Saw a preview, so hoping the director sees that the show needs tightening up. Cutting 10-15 minutes would be better. Also, at least one lead character needs more coaching. Otherwise I recommend the show. The graphics are wonderful.

Totally predictable but entertaining musical like those we grew up on. And who doesn’t want to see Sting’s new creation?!?!

Sting's microphone needed to be turned up as it was difficult to hear him at times. Not much choreography. Mostly actors standing and singing.

I especially enjoyed the chorus numbers and the songs presented in the second act.

A mixed bag, but ultimately worth seeing. Despite being based on real events in the 1980s the characters are stereotypes, the plot predictable and depressing in equal measures, and some of the songs are pleasant but unmemorable. But, some of the...continued

After I saw the show, I read up on it and apparently it had a history where it was on Broadway, wasn't successful, but has since been drastically retooled, storylines and everything. But, what I saw really surprised me and I was pleased by the...continued

We were drawn to this play because of Sting. He’s not in his usual rocker role but of an ailing shipyard foreman leading his workers to strike against greedy management. The real principals in the play, lovers painfully separated by 17 years and...continued

Unfortunately, this version of this show is nothing like it's original Broadway production. Pivotal characters were missing (priest; love interest of Meg), songs and story lines were mashed together, the choreography I saw in Broadway was terribly...continued

I don’t go to plays as often as I would like, so I don’t know how this compares to other current shows, but I thought the actors and sets were great. The music (by Sting) was obviously good. The story is fairly simple but enjoyable. Sting is a...continued

The show was amazing, absolutely nothing wrong with it. Seeing Sting perform in his own masterpiece was beautiful. However, we were placed in seats at the Ahmanson that made it so you couldn't see the heads of anyone on the high platform where...continued
