Took the train in town so parking not an issue. We loved the show in all respects. i.e. music, seats, dancing, choreography, costumes etc..
Our only problem was not being able to hear all of the lyrics but feel that that was only because some of...continued

My tickets were waiting. Our seats were high but we could see and hear everything. The sets were spectacular, the costumes were so creative and the choreography was awesome. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

This production was beautifully done. The costumes were very clever. The cast appeared to be having a very good time which created a wonderful energy with the audience. Very professional performance and wonderfully entertaining evening

I have to admit that I was a little bummed that my Red Velvet membershiop got us last row of the orchestra. The show was highly entertaining, though, and there's really not a 'bad' seat, but still...

My friends and I had a wonderful evening. The theater is small enough so that all seating has a good view. The actors were outstanding. I loved the costumes and it was a delightful interpretation of The Jungle Book. We parked in the next block in...continued

The production itself is outstanding with a fabulous set, costume, lights and staging. The actors are talented and a delight to watch on stage. Baloo and King Louis are especially impressive. The show falls flat in terms of the integration of...continued

While the costumes and set were visually stunning, and the actors all very good, this is no Pippin! I went on a Tuesday night, thinking that, unlike a matinee, it would be a bit less child oriented. I was wrong. One man and his daughter,...continued

3.5 stars. Great music, fantastic dancing, beautiful sets and costumes and a nice reinterpretation of an old story and iconic Disney movie. Some of the acting was just so-so, but the big numbers worked well and were crowd-pleasers. Kids should...continued

First of all, we had balcony seats but when we picked up the tickets that eve at box office, they were for third row orchestra. It is the theater's policy to upgrade seats for goldstar members automatically if available? We found the seats to...continued

Goldstar gets a goldstar. I was halfway up the stairs to the balcony when my husband said 'Hey, these are for the orchestra!" Awesome. We were 5th row from the stage, over to the right all the way, but everything was visible. Awesome awesome show....continued
