"Grand Experience"
January, 2015
Each year as the Christmas Holidays approach, my wife and I look forward to starting our celebration with this show. We have never been disappointed! At one time, we tried others in the area but could not find one to compare. The production, talent, and costumes are the best. We find ourselves seeing this one every year, often more than once.
Tip: Be prepared for the unexpected. It is delightful and entertaining.

"Time and again"
January, 2015
In this day of competing mediums, it is great to have the shared experience, one that the whole family can enjoy, that does not involve looking at a phone, TV, or computer. Year after year my family anticipates the attending of this seasonal event, and that includes our youngest grandson, age five, to this sixty three year old grand-dad. This last year, with the recent return of our son from his military tour in Afghanistan, we were not disappointed in the least as he and his kids joined us for this events. All the kids want to go again next year!
Tip: Expect to see quality entertainment, even if you have gone before, and you will not be disappointed.

"Worst attraction that I've ever done."
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 17, 2017 NEW
When i say "worst" i literally mean the worst of the worst. Nothing was funny, (unless you consider transphobic & homophobic remarks funny) it was just a variety show full of never been's that prance around trying to sing covers of songs. Some of the outfits and language were very inappropriate for children as well. It was the most boring thing that I've ever sat through. I was bored out of my mind, i thought that it would never end. I actually strongly considered leaving but stuck it out. I could wait for it to be over. It was painfully boring. Please save yourself some money and never put yourselves through the punishment of seeing this trash they call entertainment. Also, if you're even slightly overweight don't visit. I'm 195 pounds and barely fit in the seats. They're built for children.

"Outstanding performance"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 16, 2017 NEW
Visited with a group of military veterans and their wives. This is a venue that show cases outstanding vocal, musical, and choreografical talents in its production of show tunes, country and pop hits, and some old standards. It is outstanding family entertainment. Oh, and there is a comic that goes by the name Ricky Mokel that will keep you laughing long after you have left the theater. The show warrants a standing ovation and certainly received it the night we attended.

"Rick Alviti Elvis Show"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 16, 2017 NEW
This could have been a much better show. Rick has a good voice and channels Elvis well. However at his show on Feb. 12, 2017 there were 2 big missteps. He spent WAY too much time on audience engagement so that we were looking at our watches and wondering when he would continue the show (which by the way lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes). In the second half of the show his back was to the audience so much of the time as he kept looking at his female singer who was back in one corner of the stage. Very annoying and confusing. We also think that he acted as though he was inebriated and looking to her for cues as to what to do next, or for lyrics. Very odd. A talented man, but this show was not worthy of his talent. His back-up band was very good.

Went here with my wife last year. Wasn't sure what to expect. Very good show with variety of different entertainment. Singing, dancing, comedy, patriotism and more. 2 hours that's worth your time. Give it a shot on a rainy night!!

"Very energetic and talented cast."

We visited the Alabama Theatre and saw the One Show for the first time . We had seats in the 4th row and , actually, I would recommend sitting about 4 or 6 rows further back so you can see less of the detail and more of the overall "magic". The performers are talented and they give a very polished and entertaining show. It was well worth the cost and the time.
