It would have been difficult to follow the plot line through the music if one had not seen the movie. The lyrics of most of the female cast members were nearly impossible to understand. This is primarily a fault of the venue, Segerstrom Hall is...continued

Omigod you haters stop! Okay, the seats were a bit far, but they were only $20! And the sound could have been better, but the other reviews make it seem much worse than it actually is. And WHAT a great show! Fun book, fun lyrics, fun music, nice...continued

Although I am opposed to this "Turn a movie into a musical" trend that broadway seems to be stuck in, this was a cute and up beat show. I do agree with the others that at times it was hard to understand what the actors were saying and singing but...continued

Very cute show... better than I expected. Seats were a bit far away, so sometimes it was hard to hear all the lyrics. The acting was great, the songs were great, the humor was great - overall, very well done! The singing was fantastic! And I...continued

This is such a fun and energetic show that it was hard to keep myself from bouncing along to the music! The stamina and talent of the cast is on grande display! That said, I sat in Tier 3, which is so high up I feel I should warn of possible...continued

Could not understand the lyrics to the songs and even when the actors spoke it was very difficult to understand what they were saying. Overall a little cheesy, little disappointed.

I subtracted one star for the venue, which I believe I'm being very forgiving on. We sat in Tier 3 front and it was difficult to understand what they were saying and singing. The sound of the band sounded muffled. I'm not sure it was because we...continued

A very fun show. The lead got better as the show went on. The acoustics are not great at OCPAC so you couldn't always understand the words. Great dance numbers!

We attended the show on a Friday night. There were plenty of open seats, which was nice, it allowed us to move down a seat to have some more room. It was difficult hearing some of the lines and we were a little far back. With that said, the show...continued

"Oh my gawd, you guys~~ <3"

This was the cutest musical I have ever seen. Lots of pink. Lots of glitter.

I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I could hear all the lyrics. The seats were rather far away, so I found myself having to lean...continued

I agree with Robert Tingley. The show was fun when I could finally understand the lyrics. The cast was energetic and the show was well done. However, I am shocked at the very poor selection of seating to which I and my friend were assigned. If...continued

The show was great but unfortunately the sound was a little off and at times kind of hard to understand the actors.

My 9 year old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed the show. Although the production was very professional, and, enjoyable, I too had an extremely hard time discerning the female voices- especially when they were singing.

Wonderful musical. Very fun for my teenage girls & me! We had a blast. Seats were a little high up and at times it was difficult to understand what they were saying and singing. All in all it was enjoyable and very entertaining.

Having not seen the movie, I cannot compare it to that, but I have to say I loved the musical! The singing, costumes, music, choreography were all fantastic! Probably one of the most fun and entertaining shows I have seen in a long time. We all...continued

Great production and very cheery; seating at this venue is oddly arranged but for the great Goldstar price, you can't beat it! Thank you

The play was excellent but it was hard to understand what the cast was saying at times. (We were sitting up in tier 3.) The original seats we had were fine but since there were tons of empty seats, we moved all the way over to the end of the row...continued

This was a very cute and entertaining musical completely based on the movie. Knowing the story help us not to get confused, because the dialog and music were difficult to understand.
I would recommend to friends and family and worth the money...continued

I went with my sister, mom and aunt. It is a great play for a girl's night out! But my husband would have killed me if I brought him. The close tickets ran out pretty quickly, so we had to get the tier three which are far. We brought binoculars...continued
