Based on the movie of 1988, (based on the book 1985), Beaches follows a life-long friendship of BFF's CeeCee and Bertie. I mistakenly expected the musical to be sad from the onset, simply because I had forgotten much of the movie. So, I was...continued

Everything was perfect. Signature had my tickets in my hand in minutes and Beaches was the BEST musical (or any theatrical production) I have seen in years! It was fantastic -- worthy of the best Broadway stage!

This was a great show! Actress that played Ce Ce Bloom had a powerful set of pipes (unfortunately for her co-star Bertie, who struggled to keep up) and great comedic timing. Go!

Enjoyable musical based on the book and the film. Not as moving as the film. Very nice venue.

Stellar performances from the two leads. Their vocals were very impressive. It's hard to beat Bette Midler's standout performance, and they did a great job for such big shoes to fill. I did think that Roberta's role of strength was diminished a...continued

Not as schmaltzy as the movie. Not great, but very good. The music and the diva-like behavior of Cee-Cee Bloom brought Dreamgirls very much to mind. The best thing about the show are the three pairs of women who play Cee-Cee and her friend at...continued

Wonderful performance. The stage design was very unusual depicting the two girl's lives as they met and grew up together to be best friends. Loved it!

A wonderful show! Vocals were amazing and the actors truly captured the emotion of the story. I went with my mother and sister in law and we all LOVED it. Well done.
