Awesome musical! Had great seats to watch this incredible performance. Moving, entertaining and well worth the price of admission. Glad I got to see the final matinee show before it’s gone.

The theatre was comfortable. Although we were in row three, which are the cheaper seats, it felt like the best seats in the theatre.
