3.0 star rating Paul Richard Jr from New Orleans, Louisiana


Started as you might expect building the story and saving the better moments. The cast is superb and talented. The middle of the show is unfortunately the "climax". The latter part of the second act just dies in impact, song and humor that it takes away from the experience. Julia has an amazing voice but the score doesn't let her shine. Sandy Is amazing and was a big part of the enjoyment factor. In conclusion, if your easy going and enjoy the theater, you will be satisfied. If your more particular and need spectacular, try Netflix.

3.0 star rating Stu H from Atlanta, Georgia


Overall, funny, fun, enjoyable but a bit weak in spots. Good music and sets but the dialog was sometimes hard to hear. Roommate Jeff stole the show! Needed more of a spark and consistency.

3.0 star rating Bill from Tulsa, Oklahoma


Acting was pretty good and there was definitely some good chuckles throughout. However, I don’t believe the vocals or the dancing were very good.

3.0 star rating Gloria Purdy from Tucson, Arizona


The music was too loud for the individual performers. When there was no music there was clarity with the actor but the orchestra played too loud and over road the voices. That was not good

3.0 star rating Stephen from Los Angeles, California


Not a great show. Failed attempt to leverage a great movie and the “feminist” statement was weak. The dancers were good but the numbers felt like they were just throw in. Most of the songs were forgettable.

3.0 star rating C. Molinari from Sarasota, Florida


No matter how talented the cast is, they couldn't make up for a bad script. I loved the original movie but was so disapponted with this version. This seems to be a pattern in this seasons "remake" musical versions of movie comedies.

2.0 star rating JR Norton from New Orleans, Louisiana


Based on the applause factor, i felt like the performance was enjoyed by the many, however, I found the subtle messaging and the new progressive wave reflected in the casting and performance way more than I can handle. Would have been a decent high school play, but way off target for my expectations.
