It ended too soon! Go before it's gone. I usually don't like musicals, but this was really good! Thank You Goldstar

Wow! What wonderful talent! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves taking a trip down memory lane. You'll be leaving either humming or singing one or more of the tunes performed. Great energy!

Seats were outstanding. Theatre is a gem. Talent in the show was great. Who directed this? It was a mess. Somehow the director believed that constant movement on the stage was necessary. It's not for this type of caberet format. It was more...continued
