Somewhat disappointed with the show. While the singers were talented, we were expecting more of a comedy routine like we had experienced years ago.

Worst show in 3 days!! If it wasn't for the comedy it would have been a total disappointment. Music too loud. Singers can't be heard . Poor choice of songs. 15 min break ended to be 30. One star is too many!
