Evita was wonderful. The actor who played Che was excellent as well as the actress who played Evita herself. Fantastic performance!

Evita is always good, and this rendition did not disappoint. My favorite part about Goldstar is that it allows you to plan at the very last minute, yet the quality of the seating is always really good. I refer others to Goldstar all of the time,...continued

I first saw Evita 30+ years ago in Los Angeles. This time I took my 12 year old son. It was a very professional show-great voices, dancing, and production value. All in all a wonderful way to spend 2 1/2 hours. I gave it 4 out of 5 starts...continued

I purchased the orchestra seats and was delighted with the assigned seating (row O) - we had an excellent view. The Oriental Theater is beautiful and it seems as though there's not a bad seat in the house. The production was excellent, lots of...continued

Reworked to include "You Must Love Me" a song composed especially for the film by ALW, this version of Evita, though scaled back from the B'way original, still packs a punch. Good Company and standout performers in the leads. Saw it twice. The...continued

The theater was great. I was not impressed with the Dress Circle seats. We were right in the middle, but the balcony obstructed our view of the top 1/3 of the stage where they projected some historical pictures. The singing was very good, but I...continued

This show is always worth seeing. It changes with the times and the new song that was added for the film, but it never disappoints :)
Talent across the boards that night. ;)
Well costumed & choreographed to boot!
A fun nt out for Broadway, Webber,...continued

Disappointing. I feel like it was a dumbed down version of Evita. Also, the singing by the lead actress who played Eva was subpar. She can sing for sure but if you are going to play Eva Peron, you better be outstanding and she was not. The men...continued

It was a first class performance from beginning to end. I had a little trouble hearing some of the words of the songs sitting in the 2nd balcony, but got the essence of the story. It was a great experience.

The music and choreography were well done as was the story of her life. The staff was very helpful however the elevator was only available at certain times and the steps were numerous. It was a great date night experience .

The seats were excellent. Obtaining the tickets at the box office was as convenient as if they were purchased directly from the theater. The Oriental and Palace Theaters are extremely convenient to public transportation and costly parking fees...continued

Wonderful musical, but not the best seats. Every time I have brought through goldstar the seats have been spectacular. Maybe just a bad luck of the draw!
