  • Fantastic Performance. Beautiful, intimate venue. Make sure you show up early and get seats up front. It’s worth it.
  • Was a beautiful experience full of wonder and helped me reminisce of my childhood. Beautifully lit and quartet was amazing.
  • Amazing musicians and beautiful ambiance
  • It was certainly a unique experience. The staff was courteous and professional. The performers did an excellent job. The setting was very unique. Although it was a tad bit of a let down since it wasnt real candles. But I understand why real candles couldn’t be used.
  • Got engaged so I’d say it was a good night.
  • It was a very enjoyable show! The event description is a little misleading when considering the “multi-sensory” experienced promised. If some visual aspect was incorporated into the show(like clips from the movies) it would’ve definitely earned that 5th star
  • Wonderful experience!
  • Great performance!
  • It’s good
  • Amazing
