There is nothing like a Broadway show to lift your spirits! This was spectacular, especially the actor playing Benny (from original NYC cast). He is an extraordinary talent. I purchased a seat in "front of Tier 1." My seat was in the 15th room...continued

We were very disappointed--not in the show, but in the theater. The Goldstar seats were ok, but the sound system was horrible. We could barely make out the spoken dialogue, let alone the singing.(We speak Spanish, so language was not the problem.)...continued

Sad to say, we were disappointed that "In the Heights" had in-language, which was not English. We do not happen to know Spanish, so the actors' foreign words, and the audience's laughter, when it occurred, went totally over our heads. The...continued

The show was great music/stage/actors.

The only thing was sitting in the upper tiers is a little difficult without a good speaker/monitor that is directed towards our area. This is more of a flaw on the theater itself. I've seen other shows @...continued

Amazing production; very well done. I did not rate a 5 due to the assigned seats. With Tier 3 seats, it was difficult to understand the words to the songs, and hence the story line. I am not sure if it was the acoustics or the songs, but my...continued

Great seats, so so performance. Don't get me wrong the cast was top notch but the half english, half spanish dialogue combined with the loud orchestra made it hard to understand the actors. I was also disappointed in the choreography. They used...continued

Enjoyed the show! Found it a little hard to understand alot of the words but enough to follow the storyline. Singing and dancing is non-stop and kudos to the wonderful orchestra! Seats weren't that good....I would not recommend seats in Tier 3...continued

The cast was very strong vocally, and although the story-line was so-so, everything else was first rate. An enchanting evening, filled with spine tingling performances by an absolutely first rate cast. Highly recommended.

Excellent production. Lively and energetic although the second half seemed a little slower than the first. Some Goldstar member reviews mentioned difficulty understanding the lyrics. I think the problem is that at least 10% is in Spanish so if...continued

I can say it was only o.k. because the play-write did not take into consideration that the audience is not all bi-lingual! About one third of the show is lost because of the Spanish dialogue. There should be another way to convey what is being...continued

Although our Goldstar tickets were in a great location, I have to honestly say that none of us liked this play. We had heard about the show's Tony Award but have to question who was voting. The show tries too hard to amaze yet lacks a good story...continued

The story was engaging, the singing and choreography were very good, the setting was good to look at. Young people in the audience were right there with the characters and the plot. But I spoke to other women who are old enough to be the mothers...continued

If you liked Rent, this show is for you. Great music, singing, dancing. I suggest you listen to the Soundtrack beforehand as some of the lyrics are hard to understand at first.

This is a great show. I was disappointed when I found out Lin-Manuel Miranda would not be appearing in Orange County. However, Joseph Morales, was an outstanding replacement. Some people were even saying he was better than Miranda. The music...continued

Took a drive to Costa Mesa from West LA to see In The Heights as I had been told it was a "must see". OC PAC is certainly a lovely looking venue from the outside, modern, clean and stylish and the seats inside through Goldstar were good - located...continued

Lively presentaion but very difficult to hear the lyrics to many numbers. Vocal range of performers was outstanding. The event was around the 4th of July but no American flag was there.
