Review from Linda C

We were pleased with the seats. The box office will call is very slow, so plan to get there in plenty of time.

Many of the actors had wonderful voices but the lead woman uses a soprano voice that is difficult to understand.

I enjoyed the musical. My husband found it hard to distinguish the different words of the songs. Some music was a little loud for the small space of the beautiful theatre. the cast did a wonderful job.

Pretty terrible. Our seats were on the side. The scenery protruded and blocked the view of the actors. Then when we saw the actors 50% or more we saw the back of there heads. Why can't we select our seats before we purchase tickets instead of...continued

The play was great as were the talent. We both immediately thought of our grandparents' experience coming from Eastern Europe to the Lower Eastside. The theater as PERFECT! Not a bad seat in the house. And the sound system was equally as good. A...continued

The show, which was a musical, had marvelous singers and a story that was happy and sad and completely absorbing.

Review from Goldstar Member

The stage is too small for the number of performers. With the frequent changing of the set coupled with the number of performers on stage it gave the impression of a lot of confusion going on.
The lead singer must have been off her game that...continued

Review from Goldstar Member

Thought the play was pretty bad. It had an amateurish feel to it, some of the singing seemed off-key and the female singers were screechy. We were a party of three and we were all happy to leave at intermission. We feel cheated for the amount of...continued
