Disappointed with the show. Have seen many times over the years, the 1st time in Chicago many YEARS ago and have loved every one. This recent tour group has the poorest singers. I believe the cast was either smaller or lacked the voice quality....continued

Great show. But the parking is very expensive. Gold star is not updating the parking fee which is not $19 actually it is $25. Food and drinks in the theater is ridiculously expensive. A small bottle water for $3?wow.

I had a great time at Evita. The show was a classic musical that you don't see very often these days due to special effects and over the top musical numbers. Evita focused on talent and simple but well choreographed dance numbers to achieve the...continued

I have never purchased tickets through Goldstar, so I was unsure of where we were going to sit, being that the seats were not assigned at time of purchase. However, as it was a Wednesday, I would say it was a good evening to go. We had very good...continued

I have seen Evita before and I considered this to be a good community theater production. The ensemble was outstanding but I was not impressed with the understudy for Eva. Also, I thought her blond wig could have been better. It looked too...continued

I was entertained an enjoyed watching at the Oriental Theater. All the seats were great. I think the lead singer who portrayed Evita fell short in her singing and acting. The overall theme was simple for having a small stage and was done well,...continued

It was a fun evening out but I thought the production was drab and Evita harshly sung. The chorus/dancers were very good and energetic, but the whole thing seemed off. I saw the show many years ago and didn't love it then so I'm probably talking...continued

Our seats were fantastic, lower balcony, perfect view. The show was unbelievable, the cast was amazing! I saw it when it was on Broadway last year and was horribly disappointed, this National touring cast was so much better. Completely worth...continued

The experience effectively took me back in time and tastefully painted a picture of the reality; all communicated through light and amazing music and voice. MOvement and dance were mesmerizing and told the story so well. The night flew by!!

The orchestra was excellent! The narrator was also extremely talented. Some of the singers including the lead had difficulty with notes in the higher register. Sadly at least one quarter of her songs had a significant portion of high notes. She...continued

This was the best version of Evita I have seen. The lighting is especially notable and the choreography was impressive. The leads are fantastic and the ensemble is incredibly robust. It was a great show!!

Very enjoyable performance. The choreography was superb, better than the original. Josh Young as Che has an amazing voice. Caroline Bowman is a lovely, Evita, perhaps not as gritty and overtly sexual as I remember, but very talented. Goldstar...continued
