Acting, dancing, singing, staging were marvelous. Greatly exceeded our expectations. Came out feeling very happy and humming the songs.

May go to see it again. Recommending it to all the friends we encounter.

The show was ok. It's just an amalgam of R&H. The problem of course with this is that the there's little to no emotional connection between songs. It feels more like listening to a Best of .. CD

Absolutely delightful. It was all we could do not to sing along. We did a lot of silent lip-synching. The staging/choreography kept things moving so that each song created its own little vignette: solos, duets, trios developing character and mood...continued

Very good performance if you enjoy Rodgers and Hammerstein music. Alot of obscure songs as well as everyone's favorites. The group of singers were all very good. Well worth the ticket price.

I thoroughly enjoyed this show! I only wish it could have been longer. Growing up with so much of this music, it was a joy to listen to, as I sat and mouthed the words to most of the songs. I highly recommend it. I'm seriously thinking of going to...continued
