A GOOD BUT NOT GREAT ESCAPE
Loved hearing some Buffet songs that I hadn’t heard in awhile, or in some cases, snippets of them. Liked how the songs were woven into the plot (or vice versa). Some main character vocals were not up to par. Almost felt like producers felt party vibe and Buffet music would make us overlook the off key notes. At times I felt like I was watching a high school musical with good sets. But having said all that, I still was able to enjoy the show for the music and beach vibe.

LEAD SINGER WAS OFF KEY
All fine except lead singer couldn't hold the tunes

My wife and I are Buffet fans, but this show was not great. Some of the songs were recognizable, some were not. The performers were good, but this was not the first team. It seemed this was a halfhearted attempt to cash in on the success of Mama Mia and Jersey Boys, but it was not in their league. We left at intermission.
Rarely disappointed at the Pioneer! from Reno, Nevada
NOT ENOUGH SUBSTANCE FOR A MUSICAL!
Unless you are as die hard a Buffett fan as you can be....not worth it. the music is not enough to carry this weak plot about being lazy. So disappointed as we have season tickets and the other plays this season have been amazing. Oh well, win some, lose some.
Disappointed from St. Louis, Missouri
I just thought this musical was the worst. The music did not sound like Buffet and you just could not get in the mood. Too high pitched in the singing.

ESCAPE FROM SEEING THIS SHOW
This show was terrible. Stock stereotypical characters. Misogynistic lead was the worst character. Smart female scientist just needs to drink and have sex to relax. Terrible message to send. We left at intermission.

FOR PARROT HEADS ONLY
I was unimpressed by the voices, the plot (??), the choreography, the acting, the staging. Maybe it got better; we left at intermission.
