Like the other reviewer, I also struggled to understand the dialogue due to the poor sound quality in the auditorium. We were on the first balcony and although we had good seats, it was annoying to have to strain to hear what was being said. It...continued

I was very disappointed with the sound in the auditorium...We were on orchestra level and really had to struggle to understand the dialogue (no we are not elderly or hard of hearing) which really took away from the whole experience...On a...continued

I'd have to agree with the other reviewers... parts of the dialogue were difficult to understand - I'm not sure if it was purely due to the accents or the sound/microphones. Otherwise we really enjoyed this and the dancing was spectacular!

I also thought the sound was EXCESSIVELY loud and I too, am NOT hard of hearing but had a difficult time understanding the dialogue.

I did, however, LOVE the sets, music, and dancing. The dancing was just terrific and the choreography the...continued

This show was absolutely fantastic. Even though it is three hours long the time passes quickly as the show always has something to hold one's attention. The boy who played Billy Elliot for this performance was Daniel Russell and he was superb. I...continued

I really enjoyed the performance. I like the movie, but wasn't that excited to go to see this (my mom wanted to go) & I was totally won over. The child actors/dancers/singers were great & I really enjoyed it!

My wife and I enjoyed this show very much. Yes, there were issues with the accent, but it's a British play and there should be an accent and Brits in general can be hard to understand. I appreciated that there were posters in the lobby that...continued

Good show, good sets, good actors/dancers, and good energy throughout! But the sound quality coupled with the accents made dialogue and lyrics hard to discern back in the U row of orchestra for many of the deeper voiced male characters/singers. ...continued

I enjoyed every moment of this show. Brilliant staging, fabulous dancing, raucous, intense, but skillfully paced. One moment I was weeping, the next laughing, the next cheering for the dancers' skill and spirit. This is the best I've seen in a...continued

I was disappointed in the staging at the Keller - - it was too dark. And the sound was both loud and indiscernible, which I'm sure was made worse by the uneven accents of the players. I went in wanting to love the musical as much if not more than...continued

Over all a 4 star rating. Music a 4 star, Dancing a 5 star. Only concern is a lot of anger (yelling) in ther story line...

By the end of the performance a really good time for all.

The first act was impossible to understand any words being sung in the songs, so you had to guess something was wrong but not know what it was about. Scattered throughout the play were similiar spots like this, but in general it was delightful. ...continued
