Extremely entertaining! Fabulous musical/satire, California- style production! Costumes were hilarious! If you think you've seen it once, go back again because its always changing! We always choose the pre-assigned seats so we don't have to wait in line but any seat is great!

I can see why this show has been playing 40 years! Fabulous entertainment . We went our last night and great ending for our vacation. I highly recommend seeing it-- adults. Also, eat first only wine and bad coffee served.
