  1. This looks amazing but a part of me thinks that this musical was made to get on the Beautiful: The Carole King Musical bandwagon. I hope not.

  2. Just what we need; another jukebox musical. Also this looks identical to both Motown and Beautiful in terms of sets, lighting, production, etc.

  3. Alguien puede decirme en que ciudad se puede ver este musical? Can anyone tell me in which city can I see this musical

  4. It got the worst reviews ! But For those kids sake I hope the show survives but Donna should have had a better treatment Amazing voice and music

  5. I saw the show. Lachanze is wonderful as also as were Ariana and Storm. The music is great…….The show…….well that's all the time I have for reviews………

  6. Great singer, but Donna Summer had the most effortlessly beautiful and POWERFUL voice I've ever heard. No one can compare. I'm not knocking the singer in this clip. She's very talented. I'm praising Donna Summer's one of a kind voice.

  7. Great! Another "Pop-sical" — Yay!!!!! When will Broadway have The Osmond Musical? Or The Carpenters Musical? Or The Partridge Family Musical? I remember when lyricists and composers used to be imaginative and original. Audiences came to the theatre not knowing a single song and in the course of a Broadway season HITS were born and Classics where produced. What is going to be the next Disney brand musical? 101 Dalmations? Tangled? UP? — Check your brain at the door because you don't really have to think anymore. Spoon feed the masses.

  8. Based on this clip I would not go see this show. It sounds horrible. However, I already saw it and loved it. This music here is even at a slower tempo. At the theater the music was booming like it should be. At the dancing tempo it should have. The voices were phenomenal. This clip is bad.

  9. I expected the singing to be bad, but God damn!! Somebody needs to run these hoes out of town! The first round of American Idol has better singers.

  10. Here's an interesting take on the show's erasure of gay men, no doubt meant to sanitize the production for Middle America and to hew to DS's late-in-life reversion to homophobia: https://www.poz.com/blog/donna-summer-musical-makes-angry

  11. I'm a big Donna Summer fan since I was a kid watching this clip I think she's turning over in her grave

  12. I loved Donna Summer, but this has to be the worst idea for a musical in a long time. Rodgers & Hammerstein and Lerner and Lowe are turning in their graves.

  13. I hope it was just the audio on my headphones but it sounds and looks cheap. It’s like 3 girls out on a Friday night feeling themselves.

  14. This clip is very deceiving, saw the show, can’t get over it 2 days later. Don’t let this clip make you think “ugh, that’s terrible” cause it isn’t!

  15. Donna Summer was not about FURS ….it was about the MUSIC….it was about the fashion…IT WAS ABOUT DONNA SUMMER..One Of A KIND

  16. The singer did absolutely no justice to Last Dance. If you watch any Donna Summer performance on YouTube, even her weakest is better than this.

  17. COME ON GUYS THALIA AS A PRODUCER? THIS IS JUNK. HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR OUR DISCO QUEEN SONNA SUMMER. SHE DESERVES BETTER THAN THIS. THIS SUCKS.!!

  18. Music sounds awful!!! I can program better-quality music with my computer in less than an hour.. No recorded strings?? Just keyboard "strings"?? So disrespectful. CHEAP!

  19. Kelly Rowland should have been there instead of this woman. She has nothing to do with Donna Summer, her voice is horrible, wow… so disappointing…

  20. I love Donna summer but…
    This sounds like beauty pageant contestant singing!
    No one sings like Donna summer -very disappointing

  21. I saw this live last week and it was incredible. The singing, dancing and energy was outstanding. However, this clip they put together is horrible !!! This will not attract audiences to this wonderful musical

  22. No, no, no…only one singer had anything close to the vocal chops to pull off these songs…please recast the lighter skinned vocalists…they are all wrong…sloppy…sloppy …sloppy

  23. Well, I didn't think I was going to like this musical. BUT I just got back last night from NYC and the highlight of my trip was Donna The Musical! WOW…Such talent. These women who play Donna at different stages of her life were amazing! Great singers all of them. No, they did not sound exactly like THE Donna, but the story, the dancing, the love .. was all there. The crowd was on it's feet several times during the show. Open you minds and for Heavens sake, please go see this musical before you put it down..

  24. This does not do it justice. I saw the show and it was incredible. The actresses don’t sing exactly like Donna, but there amazing in their own right.

  25. Is this just a concert covering Donna's songs or is there an actual musical play / story, incorporating the songs? If it is just a concert, I can see this on a cruise ship. Please tell me I'm getting more for the $$$$$ they are charging.

  26. Most reviews were bad but i was determined to see it. I often love what critics hate. I must say I was extremely entertained from beginning to end. All three of the Donnas blew me away. I've always loved LaChanze (the more mature Donna) Great scenic design, acting and vocals. You simple can't just sit still in your seat. This is a must for Donna fans. Hope it has a decent run.

  27. Having grown up in the Disco era and loving Donna know way could anyone do her justice
    After listening to this clip confirms I was right. You can't put a wig on it.

  28. I have seen the show five times. if you loved talent…and Donna's music you won't go away disapointed! La Chanze, Storm and ARIANA are just wonderful

  29. Who approve this mess I can't believe one of the world's greatest icons is being portrayed in this poor fashion who even cast these people who's in charge of even writing the script that's all I want to know. And does her family know about this did they approve it??? Another Broadway mess

  30. strorm lever is still there and the older donna summer is still there but the the oldest donna sumer has been changed and im glad for that i was in the 3th row 🙂

  31. I WOULD SUE THE DAMNED HELL OF THESE OPRUNICOONS! IF Is MY LAST BOTTOM DOLLAR ON SOMETHING THST FART CRUD! YES YOURE RIGHT, SHE DOESN'T APPRECIATE THIS WACK PIECE OF TRASH! SHE'S A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN! WHERE IS KELLY ROLAND?????????????????????????

  32. I went to see it Friday I promise it was worth it this trailer didn't do it justice.When I say then whole audience was dancing the whole time I mean that my 10 year old girls loved it also

  33. What A mess. They sound awful, DS had a POWERFUL voice that would blow all these "vocalists" back to Kansas. This should have never happened. The wardrobe clothes look like they are from the Goodwill bin. Three women to play the part?? One woman could not do the whole "play" singing DS songs, because they are incapable. Went with an open mind when it opened, but left before it was over. A complete travesty.
