First tier balcony is fine. Would not recommend 2nd tier, it's too far up. Enjoyed the first act the most. It has all the catchy tunes. The show is about 3 hrs long.

Awesome event! The costumes are gorgeous, the music is outstanding. The music should have projected further into the audience. Overall this play is a must see.

This is a very enjoyable production. It was wonderful to hear the musical numbers performed by operatic voices, and Morris Robinson (as Joe) singing "Old Man River" was deeply moving. The plot isn't of particular interest to me, and I think...continued

What happens when you combine opera and a classic Broadway show...PERFECTION! Everything about this performance is excellent. A cast of over 100 consist of professionally trained opera singers, skilled dancers, and talented actors. The costumes...continued

From beginning to end, the show was wonderful -- wonderfully staged, wonderfully performed, great new talent was introduced, and -- even with sitting in the next to back row in the first tier balcony (which was a disappointment) -- a thoroughly...continued

Agree with other reviewers that the performers were great, but not so much the actual show which was trite and uninteresting at many times...we left at intermission. But a good use of Goldstar because I'm sure we would not have gone at all...continued

The members of the cast were all very talented, but it wasn't my favorite show. There were few catchy tunes, and the lyrics to most of the songs were very awkward the way they were constructed. Not memorable - was disappointed in the show, NOT...continued
