The music is amazing and the cast really gives 100%. This is actually more of a concert than a musical show. There is a thin story line described in the playbill, but it... continued

We left saying how much we wanted to tell people to see this show. The cast was so talented, if not always perfect. I smiled the whole time.

I didn't care for that production. I've seen SJC many times and this particular production fell flat, I thought.

I have seen this show in New York and in Florida. Both productions were in larger theaters with larger casts, but your production was just as good and the intimacy of the theater added to my love of this fabulous music!!

Love the show. The energy of the performers was amazing. Music brought back lots of memories. The only problem was the performers need to be wearing mics. It was often difficult to hear them.

Fast, non-stop action made the time fly, and the small size of the cabaret setting made it all that much more intimate. The $12 valet parking was worth it, but there are probably cheaper options.

The performers were top notch. The band was fantastic. Some of the numbers selected weren't to my taste. I would have liked a little more Motown, Beatles and Elvis, but the show was thoroughly enjoyable.

Thoroughly entertaining, with a very talented cast of performers. Plus, every seat in the house is a good seat. We're considering going again.
