didnt know what to expect of this play, however i am a big jeff lynne/elo fan so decided to check it out. first off,the Segerstrom Hall is beautiful, this was my 1st time there, i thought the show was very amusing, good acting and vocals, some funny scenes, i bought the $10.00 seats but moved up a bit. i thought that for the money, this was a very entertaining night out, the show would have been better in a more intimate setting, but i enjoyed it just the same.
Put a bunch of smash hit songs, Tony® Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane and the cutest couple in town into a Broadway musical comedy blender, and what do you get? "Heaven on Wheels" says The New York Times. Taking audiences back to 1980 California, this hilarious new musical follows the beautiful Kira, who travels to earth to inspire a struggling young artist named Sonny, as she helps this aspiring painter to find his voice, discover true love and build the world’s first roller disco (not necessarily in that order).
