It was a good show. I was well entertained with the music and dancing. I liked the 60's and 70's music best! The 80's could have been represented with better songs than they did. I would go see it again.

This started out with a great opening sequence but the rest of the first half was just so-so. The voices of the singers and the skills of the entertainers was very good! The second half was very good. Glad we didn't leave.

Both sets of seats are on opposite ends of row 1. So you will have a side ways view of the stage. I have never preferred front row unless it is a concert where you can stand, sing and gyrate. Not so in this theater. Seats... More
