Your seats are immersed in the show. The actors/vocal performers are all around you. Had a blast.

We just loved this show! The performances are great. I can't wait to see these actors in future shows as well. We are even going to try to see it again if we can fit it in. Highly recommend it!

The show was energetic and fun from start to finish. I highly recommend this play, which is more of a concert. You will enjoy clips of 39 songs. I wanted to jump up and sing along. This play also has a lot of great laughs, pretty impressive...continued
