The show is worth seeing as a work in progress. The cast is quite good, we all know and love the story.
The show needs about 18 weeks of an intense old-style pre-broadway... continued

I expected so much and was deeply disappointed. There wasn't one song - and remember this is a musical- that stuck in my mind because ALL the songs sounded the same. The... continued

Show was great. Stuck very close to the movie. Music was good but nothing stuck to leave the theater singing any songs. Casting was good! A very fun evening

Sleepless in Seattle did not convey well into a play format. Though the actors did their best and were talented, the script, music, costumes, and overall production were awful.
We left at intermission.

The stand out actor is the son. I thought he was excellent in the role. The other main actors were good too even with all the substitutions the night we went.

Nothing memorable about the music or performance. The ending was predictable - I had seen the movie. A good effort, but the play was only "cute". Would not recommend this for serious musical lovers.

What a well done new musical. Great performances, especially by the leads. Some of the songs could become popular. Creative presentation of the different subscenes.

Lovely production--as expected at the Playhouse. Good cast, well-directed.
The score was not memorable, and I missed Efron's humor in the book. Since I knew how the story would turn out, I kept wishing it would happen faster.

The evening does not bode well when the understudy is going on for the lead actress.....When looking at source material, creators need to ask themselves: does it sing?... continued

Went to a preview performance on 05/28, and it was enjoyable. Some of the singing voices were a bit off tonight, but it didn't completely mar the show. Outstanding were... continued

Saw the preview and it's not bad. It's a cute story with nice music. The women are all excellent actors and singers. The actor who played Walter was also phenomenal. ... continued

Good performance however the music could have been stronger. The actor playing Jonas was excellent. Hope to see more of him. Little disappointed in set design.
