It hurts to see that this muscial is being hated on because of the energetic plot. Yes, a lot of things are happening at once, which is why I recommend actually checking out the musical before hand (or reading the book because, quite frankly, it’s...More

Knowing nothing about the show prior to buying the tickets, I have to say we picked the perfect Broadway performance to attend. The theatre had been transformed to look like an old jazz club, full of red velour curtains and sepia drawings, glowing chandeliers and...More

I was lucky to see it with Josh Groban. It was a masterful dance of music, comedy & Russian drama. This theatre setting was spectacular. It is a shocking to me that such an incredible production was unable to sustain some internal staff difficulties. A...More

This one was hot and cold for us. Without doubt the staging and creativity are exceptional, some of the best we've seen. The theatre was retrofitted so that the stage and auditorium were merged into a seamless setting where the audience becomes part of the...More

As a Russian visiting the US, I was deeply offended by the use of my Russian culture, heritage and language. There was so many inaccuracies in the show but what hurt the most was how they twisted a beautiful Russia literature novel into some sort...More

This musical--opera, really--is closing in about three weeks, so go see it while you can. We got tickets for last Wednesday's matinee at half price at the TKTS booth. The staging of this show is like nothing I'd ever seen before. We and about 100...More

They set up the stage and seats as if you are in a lounge with tables and lighting used in the show. There are walkways throughout that the dancers and singers use. There is audience seating on stage where the actors interact with them. The...More

Most exciting, innovative ,uplifting experience. Tragedy that this show is closing! Great story, fabulous acting, beautiful music. Amazingly creative staging, one is never more than a few feet away from the action. Go see it before it closes!!!

I think anything risqué is sexual suggestion or speaking of sexual encounters. There might be some dancing that's a bit suggestive as well. I don't think it's appropriate for kids under the age of 14-15 just because it might... More
