Attended this show with my sister for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. The actors were wonderful and performed their hearts out. The singing was amazing. A great adaptation of the book. A must see....

It was really a great experience. The leads were wonderfully talented and the acting, singing and pace of the show make it well worth seeing. Well staged, well costumed, and fun dance numbers. We were all glad that we went!

The show was fantastic! I watched the movie as a teenager and loved it. The music was amazing and the actors put their heart and soul in the performance. The venue was great. Very intimate. There was not a bad seat in the house.
