The seats were great. The show was fun. Fagan was hard to understand. If you didn't already know the story you, it would be hard to understand what was going on. The actress who played Nancy was phenomenal.

Seats are getting worse and worse with this venue in terms of Goldstar. They even print Goldstar on ticket, which means 'back of the bus! Our seats were one row from the back in the center, right below spot lights. The lights kept going on-off....continued

The musical was great - described as awesome by my 7 year old. Definitely nosebleed seats - did not feel like it made any difference that we were Red Carpet, we were still at the very back of the theater.

The production was good, but our seating was so far up that you needed binoculars. It was difficult to engage with the stage being so far away.

It was overall a fine production. There seemed to be some technical problems with Mrs. Sowerberry's mic.

This was an abridged production of "Oliver!" which left out the songs "I Shall Scream" and "That's Your Funeral."

The production was wonderful. I give it 5 stars. However, the seats were the worst in the house ... up in the balcony in the far corner ... couldn't get any closer to the top!! I couldn't see much! I won't book The 5th Avenue Theater through...continued

Especially loved Oliver, whom we know, he did a great job of singing, dancing and his expressions were priceless. Great family show for the holidays.

One of the best musicals I've seen. Wish though that I'd been closer to see the actors' expressions...kind of difficult from just near the back of the theater. What a great experience though. The orchestra was great too.

The female lead was extraordinary.
The actor playing Oliver was okay.
Many of the lyrics were hard to decipher due to the sound system.

Good show, not so good seats. I like the Oliver Twist story and have seen numerous productions of it. This was a good one, well stayed with a talented cast. Our Goldstar seats were not as good as I was expecting from the price and description; up...continued

I was VERY disappointed with the seats. Will never purchase tickets that aren't pre-assigned again. Linda Wright

It was my first time buying tickets on Goldstar. What can I say? The process was easy, and the price was good. But the fact you can't choose and don't know your seats till the last minute is quite annoying. When my family entered the hall, and...continued

Nice way to spend the Sunday afternoon on a holiday weekend. Wish we were a little closer to the stage. We were about about six rows down from the rafters. Couldn't see their faces or their expressions but the music was good. Little children are...continued
