The show was absolutely unexpected at points, the cast did a fantastic job remastering the movie! I wish this was running for a longer time period! The show should run again next year!🖒

The show is amazing, better than the TV Live version or the movie. I can understand why this show was nominated for a Tony. Everything from the acting, singing to the dancing was flawless. The cast is incredible but I have to give a special shoutout to the children in this show. I was highly entertained and only wish we could see it again.
Eloise and Tom Hendershott from New Orleans, Louisiana
A wonderful show and great entertainment! The set was very well done and clever. The Old Man Character, Chris Swan, was absolutely hilarious! But hands down the children in the show are stunning, so talented and amazing, especially the boy who played Ralphie, Tommy Druhan, for our show! He gave such a performance and wonderful voice. Fun for the whole family!

To the person in Dallas who claimed this production was racist - your smarmy, self indulgent, political correctness is downright laughable. There is NOTHING racist about this production

GOOD SHOW, POOR SEATING
I would have enjoyed the show, so much more if I had not sat in middle. This theater is not conducive for children actors as the seats are not on a good slant. You need to sit on the sides or balcony so you can see the children. I was very disappointed.

DRY AND RACIST.
This musical started out extremely slow with humor that try as it might - could just never land. I found the characters completely unlikable, annoying, and loud. The racism I witnessed within this production was appalling, If the musical scene where they made the poor boy Randy dance around like a stereotypical Native American with his hand over his mouth wasn't enough - there was absolutely no diversity within the entire ensemble - except for one Asian man who later appeared to recreate the incredibly insulting Chinese dinner scene. You'd think if they took the time to add terrible jokes and songs, they could try and change the flat out offensiveness of the original 80's movie.
H. Murphy from Sacramento, California
Trite, predictable, racist, and totally boring. Also the sound system in the Memorial Auditorium was bad. Sounded like the cast was screaming their lines and when the children actually screamed it was ear splitting. Save almost 3 hours of your life and take a walk or catch up on TV shows you missed.

WHY WAS THIS EVER MADE INTO A MUSICAL?
No stand out number. The best one liners from the movie fail to have the proper timing when done live. The kids in this show are certainly talented relative to other kids their age - but that doesn't mean they are good enough to be worth a full price ticket as part of the season. If you like the movie - watch the movie. If you don't like the movie - you aren't going to like this play. If you like paying full price to see a really well done high school musical - more power to you.
