I splurged to take my daughter to the show for her 7th birthday and neither of us were disappointed! Spectacle was not just for spectacle's sake, Taymor did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life without it being "over the top". Overall a birthday she will not soon forget!

5.0 star rating Amy from Wales, UK


first you do not no what to expect because of the transition from screen to stage, well all I can say is this is the most inspiring heart warming incredible Broadway experience from beginning to end. Laughter, Happiness and I was moved to tears, the whole cast and people behind it were incredible, the vision and the depth of the stage and performance, I would recommend this show to anyone, a must see!

I saw this show 4 years ago with my family, and we were all just blown away. I thought it was the best Broadway show I'd ever seen (out of a dozen or more). Now I'm bringing a favorite cousin to New York. She has never seen a Broadway show, and this is the one I picked to bring her to see!! I loved it and can't wait to see it again. Yes, I would take children to see grandchildren were 6 and 10 when we saw it, and they loved it.

I saw this in London and was so enthralled I saw it again in New York. Fantastic costumes! Inspiring.

5.0 star rating John Velasco from Charlotte, NC


My grandparents took me and my brother and cousins to see this show in Greenville, SC, while it was on tour. This show had so much scenery that the actors could not fit backstage but had to hang out in the lobby. The singing and choreography was phenomenal and the creativity exhibited by the costumes was breathtaking. I have never been able to see another show without remembering it since.

Amazing show, loved every minute. Will always remember my 43rd birthday as this show made it, along with being in New York. Highly recommend, there are no bad seats in this theatre.
