I usually LOVE this part with GoldStar. And I love to review the shows I see in detail. All I can say about this show is BORING & BAD. I knew from the opening number that it was going to be all downhill - which it was. It combines a little West...continued

A great idea that just didn't pan out. The story line was tired and predictable, a poor interpretation of "Grease" or "West Side Story". The dialogue was stilted and only there to support the songs. And the music was lacking. There was something...continued

Absolutely fabulous! Did not quite know what to expect (especially based on some reviews) but it turned out to be more than I could have expected. Totally professional acting, singing, dancing and a great live band! I think this show has legs...continued

Great music, very talented actors/ singers. Venue is small enough that can sit anywhere.

We liked it very much. The music, singing & story all good. We were very glad we went to see it. It was our first time at the El Portal and liked it a lot also.

THIS IS AN INNOVATIVE USE OF PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED MUSIC. COLEMAN'S SCRIPT IS NEATLY TIED TOGETHER BY MOSTLY FAMILIAR SONGS . I AM A PRODUCT OF THE 50'S NOT 60'S BUT MY WIFE AS A BOOMER HELPED ME OUT. I FOUND HER MOUTHING MOST OF SONGS AS THEY WERE...continued

This was an English version of Westside Story. It was good; as was the music. I was almost tempted to buy the CD.

There’s one review on here that is so harsh (and, I now know, unfair) that I almost didn’t bother to go to this show. I’m glad I did. There are a lot of talented performers in MODROCK, which – like MAMMA MIA! – uses songs that have already been...continued

Ideally, MODROCK would've/could've been a "West Side Story"
equivalent for the "A Hard Day's Night" generation, as edgy, and
memorably thrilling as the best of that era's music and pop stars.
The result, however, is more like "Quadraphenia"...continued

We had a nice time. Show was OK--actors all good, we enjoyed, but didn't LOVE it. It is lightweight, and good fun, but don't believe it will set the world on fire.

What an excellent show!!
Loved the actors, and even more, the MUSIC of Britain and the "Invasion" of those bands who made it there way to America along with Beatlemania!
I invited 4 friends and we all LOVED the show and would see it again!!

Yeah...continued

Fun afternoon out. Music was nice, as were the costumes. My husband was born and raised in London so he noticed a few questionable phrases and sub-par British accents, but overall an enjoyable experience.

Fun and enjoyable, especially if you grew up in the 60's with the music. Couldn't always understand dialog because of the cockney accents but that made it feel british.

I went on the first preview night and I thought it was great! Really top notch performers and band. My favorite was Harley Jay, one of the Rockers. His energy and performance were very fantastic to watch. Parking was bit of a nightmare though. I...continued

The cast is really talented but beyond that....the story and "jokes" are pretty bad.

This show was a let down. Not the performers faults. They all had great voices and you could tell they were all trying their darndest to make this show work but it just doesn't. The book was really not good. The director really could have...continued
