A horrible script with vapid music and lyrics. When you add to this mix a mediocre cast, a clueless director / choreographer and a truly awful female lead that can't dance, all that that can be said is; What a failing!
Nonetheless many in the...continued

Not quite ready for prime time, the show features a bloated book and a lead performance by a young actress who is just too green for the big time. Sound design also needs work- lyrics were inaudible. Sergio Trujillo's choreography is excellent...continued

Seats in Tier 3 were fine - but don't have a fear of heights if your'e going to sit here! Still the view was good as we were in the front rows of the tier. The play itself was good, but not great.

Great seats and enjoyed the production. Expected to hear more songs from the movie but that's okay. Dancing was good and enjoyed the new to me songs. Very talented cast!

Seats were great. Audio of the show was not great. Too low and as audible as it should be

I'm rating this play as one of the best I've seen. The singing and dancing was filled with such great enthusiasm and filled with non stop energy. The special effects were amazing as was how easily they changed the scenery. I walked out of the...continued

Great seats and fun atmosphere. Outside on the plaza terrace they play 80's music and have a large video monitor set up for PacMan. Some gals dressed in 80's attire and people were just happy, having a good time. The production had some really...continued

This is one of the only times I have been disappointed with a performance at the Sergerstrom. (everything with regard to Goldstar was fine). If you consider that this was a pre-Broadway tour, perhaps that can explain some of it. But I believe New...continued

My sister and I had a great time at this play. The acting, dancing, and singing were all top notch; the cast had lots of energy and made the play come alive. I highly recommend this musical.

Thank You Goldstar for great seats in the first tier. For me the Segerstrom is not my favorite place to see a play (Pantages and Ahamanson are tops)... it seems like the sound gets lost in this cavernous house, and the acoustics aren't that good...continued

I really enjoyed this hi energy musical. Good singing, dancing and acting; nice costumes and sets. Had great seats and really enjoyed it. Would recommend. I had seen the movie and thought they did a good job in the musical of telling the story.

Flashdance: The Musical has fantastic moments as performed by a cast that gives it their all - and they do give as most are on stage the entire performance. The songs of "Maniac" , "Manhunt", "Gloria" get the audiance having that old feeling...continued
