One of the best theatrical experiences I have ever had. Pure magic. Perfect for the holiday season--or whenever. Delightful in every way. The ensemble is Amazing. I can't believe these tickets are discounted--I may go again. Should be on Broadway.

You know the gamble you take each time you buy tickets to something? You hope this time it will be really great, if not spectacular. Well Despereaux hit the mark. Bullseye in fact. Fantastic performers, clever staging, great music, inventive -...continued

The acting, music, sets and storyline were all amazing. I wish I had gone earlier in the season. By the time I recommended it to friends, tickets were sold out:(
