5.0 star rating from Schenectady, New York


More than I could have expected. It's hard to even come close to the original movie cast, but this cast is pretty close. The sets and lighting were visually stunning and captured the emotions of the story. The children were adorable with out being annoying. Enjoyed the added moments of humor in the script. I'll just say the "flags' were unnerving but necessary for the backdrop of Edelwiess. The way the captain performed it last night 4/8/17...perfection. Thank you all for working so hard.

Even though this show is a very familiar one, the cast made it feel new again. All of the voices were extraordinary and the staging was wonderful. I would highly recommend seeing it!

Great dinner at Byrd & Baldwin before the show. Chrysler venue: unfortunate setup of restrooms (men one side; women other) with the lobby not being big enough. No middle aisle so lots of stepping over people. But good sight lines, acoustics and leg room. Show: fantastic. Maria was a talented singer and Mother Abbess was exceptional. Set, lighting, sound and stage movement great. Orchestra was great and the cast meshed well with the musicians. The cast matched my vision after watching the movie so many times. The kids were great. They could have left out the 2 new songs to shorten it. The love between the 16/17 yea- olds was not developed. The end of the singing contest and the final scene were awkward but I can't put my finger on why. I was emotionally moved during the performance and I enthusiastically stood with others for the final ovation.

Saw this show twice and I could have watched it again! Amazing re-creation of the movie, not exactly the same, but the changes were interesting and fresh! The cast was incredible; their voices, enthusiasm and genuine portrayal of the characters was transformative! Recommend as a must see even if you aren’t familiar with the movie! No seat was a bad seat. The second show we went to was with my mom and we needed wheelchair access. The staff were so helpful and seats were great!!
