The dancers,..., deserve celebration. They exude excitement, focus, drive and occasionally real joy when they are cutting loose to radio hits like "September" and "Boogie Wonderland." Their robust technique and physical prowess dazzle

Absolutely outstanding!,

The Maurices (White and Hines) have created one of the best musicals to be seen on stage in many years. I had the pleasure of seeing the performance during previews in Washington, DC and I also know that the show has changed since then. It has only gotten better.


If you like the music of EWF (and who does not) and can appreciate the genious choreography of the incomparable Maurice Hines, then this show is a "can't miss" for you. Sit back and enjoy!

I had the pleasure of taking my family (with out-of- town guests as well) to the theatre. We all loved it ! It is not a deep and meaningful story and is predictable and corney. But the music and dancing was FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!. I would see it again.

Hot feet is hot!!!,

reviewer: from Baltimore, Maryland
The show had one of the strongest cast of talented dancers I've ever seen on the broadway stage. The storyline was extremely strong especially compared to Movin Out which lacked story and dance ability. Fabulous performances from the lead characters coupled with great music, lots of costume changes and light/stage effects simply made it a joy. Vivian Nixon can dance her hips off however, Allen Hidalgo as the devil was my favorite along with Michael Balderrama. It was also great to see Keith David up there. I was in the front row and the show simply leapt off the stage for me. The packed audience gave it a standing ovation in NYC on 4/22 at the matinee. I would go back and see it again with a friend and will recommend it to others. Ignore negative reviewers who seem to want deep drama. It is a musical people! Enjoy the simplistic story line and just be entertained. It is a dance enthusiast's dream.

This show is the most high-energy, infectious hit in years. The dancing left me BREATHLESS and exhilerated. There is no weak link in this show. The whole cast is wonderful. I recommend everyone go see this show, it is guaranteed to be a wonderful, exciting and memorable experience.

I saw this show on Saturday - 8 PM - I was four rows from the stage and took my two daughters - 16 and 13. We were star struck, on our feet and totallly entertained for the entire time of this show. It was amazingly done, the music was awesome and the dancers were truly not to be believed. I enjoyed the story behind it and actually cried tears along with "Kelly's" mom. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW - IT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU NO MATTER WHAT AGE, OR WHAT COLOR YOU ARE.
