I'm so glad we paid half price for these tickets, because we only stayed for half of the show. I had high hopes for this play, as the storyline seemed interesting and... continued

I've seen the show twice and want to go again. I just loved it. The set is amazing and brings dreams to life with lots of surprises. The music is wonderful. I expect it will sweep the Tonys when it opens on Broadway.

It's okay. The story needs developing and the music is not memorable. But, a fun night out.

It's a hard thing to review a musical. You know what you're getting... song and dance. Of which they did just that. Of course the story is different and that's not the... continued
