Performance was wonderful but it was a most uncomfortably hot and humid evening.

even though this was a daytime performance, some of the time the stage was not properly lighted. Also, I realize these were discounted tickets, but there were plenty of seats closer to the stage which would have been great for my niece and nephew.

The acting and singing were realy good. I did think it dragged a little in the first act. The Uncle Tom's Cabin (Small House of Uncle Thomas) part was great.

It was a fun musical and my boys ages 10 and 11 enjoyed it very much as did we. Once again Goldstar was great.

the production overall was very enjoyable. I love the music. It was well choreographed. the set was imaginative given that it was only up for a few days. Having seen the movie, it was strange to see the King with hair!, but he did a good job...continued

This is a great version of this musical. The sets are terrific and the singers in this cast are wonderful. The musical itself is a period piece reflecting the perception of Siam held by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and needs to be seen in that light.

We enjoyed the King and I very much. Some of the plot subtexts were lost on our 9 year old son, but the costumes, choreography and music kept him engaged. The rear orchestra seats were as expected - not what we typically choose, but with a fine...continued

Wonderful production! Great singing, acting, sets, everything! Seeing it at Wolf Trap was much more fun than being in a Broadway theater!

I really enjoyed this event. I had great seats and was happy I bought the ticket. I would definitely go to another event at Wolftrap and buy my ticket through Goldstar.

The singer/performers were talented and what we would have expected from a Broardway production. Sound amplification was louder than I would have liked and detracted from the enjoyment of the production. Wolf Trap and the Filene Center is a fun...continued

My husband and I loved the performance - we were impressed by the high quality of the singing and dancing, and found the acting and singing touched us emotionally. We weren't expecting much - especially given the film version but, to our pleasant...continued
