Intermission, where ARE you? I'm dying! All five in my party immediately jumped up and put on our coats when Act I was finally over. It's like the movie, only with bad acting and lots of dialogue converted into terrible singing. The lead guy is no Jack Black, though he tries, at times. The kids are smart alecs, and the the whole thing feels kind of mean and tone deaf for 2018. Plus, that theatre was burning up hot, and I could not see around the lady in front of me, though I am sure I am taller than her. Sure wish I still had the money and time I wasted on this sadomasochistic activity. I must have done something really bad at some point to deserve this punishment.

The play started a little slow for me but it picked up and ended up being fantastic. Kids were very talented. Great music, humor, and very entertaining I recommend it for all ages

The show was amazing, the children are so talented. The entire cast did a great job. So happy it came to Boston!!

We left this play feeling energized and the kids and the principal in the play were great but I could have done without the following: gay stereotypes, nagging girlfriend stereotype, some of the language used such as douche bag and slut (the audience is young) and what seemed to be a pedophile joke. We’re it not for these things, I would have given the play 4 stars.

1.0 star rating from Cleveland, Ohio


We were tempted to leave after the first act, so disappointing after our family loved the movie. The first act is flat and boring with more gay innuendoes than plot or character development. Second act was slightly better. I had hoped for a family show. The choreography was kids jumping up and down for two hours. Their musical talent was the best part of the show along with the principal. Bottom line- not with the time or money.

2.0 star rating Rochelle Rohlfs from Omaha, Nebraska


After not being able to understand what the lead guy was saying or singing for the first 30 min., I wanted to leave. I had purchased two additional tickets for someone who had never been to the Orpheum and I was embarrassed. Yes, talented kids, but beyond that a waste of time and money.
