“Visual Masterpiece”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This show is perfect for people of all ages. The singing and acting is more than adequate for a long-running Broadway show, however, it is the costumes and scenery that really make this show. Even if you don't have kids, this show is a perfect way to spend an evening with friends and loved-ones.

“Everyone loved it!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Took my mom and sisters to this show the first night we were in New York. Even though we were tired, after the show started, we completely forgot about that. Be sure to sit on floor, characters come down the aisles.

Great show. We booked early and got great seats at the front of the balcony. If you get the chance to see it, do.

Reviewed October 11, 2013

great show however we went to a matinee performance and had a really noisy kid behind us!! This was not enough to spoil the show because the acting/singing etc was so good!!
