Show was good. I just wish our tickets weren't in the nose bleed seats, but that was my fault.

Dancing was fantastic. However, the (fake??) English accent was hard to understand.

The play was most entertaining with spectacular dancing from Billy. I loved all the dance numbers. The acting was excellent from the entire cast and Billy was terrific. But the dialog, both spoken and sung, was very difficult to understand...continued

This isn't a fair review as we did not stay for the 2nd act. I thought the choreography was very creative and Billy was amazing for being such a young man. Because I am older I could not always understand the words because of the accent. The...continued

Good show but seats were not great- way up in balcony. I'd spend the extra $$s for better seats next time.

Great singing and dancing, but it was a little hard to understand what they were saying through their thick accents.

I did enjoy it. I had high expectations because my sister in law told me she liked it more than Wicked - but she saw it in Chicago. It's no Wicked, but it is good. I have mixed reviews on the talent. I thought the woman who played "Mrs....continued

Loved the show. Music & dancing were great. The only criticism is the sound at the end of the first act was so loud it hurt your ears. As far as the show would see it again!

Funny and entertaining show! The only warning I have is for all the parents who want to take their children to see this: salty language is used, so be prepared for it. The Segerstrom Center is beautiful and you won't really get a bad seat, so get...continued

I thought the show terrific. The dancing is superb. Tickets were ready at Will Call with no problems, and the seats were good.

I went with a friend and we both absolutely loved it! Outstanding talent both dancing & singing. Very well done. I have a relative who would enjoy this - I'm getting tickets to take her - and I would love to sit through it again!!

My friends and I loved this play. We were on the 3rd level but still were able to see, hear and enjoy the musical. I would use Goldstar again and again. Keep up the good work.

Online booking through Goldstar was easy and it was easy to pick up tickets at will call. The only thing I'd do differently is not buy cheapest tickets as we were too far. Maybe if Goldstar had some means to show distance from seat to stage, it...continued

The tickets were in the nose bleed section, you couldn't see the faces or react to the acting. It is doubtful I will ever trust Goldstar again. I expected a little better than that.
