We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Oliver. The music, cast and sets were excellent. The show is full of many memorable songs. I highly recommend seeing this production in a beautiful theater in a lovely setting.

Will Rogers Follies was a very suitable production for Goodspeed. Purchased the tickets a week before the last show and sat in rear orchestra but had no problem viewing or hearing the show. Wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon.

We have never seen a play here that wasn't great fun. The seat's aren't awfully comfortable, the prices high and the balcony's are a bit scary, but the play is always wonderful and the experience is excellent.
