ROMAN HOLIDAY

The cast of this show was fresh, enthusiastic, and completely suited to their roles. I am a huge fan of the original film as well as Cole Porter and I was utterly dazzled. The actors made the characters their own while seamlessly paying tribute to Audrey and Mr. Peck. Stephanie Styles was a dream as Princess Ann and had me in stiches as well as in tears. I would definitely recommend this show. I will definitely be following this show on the rest of its journey to The Great White Way.

ROMAN HOLIDAY

Being a season ticket holder, I went to this play. It was part of the package and after reading the reviews I really was not looking forward to going. But to my pleasant surprise, I did enjoy it. I have seen better productions over the years but this play was not as bad as some other plays I have seen. It was nice to see a production where the cast danced well, had high energy, and a simple story line. Not everything need to be complicated. It was entertaining.

OKAY NOT GREAT -- GRADE C OR PASSING!

Musical fell flat on me. The princess and some other actors occasionally mis-used the microphone and really screamed into it. Princess didn't thrill me -- not natural when speaking her lines and sometimes shouts. Scenery was great and music good except when actors and actresses screamed into the microphones. The musical and cast both need more work and coaching. Georgia Engels was great -- knows how to work the stage and use the microphone.

NO ZERO STAR OPTION?

Unwatchable. And like a previous review, I debated about leaving during intermission. Re-purposed Cole Porter songs felt like an afterthought; never once do they further the plot. Instead, they are familiar but forgettable interludes inserted to flesh out a rather basic premise. This whole play feels dated and not in a nostalgic, feel-good way. Also the sets, which broke down twice during the performance, are more complicated than required. I am no snob by any means, and the SHN season has been fantastic this year, but this cannot go to Broadway in this form. Georgia Engel is a marvel, but even she can't save this turkey. Save your $$$!

IT DOESN'T WORK

The sweet young cast gave it a decent try, but the thing simply doesn't work. Dated stale jokes; forced musical numbers; simpering formulaic plot; and a Disney-esque color scheme to the entire set make this musical a must-miss. Additionally, the singers have voices that sound like modern Broadway (think "Frozen"), totally unconvincing in a 1950s theme, The orchestra played each Cole Porter song at the same intensity, without nuance or variation of volume, and the singing was the same way. I suppose a 10 year old would enjoy this silly candy tale, at most.

THIS IS NO HOLIDAY

I would have given this 0 stars, but you don't offer this option.

POOR, POOR ROME : IT'S NO HOLIDAY

Buy an airline ticket if you want to see Rome, because this poorly concived show is really NO HOLIDAY...So much has developed in the American musical theater in the last ten [or more] years that this dated show seems out of date [even as a musical from the 50's when the movie came out]. It's hard to believe that theater professionals in 2017 would try to produce such a dated show. Perhaps their looking for a tax loss. It shows a certain lack of awairness of local theater goers that this was produced for a San Francisco theatergoer....

What we thought

Essential MOVING powerful

Leopoldstadt is not your normal Stoppard, it's his most accessible, masterful and deeply moving.

Weaving together five decades in the history of a Jewish family in Vienna, Tom Stoppard's latest and most personal work takes us on a heartbreaking journey.
