AWSOME!,
Jul 20, 2006
reviewer: from Cleveland , Ohio USA
The best musical i have ever seen and i have seen 60! Dirty rotten scoundresl is perfect in evry way. The material is a bit on the adult side but not as bad as the producers if that gives you any idea. I recomend this show for children 12 - 13 and above . Its full of laughter , fun . glamor , and very humable show tunes . Out of evry musical in new york , i will always recomend this one. For good seats , the imerial thatre has no partial view , so any seats are great , just stay away from the back of the orchestra and the rear mezzanine , like all thatres. Tell me about you experience at DRS! or questions or comments , mariontony@hotmail.com

Fantastic show Uncomfortable seats,
Aug 26, 2006
reviewer: from NJ
This was, by far, the funniest musical i've ever seen. It has the most clever use of present day events worked into it's songs. However, I sat in the orchestra row p, had a great view but, once you sat down, you could not move! I am not a big guy, 5'10" and my wife is 5'3". Our knees were into the seats in front of us. If you are clostrophobic you would not last a NY minute. It goes without saying, we could not cross our legs or find a comfortable position. The seats are also narrow and will not be comfortable for a portly person. My rating would have been a 5 if the theater were more considerate of its patrons than sqeezing in more seats and improving thier bottom line.
