First of all, the Bad. This is a misandristic feminist musical play. The men are violent, stupid or foolish people. The women are oppressed, heroic, or innately good. It is also sexually vulgar, to the point of embarrassment, as staged.

Good show, although it could use some cutting. First act too long. I had trouble understanding all the actors at first, I guess because of the southern accents, but it got much better in the second act. Not a lot of choreography but what there was...continued

Outstanding cast, with voices that filled the entire room without mics. Wonderful production.

Wow, the performance you get from the Mercury Theater was as good as something you would experience on Broadway for triple the price. The voice, the skill, the intensity was sensational. The color purple was so good, I just bought a few extra...continued

It was a little cold inside the theater. Overall I loved the intimate setting. There wasn't a bad seat in the house.

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!

This was an outstanding production. The acting, dancing, and especially the singing were far superior to the last three or four shows I've seen through Broadway in Chicago . Plus those shows cost two to three times the price. Definitely a...continued

We saw the Broadway production. Although a smaller venue, this production was superb. The cast was terrific. The singing was top notch. Great show. See it!

The show itself was fabulous. Great talent from every member of cast. Goldstar was very accommodating in helping us with accessible seating.

Confusing plot, voices drowned out by the music, "accents" so strong as to be unintelligible; all in all a seemingly interminable and greatly disappointing performance.

This musical greatly exceeded my expectations. The Mercury Theater is small and intimate which was a great way to see this production. I had seen Flashdance the week before and it was disappointing so I was not expecting greatness from a regional...continued
