The play was great - however I used to think there was no such thing as bad seats at Arena... NOT TRUE.

Not knowing the story behind this musical, I wasn't really sure what to expect. The play was good but a bit corny. I usually like something with a bit more depth.

The show was very well done. Actors, music, dancing were wonderful. My only complaint was missing quite a bit of the dialogue. Hard to catch with the quick pace of the show.
