Wonderful singers, musicians and dancers in a terrific show of Jerry Herman's hits and little known gems. Great venue with superb acoustics and sight lines.

The was one of the best shows I've seen in awhile. The orchestra, singers and dancers was all just fantastic. I loved it so much that if it was playing for more that one night I would see it again.

The show was fantastic, the singing and dancing were fabulous. The only unfortunate thing was our seats were in the farthest left side of orchestra and had obstructed view.

A spectacular night out. Fred Barton and his gang certainly know how to put on a great show. Beth Leavel, Jesse Luttrell, et al were simply divine! Can't wait until the next one!

My wife and my brother-in-law also loved it. The singers had great voices. The band was 15 super musicians and the dancers were all great. It was almost like seeing a broadway show.

Love Harold Arlen's music, which is why I went. The singers were terrific, the song selection fine, yet the sum turned out to be less than the individual parts. Which is to say the show lacked flow. Still, glad I went. The staff were very...continued

Fred Barton concerts at Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts are truly enjoyable. A13 piece orchestra, 10 Broadway caliber singers and this time 8 dancers made this evening fun. Everyone loved this bargain.

It was a delightful evening. I did not expect it to be a Broadway production with fabulous entertainers.

Loved the show. Would have enjoyed everything more with a program that listed the songs and their performers. Loved the dancing, in particular.
