Should have named it WOKE2022. Ruined the original story line. Too long and very hard to follow. Saw many people looking at their watches and even falling asleep. The actor who played Mayo forgot the words to the opening song and knew he got caught. Song right before intermission woke people up. I would not recommend seeing this performance.

3.0 star rating Ann R from Boca Raton, Florida


I think the writer missed the mark. The show left me flat. It seemed disjointed without a comfortable flow. And why did Zach get carried around the stage doing the bicycle and swimming? Worse was the disco dancers during the battle simulation scene. How incongruous. Not the actors fault, it’s all on the writers. Very disappointed.

2.0 star rating Kathy Brown from Sacrament, California


This is the only performance my husband and I have ever left at intermission. I’ve been attending musicals most of my life and I found this one to be boring and some of the voices were lacking.

2.0 star rating Jeri B from Sacramento, California


The music is fun and nostalgic. The acting was fine, the singing was just mediocre. The young woman playing Seeger had a fabulous voice. They story line was changed and I wish they would have just left it as it was in it's original form.

2.0 star rating Maria from Binghamton, New York


The storyline was disappointing and diverted from the movie. Some of the singers had very good voices but the show was overly loud … almost painful at times. Some of the scenes were very disjointed and did not flow….. some of the choreography was just bizarre. There was really only one very good number with very good dancing choreography. This was not a good show.

2.0 star rating Charlotte Carr from Wichita, Kansas


The singing voices were hard to hear over the instruments; the actors talked too fast for me. It was not the quality I’ve come to expect from Broadway in Wichita, especially after the fabulous Fiddler on the Roof. Would not recommend.

2.0 star rating Maria from Birmingham, Alabama


Pitchy voices — a good musical coach and/or musical director would have been a blessing. Other than Paula’s mother, the female officer in training, Trey and a couple other minor roles, the voices were strained, off key and non-harmonious. The facial expressions were very sincere but the voices were so flat and off key at times that it was painful. Dancing was good except for the 80’s go-go dancers during the buttercup battle. That was ridiculous, distracting and irrelevant. Sets were very nice as were the transitions. But it was so difficult to overlook the lackluster acting and the strained voices and woke storyline. Why change the story? I hope they hire a musical director to get the voices and music on track. We loved Rain, waitress, fiddler on the roof and even Simon and Garfunkel. This one was disappointing. Just needs better direction and coaching. It was creative and sets were phenomenal.
