The venue prices were a bit high even for simple drinks but the show was incredible, the songs really echo throughout the theater and the actors were impeccable!! I definitely loved Persephone and Eurydice!

3.0 star rating Jeff Portner from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Best part of the show is the set, lighting, costumes, band ( especially the trombonist), and choreography. Music is pleasant, nothing memorable. Leads were well cast and all sang well. Show is a bit long, could be 20 minutes shorter and better at that length. The story is thin, which is odd considering the richness of the source material.

3.0 star rating from Louisville, Kentucky


It wasn’t one of my favorites. I wouldn’t see it again . The actors playing the parts especially Persephone didn’t quite work for me and Orpheus high pitch voice was almost cheesy at times. I didn’t leave the theatre like I normally do being wowed. Even if the play it’s self (story line) isn’t my favorite I am still extremely impressed with the actors and production . This was overall ok for me.

3.0 star rating Louanna A ngelo from San Jose, California


Loved the orchestra, music, chorography.. Big drawback did not understand a word spoken by the narrator. He had a high pitched voice that was inaudible. Did not understand the story line because it was so very muffled. Good play otherwise

3.0 star rating RinieB from Calgary, Alberta


Great musical but the music was so loud the actors had to scream their songs to be louder.

2.0 star rating Gary Myers from Greenville, South Carolina


First the start with Hermes showing off his clothes - sorry, not funny. As a matter of fact there is very little humor in this musical. The singing - especially Orpheus, not good. His falsetto was... at times ear tearing. Overall we just didn't feel "involved" - there was little there to bring you in, to CARE ... out of many many musicals seen - probably bottom 10% ranking for both my wife and I.

2.0 star rating Molly from Chicago, Illinois


I don't understand the rave reviews. It was entirely over-produced (but not well-produced). The singing and acting was gimmicky and campy. Eurydice was especially awful (she's original cast). She over-sang everything and has a weird vocal inflection at the end of EVERY verse. No nuance, no depth. The Hermes character was completely superfluous and his singing style was equally as grating on the ears. Just too gimmicky. The whole thing is really trying too hard. There is also the hit-you-over-the-head messaging about environmental and immigration issues. Look, I agree with the message, but with a Broadway musical, I expect more complicated and nuanced themes. Finally, the sound quality was horrible. The female voices were nasally and too loud. You'd think that would be just in Chicago but others mentioned it as a problem in other locations. Must be a production thing. This just did not feel like Broadway, I'm sorry to say. (Except the prices. Those felt like Broadway).
