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.

I'm sorry to say it but we didn't like it at all. The performers were wonderful and very talented. But the show was dull dull dull. Not one song was "catchy" or anything that you'd leave the theatre with it still in your head. Sets were...continued

This show needs a lot of work. The lyrics are horrendous. Rhyming just to rhyme. I will say the majority of the performances were great but they don't have much to work with in terns of the show. Still a fun night out at the theatre. I did...continued

This was a delightful play. The performances were good, voices were beautiful and the youth in the production was outstanding. A must see.

Nice, light-hearted, comedic, and witty music. Nice singing performance by the cast. Very impressed with the boy who plays Jonah, such young talented actor. He's definitely got a future in show biz! Definitely an enjoyable show.

However,...continued

The Pasadena Playhouse is such an amazing venue that it's difficult to write a negative review. Having said that, Sleepless in Seattle is not good. Having said that, I should also note that I've had very bad luck with musical theatre in LA. I...continued

Our seats were great....only problem, the show wasn't! Sleepless in Seattle was a really iconic movie --- and while much of the dialogue came right from the film, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan were sorely missed! Adding somewhat forgettable music...continued

Great seats in the 2nd row but the volume is so loud for this production that seats farther back would have been fine. Those familiar with the movie know the plot. The play tried too hard to replicate the movie and its stars, filling in the plot...continued

Just okay- can't compare to original movie. Cast is very talented but original sentiment gets a bit lost. Too bad late Nora Ephron wasn't included in project.

I loved the staff and the venue. The play itself was bad. All stars are for venue and staff.

Loved the musical "Sleepless in Seattle". Thought the characters were perfect, especially Jonah-Joe West. Seating is a bit of a issue, no middle isle. Otherwise, good show.

Play was great. Goldstar seats were switches for seats at the back of the balcony, which was a surprise. It was also about 100-degrees in the balcony. We asked for seats in another area, and even though the play was sold out, the manager came up...continued

Went yesterday with my wife and another couple. Excellent show, tickets were good. The only problem was the lack of A/C in the theater for the first act. Very uncomfortable. Many people including myself were not happy. They management said...continued

First, we got rear orchestra seats through Goldstar and when we showed up we were assigned rear balcony seats. The playhouse gave us a refreshment voucher to make up for it, but for me this was not cool.
The show is enjoyable, but the songs are...continued

I enjoyed the play. The actors and the overall performance was entertaining and I often smiled at the cute songs and young Jonah. It didn't take my breath away nor was it quite as good as I had hoped for considering how much I loved the movie.
