Outstanding performances from everyone in the wonderful cast! The show is packed with gorgeous music, and the voices and acting skills of the leads are spot-on perfect! Such a delight, from the syncopated patter of the bouncing salesmen riding...continued

The evening was delightful theater and the theater-in-the-round enchanted the younger ones with us. The opening scene and some of the singing were less than I had hoped, but I am spoiled by having seen Robert Preston in NY. Overall good show;...continued

The Music Man at Arena Stage was an extremely enjoyable evening. The venue is a fun one-with not a bad seat in the house. the actors all were super. Saw the show in Boston many years ago and really enjoyed seeing it again.

The Music Man was FABULOUS. The Fichandler Stage is marvelous as it is in a square (or round) so that ALL seats are great. I am so glad to have seen your notice about the event.

The presentation was awsome! The music was a favorite of mine and the actors singing and dancing was wonderfull. It was amazing to see them adapt to the limited space to dance, that in my opinion, begged for a larger venue. It was a feel good...continued

The production was wonderful. It was filled with very talented actors with great singing, dancing and comic abilities. The new Arena Stage building is beautiful.

The singing and choreography were both excellent. I also very much enjoyed the minimalistic approach to the set and directing. The leading man and woman both did their characters justice. I was sad to leave the theater at the end of the show!

This is my favorite musical, and I left disappointed. Burke Moses is tremendous as Harold Hill, and Kate Baldwin is good as Marian, but the kid who plays Winthrop is horrible and his weak performance - plus the overall rush of the dialogue --...continued

This was perfect. We had so much fun. My dad was in town. And he loves the theater - has seen a lot of great performances - and we all felt like the music and talent were first rate. There was no one on stage who didn't absolutely belong there....continued

this was really a first rate adaptation for arena stage, lots of fun and good energy, especially for kids.
Only problem at Arena is the restaurant, where the food is mediocre and overpriced.
