Delightful - such beautiful voices, great acting, etc. Can't believe the talent and work that went into this production for a three night showing!

"Carousel" is one of my favorite shows, and the opening overture "Carousel Waltz" is, in my estimation, the most beautiful music ever written for the stage. That's why it was so disappointing to see the director restaging it to open backstage,...continued

They show was pretty good. Some of the dance number were just way too long and to me took away from the musical not added to it. Also the female singer were alot stronger than all of the male singers. The acting was very good for such a young cast...continued

Other than being a bit too long for an 8 O'clock start it is a great performance in what is the best theatre venue in Boston. Marvelous voices, a huge enthusiastic cast and an orchestra that never missed a beat. And with Goldstar tix it is an...continued

What a show! I thought I was at a Broadway production. It was amazing. What talented young performers. Everyone around me was raving and we all flew up for a standing ovation. The lead performers were exellent (Caleb Horst and Lorin Zackular) but...continued

I didn't like the beginning.
The woman who played Carrie had a great voice. She did a nice job.

Carousel is a classic musical. The Emerson production is well done. The staging is modest but effective, the costumes set the mood nicely, and all the leads play their roles well.

The show was pleasant, although 3 hours was a bit too long for Friday evening. The seats were cramped and uncomfortable. All in all It was worth the price we paid (goldstar rate)

The theater was gorgeous and purchasing and picking up tickets went very smoothly. The performance was kind of slow, especially the first act. The second one picked up a little. The actors had nice voices and acted well, but the play content was...continued

The set was terrific; the acting was good; the singing was wonderful, especially "Karen". And Rodgers and Hammerstein --- what's there to say!!!!! I was there with three friends, and we all enjoyed it soooo much!

Emerson Stage's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel is stunning. From the opening notes of the Carousel Waltz to the final drop of the curtain, the audience is swept along on a journey through life, love and loss. The 1945 score is...continued
