A solid new musical with a talented, engaging cast and terrific staging and direction. Recommended!

The musical itself is not great - the story it trite and the music and lyrics are pedestrian and unmemorable. The cast is mediocre at best, and the singing is often off key. Made 90 minutes feel like 3 hours.

Took my teenaged kids for my birthday. Loved the singing, really excellent voices and songs, musicians. All round a great play and my kids admitted they didn't hate it, which says an awful lot :-)

Parking was easy if you used their valet otherwise not so easy. Seats were not comfortable. The music was okay but not the bluegrass we expected.
The cast very talented. All the voices were impressive. The sets were clever and worked well.

A tale told mostly through song with a very talented well balanced cast with strong voices. Dynamic staging greatly enhances the pace of the show. The setting is West Virginia, the music "blue-grass." Go see it

The production was terrific. The actors were wonderful; I really enjoyed it! The theatre staff as a whole was quite unfriendly, the one exception was the very warm and friendly gentleman accepting tickets.

Painful. I went because of the promise of bluegrass music but the repetitive, boring score had almost nothing to do with bluegrass, the book was silly and cliched, and... continued

Didn't know what to expect coming into this show with this company, but I LOVED it! The actors were all phenomenal, strong leads, and amazing harmonies. The band rocked. A great show and I'd definitely see it again.

The actors are all good and sing well, but each song sounds like the one before. Needs work.

A polished production with some fabulous performances and a likeable score, but a weak story that doesn't withstand a lot of thinking through.

An engaging, heartwarming story in a very intimate setting. I thoroughly enjoyed the music, the singing, and the characters.

A fantastic show. The story is suspenseful and scary in parts. The music and vocals are thrilling, and every performance is overflowing with passion. I am glad that I saw it in previews and will see it again near the end of the run!
