LIVE FOR BROADWAY! This show was amazing. Muscles everywhere! The Drill Sgt.s voice is commanding and powerful! Only way this little show gets to Broadway is that deep resonating talented Drill Sgt.

This is the only performance my husband and I have ever left at intermission. I’ve been attending musicals most of my life and I found this one to be boring and some of the voices were lacking.

The music is fun and nostalgic. The acting was fine, the singing was just mediocre. The young woman playing Seeger had a fabulous voice. They story line was changed and I wish they would have just left it as it was in it's original form.

AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN
I saw the original version of this musical in Sydney Australia in 2012. Why they nixed that version in favor of this one, I have no idea? The songs in the original were fantastic as were the acting and direction. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

Why would you change a classic to fit today’s narrative. I was thoroughly disappointed as was my husband. He watched the original classic to prepare and we left after 35 minutes of nothing even similar to the original version. If I heard “prejudice “ one more time! Dear Lord why can’t we just enjoy a classic version of a movie that was so enjoyable. Never again. And to top it off, you couldn’t have food or beverages in theater. But, you could drink in another part of theater until showtime. Only problem was people were lined up 5 minutes before showtime ordering without knowing they couldn’t leave the area with their overpriced beverages. Disappointed and disgusted.

YOU SHOULD PASS ON THIS SHOW
I saw the show in Jackson, MS on 12-20-2021. The show was not good. They need a vocal coach. Most of the actors can sing, but they could not harmonize together. As they got louder their voices got worse. I would add that the music a random effort to fit the story line and does a poor job. I was willing to overlook the change in the story line to focus on social justice, but it is a bad story, with out of place songs, sung by sub par actors. And I should add that reading the playbill, for most of the actors this was their national debut.

ATHLETIC DANCING, OTHERWISE "MEH"
I have never in my long life every left a Broadway type musical at intermission. I did for this one. An Officer and a Gentleman making its road show stop in NW Arkansas this past week was a disappointment. The athletic choreography when the men were in their peak military performance was very good. But the blocking otherwise during less active moments and during singing especially was actually stiff, slow and stilted. Near the end of Act I I heard the famous duet "Up Where We Belong" and did not feel lifted. No need to hang around for the reprise in Act II. If this run is making a stop near your, I'd skip it.
