Sunset Blvd. was a wonderful musical. We loved the story, music and costumes. We would highly recommend it to other theater lovers. Drury Lane is a great theater and I have never been disappointed in any event.

The casts was wonderful and very entertaining. Even though the show started almost 15 minutes late we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The play is professional and very good but not excellent. It is a suburban playhouse and is good for the mid west.

This play was quite sad and dark. Thought it was going to be a happy musical...which is what I like to see when I go to the theater. Plus I thought there would be more dancing...the actors were amazing and talented, but the songs were very boring...continued

All in all a very good performance although the first half was a little too long/drawn out. Music was excellent but seemed too loud at times. It almost seemed a little like an opera - not much spoken dialogue, more singing. My husband enjoyed...continued

Before reviewing I would like to commend the Goldstar Team for helping with my special needs. You made our outing carefree. Thank you. The play was enjoyable to all in my party. Considering this was a musical, I must say the actors, for the...continued

Enjoyed event (expecially music (both vocal and
orchestra). Wasn't expecting much acting & my daughter was preparing me for more sensual activity but it really didn't occur.

Good voices, costumes, staging. A bit schmaltzy for my taste. We have seen better at Drury Lane.

Great acting and presentation as usual for Drury Lane. I found the plot and story to be drawn out. I thought the first act would never end. The music is unremarkable and the dialog was constantly sung. The play could have been shortened, I...continued

I didn't know the storyline of Sunset Boulevard. I was surprised at what it was about. The melodies were odd, many times ending on a higher note. I will NEVER be able to go to Drury Lane again without thinking about the gigolo jumping into the...continued

Sure, this production is not the lavish, full-on Broadway experience, but for a smaller, local theater it was definitely first rate. The set was fairly minimal, but well used throughout the show to create the different settings. The actress that...continued

The actors were all very well cast and very talented. The first act was 1 and 1/2 hours long and very tedious. There were too many songs that were over-produced and unnecessary. The second act was 1 hour long and very enjoyable. On the whole, it...continued
