We really enjoyed this fun show. It was entertaining with good music and actors/singers. Also we felt it was a good value for this venue.
Parking was the only issue. The lot was full across the street and it was hard to find street parking. ...continued

This show was fun and entertaining. The cast had great voices and a lot of energy and the music and musicians were awesome. All 6 of us loved it. We had great seats in the 2nd row. Great venue, only problem is parking.

The music was fine, but, there was no plot what-so-ever. A no-thinking type of night out.

I took my friend and my son to this show. We had a lot of fun! The set is really cool. My son had a blast watching the guys play a variety of instruments. He couldn't wait to clap along with the songs. At one point when the girls are singing a...continued

The play was OK, the music was better, but it would have been better if there were a few tunes that the audience is familiar with, so we can sing along!

We took our daughter and son-in-law who is a musician and they loved it and he thought the musicians were very much better than average players. In fact, they asked about how to join Goldstar and were very impressed with the show and how easy it...continued

Good music. Felt like I had made some new friends. My girlfriend likes country and enjoyed the music. There wasn't much of a story line but was a lot of fun.

Expected better harmony from past experiences with Lamb's players. Also felt it was overacted. My mistake in buying tickets, far too "country" for me. We left at intermission.

The play was excellent. We all had a wonderful time. It was especially fun winning the raffle!! The stories that are played out by the songs are very enjoyable.

Very entertaining! I saw it years ago when the show debuted at the Old Globe. Just as good! In Act 2, there is a number called "Tips", The "Dinettes" Prudie and Rhetta mingle in the audience asking for tips. All I had on me was a $100 bill, so I...continued

We enjoyed it once again - our 4th time seeing this play - twice in Chicago and now twice in San Diego. The girls were especially good and fit their characters very well.
