Loved the show - excellent, exciting, different. The show, the presentation and the costumes were visually amazing.

You must go to this at least once in a lifetime - its amazing. Choreography is world class and obviously the show is also as now attracts entries from international destinations. The whole city comes out for this.

If you ever get a chance to be in Wellington for the WOW festival then go - it was the best show I've seen in a lifetime of shows. So skilled and professional but hard to take in all that was happening on stage. It's not just a women's thing either though this was the demographic of the audience.

for our first ever WOWA entertainment, we had high expectations, and some friends said, you are going to Cirque du Soliel the week previous, wonder which you prefer. It was fantastic, right up there - thinking only disappointment was how long the final set was, and then very late, it was the prize winners, .

What an amazing show. Full on and just a wonderful overload of the senses. Never seen anything like it.Certainly worth seeing it at least once in your lifetime. Must admit there were times where I didn't know where to look as it was so busy. All the same it was just fantastic

this is the fourth time I have attended the show and it just gets better each time. The art is amazing. The seats are uncomfortable and squashed but it's only two hours of your life so you get over it. A must do for anyone coming to Wellington

First time at wow and it was fantastic. I would suggest seating about g row. Not too closer that you cannot take the whole view but close enough to see the detail of the costumes. Music was great. Wil plan to go again for sure.
