5.0 star rating Claire from Wales, UK


I came all the way from Wales, UK to see the show, all I can say is it was worth it. It was so great to see a funny show, with fantastic songs, so many of the new musicals are dark & miserable. The cast was outstanding, Debra Monk was phenomenal, it has prompted me to write my first ever fan letter at the age of 38!!! PLEASE come to London so I can see it again.

What a delight to see a broadway show that makes you forget about the outside world for a while... The dancing was incredible, the costumes spectacular, the sets superb, the singing and orchestra fantastic! Just a wonderful wonderful musical that you shouldn't miss!

We saw the show on our last night in NY and we are so glad we did! We are great English fans of David Hyde Pierce in Frasier and he was quite amazing! We had no idea he could sing and dance so well too!! The cast are all so talented and the story quite different for a musical but very entertaining. We could only get seats in the rear of the mezzanine but the view was perfect and (so importantly) we could hear every single word spoken and sung. If you like musical theatre don't miss this one!

I left the theatre in sheer amazement. It has been awhile since I have seen a musical that embodied all the elements that make it a hit. Curtains has captured not only those elements, but the audience as well. From start to finsh, Curtains is a delight!

I didn't think it possible, but David Hyde Pierce surpassed his performance in Spamalot with his brilliant portrayal of the detective in Curtains. The entire ensemble was outstanding, with singing and dancing that rivals any other Broadway production I've ever seen. The witty script kept everyone entertained and laughing throughout. I had premium seats for the performance I attended, and although I'm definitely not sorry I did, I think even those people seated in the Mezzanine had a great view of the stage. Can actually say that it is a show that I would see and enjoy a second time around. I highly recommend it to any fun loving person looking for an entertaining night on the town. I rate this as one of my favorite Broadway shows ever, right up there with Wicked. Would be suprised to find anyone who sees this show to say they didn't love it!

5.0 star rating Valerie from Beachwood, NJ


This show is a definite must see for musical comedy fans... David Hyde Pierce is amazing, as is Debra Monk. I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of this show. The theatre is beautiful and the show within a show premise is so wonderfully entertaining. The sets are all stunning... I especially loved the "dream" scene with Nikki and her Detective - it reminded me so much of the old Ziegfield days. Everything about the show is total genius... even the conductor is terrific!! All I can say is... don't miss this show. It is sure to get a Tony award... no matter what, in my opinion it is a winner!!!

5.0 star rating John from Los Angeles, CA


This is a great and fantastic musical with a combination of boffo music, comedy and performances. David Hyde Pierce is the star and glue of the show but the show is well cast. Another great Kander and Ebb musical well directed and choreographed. There were several of us who saw the show and believe it should be a Tony contender as a show and David Hyde Pierce certainly as the lead male. It is a show you can see over and over again and the energy of the audience cannot help but draw you in.
