This show was awesome and the music was phenomenal! It was very engaging and moved you to sing and dance throughout the performance. It was amazing to learn how much the pains of life and the political events inspired the creation and writings of music that became great hits. I loved this show. I would go see it again if comes back.

Smokey, Diana highlight a stellar cast. Lively dancing and music that has you dancing in your seats. A must see.

Saw the traveling show in Spokane. Musical performances were outstanding. But I grew very, very weary of all the Caucasian bashing throughout the show. Yeah, we get it. White people in power were jerks back then. But I'm confident they were also jerks to other white musical artists, as well. A retrospect on one of the great eras of pop music was spoiled by a message we are all too familiar with, and being force fed a history lesson is not something I want in a Broadway musical...

The music was good but not enough. To much dialogue. I though a group from Black lives matter would be in the last scene as well as Kapernick.

It was all I expected and more. Bette wowed the crowd with just her smile!! I wanted to hide under my seat so I could watch it again at the 8 pm performance. No regrets as it was simply fabulous
