This is a nearly flawless performance of "The Music Man." Whether you are new to the musical, or have seen the movie version of it in the past, you will love this version. Kate Baldwin, the actress who plays "Marian the Librarian," has a...continued

Absolutely outstanding. One of the best musical performances we have seen--and we are very frequent theatre-goers. Production superb in all respects--go if you can. We thought it superior to Arena's production of Oklahoma which was well...continued

Love the show. Arena Stage is the best venue in DC. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Love the close proximity to the show, and was able to meet the actors after the show outside. Fantastic.

This was one of the first musicals I'd ever seen as a little girl, so was fun to watch it again as a "young girl" in her 60s! I took my 14 year old granddaughter (who loves musical theater and she really liked it too) and my 12 year old grandson...continued

GREAT show! Singing was superb, acting was great, the story still holds a message for today.

It's quite amazing how Arena can put on these big Broadway musicals on that somewhat small stage, and make you feel like you're seeing the real deal. Great talent all around -- and can't beat the music. Wonderful!

The actors were excellent and made the musical well beyond my expectations. Couldn't say enough good things about how beautifully performed this was. The theater-in-the-round concept made it so that there wasn't a bad seat in the entire house. ...continued

A good, solid production. Always fun to see a musical at Arena and how they're going to stage it. Kate Baldwin was a terrific Marion, Burke Moses a charming and able Harold Hill. Choreography was fun and lively. But this was the first show I'd...continued

My husband and I enjoyed Music Man. It has "aged" well.
All seats at Arena stage are all good.

Outstanding performance; very well staged; good music, but not as I remembered it from seeing it previously both on the stage and many times in the movie.

We saw this in previews and clearer still needs more time running the show. Good chorgraphy, great singing, but for some reason for me it didn't connect. Maybe after a couple weeks will be a stronger show.

The acting and performance was was done well. My biggest issue was the material. The show felt dated. This show had 1400 showings while at the same time West Side Story had 700. West Side Story has much more memorable songs. I also wish they...continued

Very good production, great singing voices and dancing, excellent family entertainment (tho little boys in front of me didn't like the kiss at the end!). As an adult, there was a lack of chemistry between the two leads but other than that, it was...continued
