5.0 star rating Melissa from San Diego


The cast of this show was fresh, enthusiastic, and completely suited to their roles. I am a huge fan of the original film as well as Cole Porter and I was utterly dazzled. The actors made the characters their own while seamlessly paying tribute to Audrey and Mr. Peck. Stephanie Styles was a dream as Princess Ann and had me in stiches as well as in tears. I would definitely recommend this show. I will definitely be following this show on the rest of its journey to The Great White Way.

3.0 star rating The Greek Lady from San Francisco, California


Being a season ticket holder, I went to this play. It was part of the package and after reading the reviews I really was not looking forward to going. But to my pleasant surprise, I did enjoy it. I have seen better productions over the years but this play was not as bad as some other plays I have seen. It was nice to see a production where the cast danced well, had high energy, and a simple story line. Not everything need to be complicated. It was entertaining.

2.0 star rating Paula Rose from San Francisco, California


Musical fell flat on me. The princess and some other actors occasionally mis-used the microphone and really screamed into it. Princess didn't thrill me -- not natural when speaking her lines and sometimes shouts. Scenery was great and music good except when actors and actresses screamed into the microphones. The musical and cast both need more work and coaching. Georgia Engels was great -- knows how to work the stage and use the microphone.

Saw last night. Disappointed. Seemed to be a personal catharsis. I understand the horribleness of the Nazis. But this Judgemental piece missed an opportunity to explore what brought it about. The pride that affects us all, including some modern day Isralies. Until we see this giant flaw in human nature, we're doomed to repeat it, as we humans are today. Stoppard has the talent to explore this issue. Let's lyse the boil.

1.0 star rating JAY F. from San Francisco, California


Unwatchable. And like a previous review, I debated about leaving during intermission. Re-purposed Cole Porter songs felt like an afterthought; never once do they further the plot. Instead, they are familiar but forgettable interludes inserted to flesh out a rather basic premise. This whole play feels dated and not in a nostalgic, feel-good way. Also the sets, which broke down twice during the performance, are more complicated than required. I am no snob by any means, and the SHN season has been fantastic this year, but this cannot go to Broadway in this form. Georgia Engel is a marvel, but even she can't save this turkey. Save your $$$!

1.0 star rating Laura from San Francisco, California


The sweet young cast gave it a decent try, but the thing simply doesn't work. Dated stale jokes; forced musical numbers; simpering formulaic plot; and a Disney-esque color scheme to the entire set make this musical a must-miss. Additionally, the singers have voices that sound like modern Broadway (think "Frozen"), totally unconvincing in a 1950s theme, The orchestra played each Cole Porter song at the same intensity, without nuance or variation of volume, and the singing was the same way. I suppose a 10 year old would enjoy this silly candy tale, at most.
