This is the best show we saw in years, not a dull moment, if you blink your eyes, you'd miss something. the only regret I had was about the theme song - unchained melody - it was sang two times, each time it was interrupted by knocking of the door the duet was beautiful, if they would finish the song, it'd be perfect. it’s a great show, we were glad we went, despite of the snowy weather.

I saw the show in New York with my husband and we both loved it. We saw four shows and this was our favorite. The special effects are amazing as well as the set, staging and lighting. It was truly a masterful work of art to watch. The music was fantastic too. Definitely go see it if you get the chance! I know I will.

I saw this show at Shea's in Buffalo last night and it was amazing. The voices are so powerful and we all know the storyline so that goes without saying how touching it is. The special effects (subway scenes!) were beyond my expectations. I thought the show would have me in tears but the way it was presented was touching just enough and the character Oda Mae Brown had me smiling and laughing. Kudos to Steven, Katie and Carla in their portrayals of Sam Wheat, Molly Jensen and Ode Mae/Rita Miller! The entire cast is great!

While it is hard NOT to enjoy a show from the second row in the Orchestra, this show was absolutely fabulous! It makes you want to go home and watch the movie, over and over and over again once the play is over. Oda Mae Brown/Rita Miller was HYSTERICAL. She had a lot of similarity to Whoopi Goldberg. Sam and Molly had EXCELLENT chemistry on the stage (I wouldn't be surprised if they're NOT dating in real life). While the music tended to get a bit too cheesy, the dancing was modern and not too "all over the place". Also, the use of Unchained Melody was fantastic, especially when they made it a bit more modern and made it "their own". I think that we have all seen the movie, know the romance, have shed the tears, etc. But this play is something that shouldn't be missed. It will take you back to Swayze and Moore, take you back to that unforgettable scene of making pottery together, etc. You will definitely enjoy this play! If you have the chance, you should SEE IT!

Just saw Ghost at the Pantages as part of my annual subscription. I certainly found it to be one of the most entertaining shows I can remember recently with talented cast and creative staging. Reading some of the old reviews from the NY production and, presumably the earlier cities in this tour, I can only imagine that some of these so called "professional" critics did not see the same production as I did tonight, or they are jaded by the nostalgia of the movie and refused to open their eyes to enjoy the experience of a new and vibrant cast and stage presentation of a classic story.
