Entertaining show overall! However, I thought the ending was weak.

Well acted, interesting story told with a lot of energy but the ending was muddled, unclear and really fell flat after a great lead up. Still I enjoyed it and it was great seeing Tony Award winner Priscilla Lopez on stage again. She's a ball of...continued

I adored this play and haven't stopped telling everyone how great it is. It was very nostalgic for this ex-New Yorker, who lived and breathed everything "West Side Story" as a teenager. When can we expect to see it on Broadway?

I enjoyed the show, especially the dance numbers. I would have enjoyed it more had there not been a horrible (and loud) hummmmm in the speaker system all through most of Act 2. Also, Ms. Lopez's speech can be difficult to understand at times...continued

Saw 'Somewhere' and thoroughly enjoyed it. Both acting and dancing very good. Laughed and shed a couple of tears too. The sound could have been a little better. I missed some of the dialogue and hate to miss the funny parts! All in all, great!

The acting was terrific but I felt the play ran too long. The ending was very confusing. I would have liked more focus on the family and less on the character of Jamie MacRae.

The show overall was well acted and well executed. I was hoping for more dancing from what the poster image displayed, but soon realized there would be minimal when the set was an apartment living room. The story was interesting, but the ending...continued

The sound was off balance, varying fro too loud to hard-to-hear. The story line was weak. The assisted-hearing devices (we tried two) failed to work.

This show had lots of heart and an interesting structure. The characters were unique, believable, and appealing. But that ending really caught me off guard-----maybe that was the idea.

Not a good play at all. I was misguided by an enthusiastic review. Hopefully it will never return.

This is a wonderful show and I strongly recommend everyone to see it. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is not, lets say, Broadway level but for a regional theater it is very well done, it is engaging, touching, and...continued

This was an ambitious and high-energy play that took place in an interesting time in New York. The cast of five were all solid, with Priscilla Lopez and Michael Rosen being excellent. With a mixture of humor, human frailty, dancing and dreaming,...continued

We both were disappointed in the play. The acting and dancing were strong and it showed promise but the second act fell apart and none of the major conflicts were resolved.

A very corny, sitcom-like, over acted story with some very good dancing. Not enough dancing to overcome the hokey script.
