This was a great story with fantastic sets, costumes and other production values. The singing for the most part was good but the problem I had was understanding the... continued

Che was astonishingly wonderful. Evita less so. Staging was very creative.

Good seat, easy to watch, but sound was not real clear and words were sometimes difficult to understand. The experience was enjoyable but not "good" nor "very good."

We had a great time. The cast and their abilities were wonderful. The venue is small enough that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Parking was easy. Freeway access was easy. It was an all-around good experience.

The seats could have been better, there were several rows of empty seats 2 rows behind us and closer to the center. We sat behind tall people so it was a little annoying... continued

Difficult to see from nose-bleed balcony seats. There seemed to be no plot, just a history without much drama. The music was okay.

It's a very interesting story, with excellent music and (in this case) a very solid cast. None of the performers were particularly outstanding, but everything was correct.

This performance is amazing. I learned so much of the history and captured by each actors & actress emotional involvement. I enjoy so much of the opera singing.

While the performance quality and sets were excellent, it just isn't a very engaging story. We all found it boring, probably our least favorite musical ever. Again, no fault to the performers.

always a pleasure to watch a broadway musical so close to home..!! no long drives to SF and parking issues (even with the SHARKS game close by).

Really helps to know the story line ahead. Some of the song words were not understandable.
