The show was lovely, light and clean. If your child knows Disney they would enjoy and learn from. 'Walt' has an amazing voice and puts out a great performance. His brother too. Get parking directions ahead, it is kind of a maze to find your way...continued

Facility is very difficult to find so I suggest you leave early. As far as the play, the acting and music was very good. The story line needs some work. I can understand that if you are doing a play about Walt Disney it would be difficult to cover...continued

Great show, however was very upset that the date I had tickets to was at the last minute cancelled and then to rebuy tickets was more expensive with less options because it was last minute. It was very unprofessional and disappointing.

The venue and the seating were fine--Freud is a small playhouse where pretty much every seat has a fairly good view. The play was problematic--the score has a couple entertaining numbers, such as "Just Like the Good Old Days," and "Paper and...continued

The show had some entertaining parts but overall I would say it was just OK. it was slow and concentrated mostly on Walt's disappointments rather than success. Too many musical numbers as well. It has potential, very talented actors and great...continued

This show has promise, but it felt a bit long. The book constantly feels like it's trying too hard to be "magical", and much of the music felt cliche and rather bland. But the production design, direction, and performances were simply brilliant,...continued

We have seen many musicals over the years. This is one of the best! Great story and the cast and musicians were absolutely wonderful! Really hoping that "When You Wish" finds great success!

boring

Interesting story but there were too many musical numbers and none of them were memorable. The actor who played Walt didn't have much presence and his voice was rather cliche musical theatre. The actors who played Walt's brother was good and...continued

Terrific performances, music & choreography. Loved the way they told the story with film footage in the background. Excellent show

"When You Wish" is a neo-musical that is still working on finding its legs. The 10/17/14 performance was a real roller coaster of good & bad. Some musical numbers were so polished while others lacked cohesion. The title song, WYW, is just OK,...continued

I brought a Disneyphile who enjoys quirky plays and he enjoyed the show. I napped somewhat.

Incredible all the way around. One of the most enjoyable, inspiring original musicals I've seen in many many years. I loved it so much I went twice and would go again. Don't miss it.

Not exactly what I was expecting. It dealt mostly with Walt's struggles, and not enough with the payoffs. You also get no sense of Walt the showman - he was almost a "Willy Wonka type", and yet the play didn't capture that aspect of his...continued

Six of us attended on Sun. Oct 27. Everyone loved the show including my 15 year old grandson who wanted to stay home and play computer games with his friends. After the play I asked him if he was glad he came and even he side it was great. We...continued
