Fine retelling of the Norma Desmond story. Loved the operatic voices, and thought the sets were tremendously creative, especially the headlines and film montages. But the star of the show, of course, was that gorgeous car!

I guess i really didnt know much about this play except that it was famous. I thought it moved kind of slow and i didnt like that every word was sung (except for a few lines) the acting and singing was really good though!

It was very creative, well directed and well acted. The music was first rate.

The performance was very good; the play, itself, kind of dated. I should have known better, but I was curious. It was unsettling listening to dialog sung instead of spoken.

As always,great performers at Drury Lane Theatre(OakBrook Terrace). Nice size theatre. Good theatre sets for each production. Adequate free parking(no reason to go into the city to be taken advantage of).

This was a great play. I would definately recommend this play to others. Excellent performances by all! The actress that played Norma Desmond (lead) was excellent!

Loved the play, outstanding!!!

Not really a score you will be humming the next day, but the performances and production were great. Faithful to the story in the movie.

The actors are very talented, with wonderful voices - I'd give them 4 stars. My issues with the performance were that the microphone volume was too high and the lighting... continued

The singing was gorgeous as was the scenery, but the first act was slow. The second was very good. Not one of Drury Lanes best plays.
