It's hard to go wrong with THE MUSIC MAN and this MTW presentation is pretty entertaining. Davis Gaines (arm in sling, due to an accident), works hard and carries with... continued

Davis Gaines was and is a consistently fabulous music theater star. Anything he is in is great.

The woman that played Marian was fantastic! Also the barber shop quartet was amazing. It tough to a large cast production at a community theater level especially when they are children.

It was way to much dancing, I don't remember in the movie this part. I thought the female singing was much better than Davis Gaines. He was not projecting his voice so much; all in all enjoyed it.

Great singing and dancing! How could you go wrong with Davis Gaines as the lead? The sets were fantastic, too, as were the costumes. Did I mention the orchestra? Perfect! It's a great show to take the kids to see, too.

A colorful production of a classic musical but is there really a need for
for the over amplification used at this performance

Excellent production, the whole cast was terrific.
One question, does the venue have an elevator?
I didn't see one and to go up and down the staircase
with a bad knee was very difficult.

An excellent performance. Production values, the chorus and featured performers gave Broadway quality performances.
The venue is new and modern. There are no poor seats.

A terrific production. Davis Gaines had a sore shoulder, so he had different shoulder slings -- to match his costumes -- throughout the show. We were amazed at the Well's Fargo wagon.

We saw "Young Frankenstein" here too. Loved that as well.

A rousing revival of one of the best musical comedies ever written. Davis Gaines (even with his arm in a sling) and Gail Bennett nailed the leading roles. Ms. Bennett... continued

One of my friends had not seen the show before and was enchanted.
Davis was a perfect music man, although he had pulled his shoulder
out of joint. The production was... continued
