Wow! This is one if the best productions I have ever seen. Spine tingling from beginning to end. The cast, orchestra, staging, everything was superb. This show should run and run. I was having to compare it with the Royal National Theatre production back in 1989, a wonderful production and hard to beat but the 2018 Broadway production wins hands down. Wish I could see it all again. Book your tickets now and go and enjoy one of the greatest musical ever written, performed with a freshness and spark by a five star cast.The highlight of a holiday in NEW York.

Spellbinding! Saw this on Thursday evening. 3/23 after having been up since 3:30am. But would have stayed to see it again if they had performed it again immediately after our first viewing. Had my son in the theatre lobby at intermission to take my 10 year old granddaughter back to the hotel if she crashed half way through but she was so engaged she refused to leave and we all had trouble getting to sleep that night because we kept thinking about the show- the incredible sets, the story and songs and the world class talent. After a cram-packed long weekend in NYC (including seeing Frozen, Wicked and Mean Girls) we all (including the 10 year old) agreed Carousel was our hands down favorite experience! Bravo!!!

The voices, the music, the sets and the dancing were all fantastic but there was no chemistry between any of the actors. If you don't feel the love and instant attraction between Billy and Julie then the rest of the story is flat. It's the first time that I have either seen the play or movie or just listened to the soundtrack that I didn't cry and that totally surprised me.

We saw this show from two points of view - one had never seen the show before, I had played Billy in a version of it some years ago. We were both blown away - Joshua Henry was excellent and I know I was well outclassed. My boy Bill was a showstopper in itself. Rest of the cast were great - Jigger included. Production great. The audience gave the show a standing ovation spontaneously. My partner raved all night about the show and the next day too. Yes the seats are a tad tight.

Not sure which superlative to use without sounding corny. From orchestration and choreography to acting and singing, the talent is the very best that broadway has to offer! The dancing showcases the ballet background of many of the cast members. Some of them being principal dancers with major ballet companies. Wonderfully inventive set design. And the voices, Oh the beautiful voices. I only hope they make a cast recording. I saw the show 5 days into previews and did not experience any of the negatives expressed by other reviewers. Our seats in the second row center were excellent for viewing, but legroom was a little tight in this theater.

The singing and dancing we’re generally OK. Some of the singers sounded like opera singers. But the acting overall and the storyline were Detached and disjointed. Way too much going on, too long, and difficult to connect with any of the characters. I never felt their pain or joy..I fell asleep. I admit having a big meal before seeing the play could have contributed, but I have done that before seeing other plays and this is the only time I fell asleep. (Recently saw kinky boots and A bands visit and enjoyed both very much). It was just not a good production overall. In a successful play you have to connect with at least some of the characters. I connected with no one here. It is a nice theater and my seat was OK, absent a pillow. Can’t recommend this

What we thought

touching Timeless BEAUTIFUL

The dance is breathtaking and demonstrates how the cycle of destruction will keep occurring unless a change is made.

Carousel's return to Broadway could not be timelier - the iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical explores domestic violence in Maine in the late 19th century as well as prejudice, jealousy and control.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
