding. the female lead was very good-- Harold Hill- male lead- wqas just a B. Why did she change the costumes to the mid 50s? Overall it was very enjoyable, but not the greatest.

We enjoyed the show. I love the musicals in the round because they use the aisles, stage, etc. It was well performed and Kate Baldwin had a wonderful voice. It is worth seeing.

A good, solid production. Always fun to see a musical at Arena and how they're going to stage it. Kate Baldwin was a terrific Marion, Burke Moses a charming and able Harold Hill. Choreography was fun and lively. But this was the first show I'd...continued

Lively and fun...the music is always enjoyable and the acting was very good. The choreography and dancing were spectacular. I enjoyed spending an evening in River City.
I would definitely leave time for parking, which can be a bit of a...continued

Prof Harold Hill was played by the understudy, who certainly looked the part but was rather underwhelming in the very beginning. He got better as the play progressed and did quite well overall. Marian has a wonderful voice but looked a bit cold....continued

The show was great! There are no "bad" seats at Arena Stage. We took the DC metro - so didn't have to worry about parking.

Thought this was an excellent production. I'm from NY so always compare things to Broadway and I think this totally matched up. I don't see how it could have been any better. And having a real high school marching band come out was the perfect...continued
