Enjoyed it more than we all expected. Sure it's an old and predictable piece, but thought Burke Moses hit the perfect note as Harold - suave and engaging without being over the top or show stealing. Kate Baldwin has such a beautiful voice!! The...continued

Great theatre, classic show, wonderful choreography and singing. We had the understudy for Marian and she gave a very good performance --beautiful voice. Only downside is that parking can be a little time consuming -- so don't plan on arriving...continued

Wonderful production! The acting, singing, and dancing were all equally good. I loved the inclusion of the high school marching band at the end.

Absolutely delightful! Can't ask for more. The new building is wonderful, as is the ability to park below the bldg....and even to arrange parking in advance. Just great!

Although we purchased this ticket months ago, Arena gave us a back-row seat. And while I usually have no trouble hearing dialogue in theaters, I did have a lot of trouble following the dialogue here (as well as some of the song lyrics.) I think...continued

Except perhaps for a Nats game, this is the best cure for the week after the apocalyptic storm and resultant power outage. The cast was sufficiently electric to power a small town, and the experience was magical. I had forgotten not only how...continued

Review from Ginny Moser

It was one of the best productions of this musical I have seen--and I saw the original on Broadway in 1959! I could understand every word, and the singing was beautiful and the choreography and staging amazing. I have seen both leads in this...continued

My first time at the new Arena Stage Complex. Enjoyed the production, thought the use of performance space at the theater was creative. All seats appear to have good sightline to the stage, sound is good, and the atmosphere generally more informal...continued

My husband and I saw The Music Man on Broadway in 1959 and have seen it many times since (movies, high school productions, professional productions, etc.), but this is one of THE best. We highly recommend it. We could understand ALL of the...continued

Went with my brother and sister to celebrate their birthdays. It was just the sort of light show we wanted after a blazing hot day with no power. On Sunday evening the tickets were very reasonable and we found parking on the street a moderate...continued

Wonderful production. The two leads are outstanding. And the little boy who plays Winthrop is also excellent. A great show. Would like to see this again.

Fabulous! The lead actors were perfectly cast for both acting and vocal performances. The supporting cast, sets, costumes, and other components were equally fine.

Great show! Uplifting! And what a treat to have the high school band play Seventy-Six Trombones at the end!
