LOVE SINATRA, LOVE TWYLA, LOVED COME FLY AWAY

If you love listening to Sinatra and watching Twyla Tharp you will adore this show. I smiled from the first minute to the last. Frank can't be surpassed and the choreagraphy was sophisticated and gorgeous. What a treat. I'm going again!!

MORE STYLE THAN SUBSTANCE

I was at the opening night last night - after the first couple of numbers I felt as though I'd seen the whole show , actually the show grows on you after a few more songs. I was not prepared for the crazy elements of danger in Tharps choreography. These dancers do unbelievably unnatural things with their bodies and go hurling to the floor or into each other, or over someones head in a split second. The stage gets so busy sometimes you don't know where to look for fear you may miss something.These dancers work for their money -hard ! The Sinatra music is intoxicating as always , and the band is superb. The singer in the band is fabulous ,the lighting very well done, sound clear as a bell . The dancers tend to over act for the back row however and this can be distracting, and they don't really have any believable connection to each other onstage. Another element of distraction are the cheesy costumes -these hardworking dancers deserve better . All in all however, I was very entertained!

COME FLY AWAY

If you are a big fan of Sinatra music you will like the music ...it is as if old blue eyes is there singing. The sound is fantastic!! The dancing is good but the story was bla!! I have seen Moving Out by Tharp and was inpressed with the music as well as the story told in dance. Come fly Away was average by Broadway standards!!

DISGUSTED AND ANNOYED

Mixed review of this show. One act towards the end was horribly pornographic - one of the dancers was actually feeling herself up while the other dancers were dry humping one another - absolutely disgusting - Mr. Sinatra must be rolling over in his grave - God Bless him. the best part was the last 2 songs - My Way & New York New York - you felt Frank there himself. That last 10 minutes made it all - but that was all there was. otherwise is was disturbing to watch. Stop selling SEx and just dance - sing - do something. If I wanted to watch an untalented porno, I would've stayed home for $5 - not gone to NYC for $125. Poor Poor Frank!

BORING AND DISAPPOINTING.

My friends and I were so excited about this "musical" when we got our tickets! However, it was not a true musical in the sense that there is barely any live singing. Going to Broadway in New York, you'd at least expect a live male singer singing Sinatra's songs. Sadly, that wasn't the case. Instead, Frank Sinatra's voice was merely dubbed over a live band. The dancing was incredible at first but got boring after the first couple songs. The choreography was extremely repetitive and the dancers for the most part weren't together at all. The dancers were all great as individual performers but group dances were all over the place. The costumes and set also rarely change further adding to the unvaried aspects of the production. The friends I was with fell asleep multiple times during the show and during intermission, the chatter in the bathroom line was mostly about how (and I quote) "boring" the show was.
