Lack of music in some scenes was too quiet and only depended on the actors's voices or performances, which was little too long in some scenes. I was on the 4th row from the front, but I couldn't hear some actor's songs. It was hard to look up the subtitles on top of the stage during the song and try to follow what's happeneing on the stage, and I got little headache at the end. The stage setting, lighting, and ensemble dance scenes were very creative and enjooyable. I wasn't convinced by the ending, and felt issues were unresolved by Billy or his daughter. The actress portrayed Jordan was great, especially during the scene when Billy died. The show ended little before 11pm, and I think most of the audiences were tired by then. I was little surprised there was no standing ovation for this show.

Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s favorite collaboration, _Carousel _was named the best musical of the 20th Century by Time magazine. Julie and Carrie are mill workers in 1870’s New England who fall in love, one with carousel barker Billy and the other with fisherman Mr. Snow. Their lives become very different with the dark fate of the barker and the success of the fisherman. But when angels give Billy a second chance, love, loyalty, forgiveness and faith are the abiding themes given to his child and to the audience. Come hear the great songs and music, “If I Loved You,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “The Carousel Waltz,” and much more.
