FANTASTIC

What a joy this play was last night. Such a talented cast. The children were so good. It’s a feel good event and beloved by the audience. The show stopper was “Climb every mountain” by Ms Kidwell..superb. We ate dinner at Buds & Marilyn’s first and often go to Amis which I prefer. Who needs NY? Not us! Philly is so easy and such fun. Only issue is very close quarters at the Merriam.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC

This was the greatest musical I've ever seen 5/5

GLAD I WENT

Great dinner at Byrd & Baldwin before the show. Chrysler venue: unfortunate setup of restrooms (men one side; women other) with the lobby not being big enough. No middle aisle so lots of stepping over people. But good sight lines, acoustics and leg room. Show: fantastic. Maria was a talented singer and Mother Abbess was exceptional. Set, lighting, sound and stage movement great. Orchestra was great and the cast meshed well with the musicians. The cast matched my vision after watching the movie so many times. The kids were great. They could have left out the 2 new songs to shorten it. The love between the 16/17 yea- olds was not developed. The end of the singing contest and the final scene were awkward but I can't put my finger on why. I was emotionally moved during the performance and I enthusiastically stood with others for the final ovation.

MAGICAL

What a remarkable magical well executed show. From the first note to the last it was a wonderful show.

AMAZING SHOW

Saw this show twice and I could have watched it again! Amazing re-creation of the movie, not exactly the same, but the changes were interesting and fresh! The cast was incredible; their voices, enthusiasm and genuine portrayal of the characters was transformative! Recommend as a must see even if you aren’t familiar with the movie! No seat was a bad seat. The second show we went to was with my mom and we needed wheelchair access. The staff were so helpful and seats were great!!

SOUND OF MUSIC

Great performances, queen mother singing was better than film

5.0 star rating Rudy Delcuore from Staten Island, NY

OUTSTANDING

Very entertaining and the cast exceeded my expectations. The children were very talented and enjoyable to watch. The sets are impressive for an off Broadway production.
