Some very good songs, compelling story, good acting. Voices were uneven. The first act didn't really take off despite some very powerful scenes ... the pacing seemed slow and disjointed. The second act fell together much better. SPOILER ALERT...continued

My college-age daughter and I attended. We're both theater buffs and thoroughly enjoyed it. She even more so than me. I was surprised that we would have such good seats since they were half-priced.

I believe this is a show worth seeing. The cast is very talented and worked well with the show. My only complaint is the lack of dialogue in the show. I felt the characters' introductions were too forced and would better come across with more...continued

I enjoyed this performance. The movie touched on a lot of subjucts involving different people lives and I was wondering how the play would show all these events. The play showed all the problems as well as the road blocks that we use as excuses...continued

Great singing, included all the major parts from the book. Scenery was especially creative given the size of the theater.
