Loved this show! Great cast and loved the 60's, 70's and 80's music! Wasn't just music though. There was dancing, history and comedy!

My husband likes Country music and my favorite is Retro Rock however we both enjoyed this show. We were able to savor the flavor of many styles of music with stunning costumes and scenery. A treat for all your senses!

I went with my 12 year old son and we both enjoyed the show. Very talented singers/dancers. My son enjoyed the comedy too. There are restaurants in walking distance at barefoot landing which makes it convenient to eat before the show.

We have been to this theater a few times over the years and this year was similar to previous years, but there does seem to be a transition towards younger families. I think this... More
