The product and cast where great! First time see it on stage and well worth the wait.
ONLY real issue Do not attend with a Nationals night game, or drive. METRO couldn't run a lemonade stand. Waited for 40 minutes to get a train.

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.

Loved it! I enjoyed this production even more than the one I saw at Stratford. The actor who played Harold Hill was especially believable. Kate Baldwin sounded even better than she did in South Pacific. Kudos to Arena Stage.

This was a fantastic show and the stage size was perfect to see this show up close. Every seat is a good seat here. Best to take Metro as there was another event by the waterfront and parking was difficult. There were a lot of late entrances...continued

I just love the Music Man! The performers were so wonderful and the Harold Hill character was like listening to the original Music Man movie. I am so pleased I got to see this.

Very talented cast gave an outstanding performance in this Everyone's Favorite. Several actors were in last summer's highly successful Oklahoma.

What a treat to see a well made musical that really clicked with beautiful tunes interestingly arranged and with terrific choreography. The first number, a sort of spoken madrigal, is still fresh. All the performances were outstanding from...continued

A good, solid production. Always fun to see a musical at Arena and how they're going to stage it. Kate Baldwin was a terrific Marion, Burke Moses a charming and able Harold Hill. Choreography was fun and lively. But this was the first show I'd...continued

The best Marion and Professor Hill I've ever seen. I was aching for them to end up together. Super dancing. Stunning singing. Great from start to finish.

Music Man is an awesome show. You should attend the show!
This was my first visit to Arena Stage. The stage is square with seats surrounding the stage. My seat was awesome too!

This production brings back the spirit of the original. Using minimal props and set design, Arena focuses on the singing, dancing and sheer talent of the show's stars. Fun to see the kids used more as well. A hit for the whole family, and another...continued
