Side-splittingly funny! This is an excellent production, sharp, fast-paced, well sung, acted, and cast, with the laughs coming at a steady clip. Viewers who are only familiar with the 1966 movie staring Zero Mostel will be pleasantly surprised...continued

The show is what it is. In other words if you're familiar with this corny Sondheim musical you know in advance that it has its limitations. It will remind you of a Mel Brooks movie. Some actors shined more than others, and the sets were kind of...continued

An excellent production of a classic musical comedy with a 22 piece orchestra and a sensational cast. Ruth Williamson as Domina once again proves to be an unsung treasure of American musical theatre.

We thought it was great! Very funny, even to the younger folks in the audience who, unlike us, had not seen Zero Mostel in the production so long ago.

Nothing funny happened on the way to the forum.. Terrible cast..completely inept comedically-- amateurishly and uninventively staged and absolutely high school choregraphy.. This show needs great comedic actors -- 90% of the cast were ot of that...continued

This is one of my favorite musical comedies and I was not let down by this fine cast and an amazing orchestra. Great comic timing and acting. All the vocals were spot on. I HIGHLY recommend seeing this show. Kudos Reprise!

Excellent direction and cast. This is burlesque which demands and receives classic comedian/comedienne timing from an expert cast.
Freud Theater is not the best venue with the orchestra onstage rather in a pit however the set decoration and most...continued

This is one of the best written musicals and it is beautifully performed here. Farces require impeccable timing and this cast proves to be up to the task. The set and costumes, though not innovative, are effective, and the 22-piece orchestra...continued

A loose staging of can't miss material. Lots of fun. The preview I went to featured a stand-in voice for leading lady who lost her voice. Echo Song was missing. Hopefully, she will get her voice back during the run. Good supporting cast.

This was an excellent show. It was funny, witty and engaging.

My seats were perfect, I paid 1/2 price and I had a great time - What more could you want?
