A verynice upbeat performance. Kept you smiling the whole way through. They used their somewhat limited space to the full. It was a very entertaining performance.

Had a lot of fun - old style and cheesy, but really fun with good songs, singing, acting, and a lot of dancing. Also some funny moments.

The play itself was amusing, but composed of rather dated material. The Bernstein music is very nice and the singing and dancing were good. The Lyric Stage did a first-rate production of a not-so-first-rate show.

This is a must see! Such wonderful performers and the choreography is amazing.. i wish they had the space and room of Bway.. i can only dream what the choreographer would have done with that amount of room. The show is very uplifting and joyous....continued

Goldstar has always been efficient and courteous. I have special seating needs, and Goldstar personnel have contacted the venues and arranged for my seating. The thoughtful and courteous emails from various Goldstar people go beyond duty, and I...continued

A very entertaining performance with talented actors, singers, and dancers, but a dated story line. Wonderful costumes, hair, and makeup. Taxi song and routine was cleverly done and lots of fun.

We were most pleasantly surprised by the wonderful choreography, skilled execution, and fresh pacing of this production. Indeed, during one number 18 cast members interweaved in remarkable clockwork poise on the small stage, which was carefully...continued

Well done but the stage is much too small for the amount and kind of dancing in the show. Not convinced that the story still works.

A thoroughly enjoyable, enthusiastic performance by a talented cast with creative sets that captured in song and dance the era of New York in the wartime '40s.

The show was great. The great music by Bernstein, lyrics by Comden and Green and the choreography by Robbins (not Jerome) was a feast for the ears and eyes. It was written when people knew how to write a real song with real melody and great...continued
