The show really was a lot of fun and also had a lot of heart. I went to it thinking it would be really lightweight but quickly got into it. The characters and their backgrounds are actually quite engaging and you actually end of caring about...continued

Better than I expected it to be. Enough subtle humor that appeals to adults. The actors were terrific and strong singing voices. Catch a Goldstar deal and GO!

This is such a fun show -- but be advised this is an adult show (think Avenue Q) . The voices on stage were great (especially the comfort counselor!!) and the setting at Ford' s theater is always a treat

Delightful show. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Haven't laughed this hard in a long time; good, clean, well/timed humor. Fine acting. Performance never bogged down.

I actually liked the spoken dialogue much more than the music. Orchestra was...continued

Talented voices, but more tailored for children than adults. There was some adult humor, but not enough to warrant going without children IMHO.

Ford's Theatre is my favorite venue in town. Our seats were in the front row and we didn't miss a minute of fun. The charming cast very deftly worked with audience members.

I had wanted to see this show since it was on Broadway some years ago and got great reviews. Overall, the show was pretty good and had some very funny moments. I went to a Friday matinee during spring break. There were children in the audience who...continued

Goldstar got me the best seat in the house--5th row, center. (Well, I guess the best seats were the 4 on stage, as they recruit 4 members of the audience to be on stage as part of the Spelling Bee, until they miss a word. Although they come close...continued
