The vocals of the entire ensemble were brilliant! Am extremely strong cast. Violet, the musical is a little bit country with adult themes and may not appeal to everyone or young children. I was so impressed by the talent and cast. Congratulations...continued

I enjoyed this very much because it is a character rather than spectacle driven musical, well suited to a theater like Ford's. The music is varied and energetic, though the amplification made the lyrics difficult to follow and every piece had the...continued

It left me with tears of joy! Beautiful music, a wonderfully talented cast...marvelous voices. You can't ask for more. This show should continue to fill houses.... and could easily go on the road! \
Best I've seen in the last year!

The story starts slow, but hang in there. The story and the characters are totally believable by the end. Toe-tapping music. Clever staging; I especially enjoyed the map. Definitely get a ticket and enjoy before the end of the run.

Musical, especially the first act, was a bit long. I have no idea why there is no actual disfigurement in the female searching to remove the stigma.
But the music was well performed with many different styles.
Fords does not have great sight...continued

Our seats were very good (first two on the aisle on the right, 9th row). The performers all were talented, but the storyline just wasn't that compelling for us. While I get the metaphysical idea of us having to envision the scar, I feel like...continued

Plus Ford's Theatre is a terrific venue.

The performers were excellent in the play, and the story was an inspiring slice of life. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that the story line was a little slow at the start, but the second half of the play was uplifting as the...continued

A very nice show! I like the character development, but the protagonist's choices didn't make sense at the end.

An interesting story; good songs, good actors...but nothing about the show really knocked my socks off.

I love the intimacy, of Ford's but our rear orchestra seat view was blocked by a pillar. While manageable, the obstructed view detracted from our enjoyment. This production did not get a good review in the Post, but I'm glad I went. The cast is...continued

The theater is easy walking distance from the Metro, which made it very convenient to get to. I hadn't been to the Ford Theater in many years, and the old, uncomfortable straight back chairs had been replaced by more modern and comfortable...continued
