I especially liked the male dancers and a nice surprise was the opera singing-sets were very nice-male lead Adam Pascal was wrong for the lead-sounded too much like Neil Diamond

4.0 star rating Chris from Buffalo, New York


Last night a group of us went to see the musical. When you take an iconic movie there are bound to be plus and minuses. They stayed pretty true to the move, some songs a bit long and unnecessary. Vivian did a good job but just didn’t come across as lovable. Her iconic lines were rushed and over the top! Adam did a great job capturing the essence of Edward. Supporting cast amazing. Not a weak link. I would see it again.

I wondered how they would transform the movie into a play and I wasn't disappointed. The music was great and the dancers did a fine job, but Happy Man, (Kyle Parker), and Violetta, ( Amma Osei), stole the Show. I was really surprised to see some of the negative reviews. We have been going to the Peace Center for years, and this was one of the better shows we have been to.

What a pleasant surprise. Expanded story wasn’t tedious or boring. Happy Man, Bernard Thompson & more was fantastic!! Young bell hop played his sight gags well & his facial expressions were better than the movie. Recommend it throughly for a fun, fun time at a Broadway Show! Was it a great production, no, yet extremely enjoyable. Don’t miss it!!

3.0 star rating Disappointed from St. Louis, Missouri


What happened to the theme song???? Ruined it for me....just threw it in at the end while everyone was leaving and it was awful. Loved the opera singers!! Vivian's role was too over the top...not at all like the movie. It was entertaining but was disappointed.

First of all I think trying to create a musical based on such an iconic and ridiculously well-loved movie ESPECIALLY one starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere was going to be an enormous feat. And set up to fail on a certain level through no fault of the actors'. With that being said here's my review. The actors and actresses voices were wonderful. Very talented in that respect. The acting itself was both good and mediocre at different times. I agree with another reviewer that it took me a bit to warm up to Edward but I found myself really liking him and his unconventional rasy voice. Vivian on the other hand was a character I really couldn't connect with. Her lines seems forced and somewhat unnatural. Which was really tough for me as she is my FAVORITE character in the movie. Although certainly musically talented, she just didn't deliver a believable performance in most scenes. Although, I am sure there is an element of bias in my review. I would not want to be silently compared to Julia Roberts. A I was also disappointed that a couple of iconic scenes in the movie were replaced with more socially accepted concepts. I certainly agree with the reasons behind the changes but disappointed nonetheless to see the original scenes missing or changed. The musical additions and dance numbers were fine. I certainly wasn't expecting the musical to be exactly like the movie itsel; I attend these shows because of my love for the theater. Overall, enjoyable but that was also because I was enjoying the experience with my family. I applaud the actors for taking this project on and my hope is the characters grow into their roles more so with time.

A fun mindless play. The audio was sooo loud it was hard to enjoy. Some of the softer songs were loud enough for the whole play. It was also hard to listen to “Edwards” song as he has a real country sound to his voice. Didn’t really blend well with “Vivian’s.”
