Top notch performances. The singing was phenomenal and the acting was spot on. Drury Lane never seems to diappoint

Good production but the show itself isn't much - not up to Andrew Lloyd Weber expectations.

We expected far more than what this production gave us (which was a lead who overacted and oversang her role and was not convincing, a butler who did not sing a note in key all night, and a cast (that except for the actress who played Betty) was...continued

I had not seen this play before, but had heard that it was good. And it was! The way cinema, acting, singing and sound effects came together was brilliant!

Drury Lane's staging of this production was brilliant. Sound was excellent. The principal actors were outstanding in their acting as well as vocal execution. Norma had a spectacular voice, as did Max, her butler.
This show was every bit as good...continued

If you like old movies, you will love watching this one come to life. The voices and acting were wonderful...the set perfect for this production.

Great voices and casting. Over all I liked the play, some of it was a little confusing but it all came together as the play went on. Great seats as well, 5 rows from stage, dead center.

Will Ray, who played the lead character, was superior. I think he is as good as the original CD.

Good, a lot of entertainment for the price. I found show, or production, less than spellbinding considering the themes of madness and Hollywood surrealism with which it deals. At end of show lighting helped a little better to focus when Norma was...continued

Christine Sherrill is scintillating, captivating, and sensational as Norma Desmond.

Singing voices were OK and a couple of good songs but most were very
non-memorable. Couldn't really connect with most of the characters.
Certainly not Weber's best musical.

A little comedy, a lot of drama. The first few music numbers were a little difficult to follow so if you don't know the underlying story you will be a bit lost. The music, singing and acting were first rate, as usual. The second act pulls it...continued

Great singing, great casting, everyone is upbeat and very energetic. This show has some surprisingly good updated touches to keep it from being a tired old show. Norma Desmond should have looked a little older, although the script said she was a...continued

The production was phenomenal, the story/book is meh. The actors were flawless and Christine Sherrill was INSANE (in the best way possible) as Norma. Her voice is spectacular, as were Don Richards and Will Ray as Max and Joe. Every member of the...continued

Sunset Boulevard has a little darker tone to it but I thought the music was enchanting. The two lead actors were excellent both in the singing and the acting.

Drury Lane always comes through. All the actors were outstanding (both acting and singing). The sets were really well done, as always. Can't say I found the music/songs all that great; nothing really memorable although Christine Sherril sung...continued

As always,great performers at Drury Lane Theatre(OakBrook Terrace). Nice size theatre. Good theatre sets for each production. Adequate free parking(no reason to go into the city to be taken advantage of).
