This was a a lovely way to spend the evening. Everything was catchy and it had comedy, romance, drama, dancing/singing...the whole nine yards. The cast did a great job though there were obvious moments when you could hear that everyone wasn't on...continued

Lovely Ladies Night out. Started with Happy Hour at Scott's - small plates in the bar at 1/2 off! With discounted tickets, wine + small plates and parking, a $40 night out is a real bargain.
Music was great - cast outstanding. Bring a jacket...continued

This was a great evening and I am very happy I attended. Great talent. The sound was a little too loud for me and sometimes it drowned out what the actors were singing. Seats were good and the way they are spaced there was no one blocking my...continued

A well presented story and poignant depiction of the racial discord during the 50's. Loved the story-telling through the musical lyrics.

Great show. Saw it in NYC and loved it there also. Music and singers were fantastic. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star, was the sound was a bit low/muffled. Don't know if it was where we were sitting or the theater was having problems. I...continued
