I ENJOYED IT

I can honestly say I don't understand all the 1 star reviews. It may not have wowed me like some shows I've seen, but I really enjoyed myself. The performances were good and I thought a lot of it was very touching. So maybe people felt it was too "real" but that's something I appreciated about it. Life and love are messy and beautiful at the same time. That came through for me.

GREAT SHOW GREAT MESSAGE GREAT STAGING. AMAZING ACTING

I can’t say this was a perfect show but it was great. It had a great message still relative today.

UNBELIEVABLY BAD AND BORING

Barely made it through the 1st act. We attend theater regularly, and Falsettos may have been the worst ever for us. Many others joined us in leaving. Shame on SHN for subjecting subscribers to such drivel.

FALSETTOS

As a season ticket holder for more than a decade, I was extremely bored by this musical. The actors were great, the material they had to work with was disappointing and I found myself waiting for something good to happen but it wasn't in the script. Many left during the first half, we waited for intermission to leave as many others did as well. I would not recommend this play to anyone.

SHOULD HAVE READ REVIEWS BEFOREHAND

Just left the show at intermission. I’m really surprised that this show would tour. Actors were good, but show (music and staging) Is so dated. Perhaps when it came out originally the story of a gay man leaving his wife would have been shockingly interesting, but it didn't hold our interest. There were no songs that were hooks. I am a season ticket holder with SHN and had made the assumption that all shows are good (rest of the season excellent). Would have been better off enjoying the beautiful spring day today and giving up the tickets.

SO, SO BAD

Disjointed, boring, contrived - a complete waste of time. We left at intermission, along with more than half the audience. We could not believe this was a "revival." As my husband said, "they should have let this one die the first time around."

1.0 star rating Trask from San Francisco, California

WHY SHOULD WE CARE?

Utterly disappointed in this unnecessary revival. I wanted to enjoy it, but I couldn’t care less for any of the adult characters. They were all too introspective and selfish. I agree with the reviewer who commented that perhaps 20 years ago the subject matter was fresh and vital. But, come on, don’t we all now have caring lesbian neighbors? (If not, you should!) Don’t we all know someone who died a tragic death, and we stood beside that person through the worst of it? The show provides nothing revealing regarding such experiences. Maybe if I could recall any of the songs it might help with the depression of recalling my wasted afternoon at the Golden Gate Theatre. But alas, as James Lapine’s sometime collaborator wrote, “There’s not a tune you can hum.”
