show is a classic - very well done! and a big thank you to Goldstar for arranging "no stairs to climb" seating for our 87-year-old Mom

Great seats as usual Goldstar does not disappoint. Show was lively and dramatic. But I am not a fan of shows where the actors break character to ask for donations at the end of the show. But the Pantages is awesome and the seats were great!

Best thing about show was dinner at Solo Tapas, a Spanish cafe across the street from the Pantages. Order at counter, delivered to table, so not fine dining, but really good food. Waiters know menu and can make suggestions.

Excellent seats, amazing show, great music and clever dance number. Powerful singing while doing intricate and high energy dance routines. Well worth seeing.

I was surprised that the performance didn't start until 8:15 and not the scheduled 8 PM.

Frankly, I was disappointed. This musical does not live up to its hype. The story is depressing and a lot of the chorus' words are difficult to understand. There are some very good songs and Che was excellent, but overall, I'd see another musical...continued

I really enjoyed the performance although I felt the main actress was screaming some of her songs rather than singing them. One of my friends agreed with me and the other, agreeing with us, said it was what made her enjoy the show more. The venue...continued

One friend and I took the metro from the valley and a third friend drive from Redondo Beach. The Metro is a breeze! My friend who drove had to pay $30.00 to park! When we went to our seats, the usher at the first currtain had no clue where our...continued

I was excited to see this presentation, though getting there was "the day from hell", do to street construction, and a concert being let out at the time the play started, even leaving 3 hours early, I was 10 min late! For the show itself, it was...continued

I just LOVE Goldstar for making it possible for me to see EVITA at the Pantages! I live in Laguna, and the drive to Los Angeles is a murderous 2 hours no matter what day of the week! But I could not pass up the fabulous discount Goldstar offered...continued

Really good show - never saw the original on the big stage. My friend (who is a huge fan of the original) said this newer version lost a lot of the intensity of the original. But going in cold, I thought it was wonderful. Also, we saw Desi...continued

As usual, our seat assignments were outstanding. We appreciate that our special needs requests are always heeded. The play was beautifully presented with outstanding voices. Just as good as it was over 30 years ago at the Ahmanson, abet a few...continued

I went the previous week and was more impressed with this production than I am with 90% of touring productions, which often just seem to me to be phoning in the performances. This was really first rate, especially the leads. So I decided to go...continued

The musical was excellent. Well staged and quickly paced. The music seemed a bit faster than normal but overall and excellent show.

Bored and repelled by Eva Perron's voice. We left at intermission

I had never seen Evita before. Fabulous dancing, stunning singing. The Mistress was especially good. Sitting far away but still was able to see and hear everything. The theater itself was beautiful. Worth the Goldstar price for sure.

Lucked out with a free parking space, but heard complaints that some lots are now charging $30 to park!

I'm a big fan of the show anyway, but it looked and sounded great. Wish I hadn't gone on closing night; I would've recommended it to friends.

Perrone and Che were the only outstanding voices, there was an understudy for Evita...very disappointing. I expected more.
