I'm so glad we paid half price for these tickets, because we only stayed for half of the show. I had high hopes for this play, as the storyline seemed interesting and potentially funny. We really enjoyed the first 15 minutes or so, and then it...continued

The cast was working very hard, and the sets+costumes+staging were awesome but man, that has to be the least-catchy set of songs in forever. Didn't click with me, but there were lots of appreciative chuckles around me, so maybe it was actually...continued

It was excellent. It was very well made and presented. All the singers and dancers were fantastic. I would very much recommend it
The only minus is that the ending was very anticlimactic, for the last two scenes, at the funeral and later with the...continued

Surprising beautiful scenery, very creative. We were upgraded and perfect seats. It kept our attention all the way through, better then the movie. I would see it again.

Goldstar was terrific, we had great seats. The play, however, was just okay. There are no show stopping songs or songs you sing, or even remember, after. The story line is minimal and does not develop until late in the second act. This show...continued

Big Fish was a Big Disappointment. I frequent MANY shows, large and small. This should have been a play versus a book. The pros were the talent and costumes. Terrific acting, singing ... but just a bad book. The script and songs either need a...continued

We liked it! We were in the “nose bleed” section, leg room is tight so if you are a bigger person beware, but the view of the stage was wonderful. There was a bit of trouble with the sound in a few of the songs & speaking parts, tough to hear, but...continued

This is a beautiful play, very colorful, touching, and heartwarming. Just as wonderful as the movie. There were a few scenes that differed from the movie screen play, but the adaptations seemed to work better for the musical version. Excellent...continued

It's a hard thing to review a musical. You know what you're getting... song and dance. Of which they did just that. Of course the story is different and that's not the problem. The lyrics were terrible, super chessy and at times so simple as being...continued

Ticket was available at the box office without any problem. Seat was a bit off center but with full view of the stage. Performance was inspiring. Sound was inconsistent and some actors were difficult to hear.

I loved the staging (scenery, costumes, etc.) and entertainment value of the show. I was less than happy about the plot and length of the show. The father/son relationship had no emotional impact on me. I really loved the first half, but not...continued

Big Fish? Big flop! Throw it back!

The show was boring. It shouldn't have been, but it was. It really seemed to lack energy & interest. The characters weren't endearing & it truly lacked the charm of the movie or the book. My friend felt the...continued

First, our seats were AMAZING! The show was good. I like several of the songs. My favorites were Start Over and the one about time standing still. I was a bit disappointed that the movie left me feeling like Ed's stories maybe - just maybe - could...continued
