Wonderful. Christopher Tierney can both dance and act. All cast members were great. The final lift made me cry. I was watching post shoulder surgery but forgot my pain. I'd go again.

This show was great. It followed the story lines of the movie and the characters fit their roles. I was rolling on the floor when Lisa did that Hawaiian talent show song and dance. A must see for everybody. Not fit for children. Many restaurants of all types within walking distance.

My daughter and I saw the show together and we both loved it. I'm not sure why I expected it to be a musical (slightly disappointed that it wasn't). but the talent and energy of the cast made up for that. I completely disagree with the previous review stating that the show is not suitable for tweens.. To each their own. The cast was fun, the music great, and the evening memorable!!

So disappointing. Not a family show, and not suitable for children 10 and up. I saw the movie as a young teen, loved it. This show focused on dancing simulating sex acts, much more risqué than the movie. The description should have stated that so parents could make a more informed decision. I would have left the kids at home. The many drunk people in the amphitheater appreciated those dances, as they were yelling out their appreciation. More suitable for girls night out. Again, the description was not accurate. Only little bits of some original movie songs were included, and the more traditional dances seemed like an afterthought.
