I loved the show! It was so good! They were wonderful actors and singers. The story line really touched on some deep themes and I liked how they made it current, the story persists through time.

It was great. Singing was awesome. Like the Jamaican accent they added to the show. They had no accents when I saw the play before.
Bought 5 people with me this time

The show was great the acting superb however we were sitting on the upper far left and the sound from the speakers was very muffled - it was hard at times to make out what the actors and actresses were saying. Overall a very good production. I...continued

Very disappointing.
Underwhelming dancing and singing sabotaged by criminally horrible sound problems that no one tried to correct throughout the entire evening .
Having experienced the magic of theater in the "Raisin in the sun" production in...continued

Great fun, vibrant cast, hysterical insertion of contemporary politics, and interesting convergence of 60th anniversary of the show and Lena Horne's 100th birthday.

One of the best Off Broadway productions I've seen in years. It should go on for years to come.

The show is a must see! Unfortunately, the leading women were portrayed in an unflattering light. I would have liked to see them portrayed in a more positive way. The play did have good, strong morals and lots of laughs and heart which is what I...continued

THE PLAY JAMAICA WAS AWESOME! THE CHARACTERS WERE REAL AND EAST TO RELATE TO. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY ABOUT A BOY AND A GIRL. I WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK TO CHECK OUT THE OTHER PLAYS.

The experience was nice. There was a sense of intimacy with the audience. The actors were great at their individual craft. The only minus was that the sound system was popping off and on during the performance, however, I would recommend.
