Worst audio if any production I have ever heard. You couldn't hear any of the dialogue in the whole movie. Was it this theatre only? Totally disappointing.

NYC live production was better. Why all the close ups? That is not what broadway is about? The cheesy audience shots clapping were unnecessary and removed story focus. I feel those that didn’t see it live were not given a true shot at loving it, and it should be loved!

Good show filmed well but sound in theatre was way too low. Should have raised house lights at interval. But still very enjoyable.

Sound was so faint that you could not hear the actors speaking. Musical numbers were louder.

Disappointing start as Livonia AMC 20 in Michigan didn’t start projecting it until 20 minutes into simulcast. Audience members had to tell management it had not been started. Once started, the audio was minimal and could not be heard in theater. We had to yell to turn it up the volume. Great show but very disappointing execution at this theater!

FANTASTIC filming of this amazing musical! Red Rock Regal Cinemas in Las Vegas did a wonderful job bringing it to us! I WANT MORE SHOWINGS so I can see it again!!!

I love this show. Heartwarming. Uplifting. I've seen it live and love that more, but this was still smile-inducing. Sound was soft in the theatre though :(

Only sad about the sound. It was muffled and that was disappointing, otherwise it was great to see since it had closed just a week before I was in NYC this spring.

Loved the piece but cut the audience shots. I want to see the performers, not the audience. The volume in the theatre was too low. The lights should have come up during intermission. The theatre should clean the floors - shoes stick to them.

I thought the American Broadway version was better. English accents hard to understand.

Saw the musical on Broadway. Enjoyed having a chance to see such an uplifting, feel good musical again as a movie. Also delighted in the opportunity seeing a London version too.

Great show, but it’s a shame that the sound was so flat and muddy. It made some of the dialog hard to understand.

Saw this production on Broadway and loved it!! I got all the same feels while watch this London production. I did enjoy the closeups as that is missed when in a theater (especially with balcony seats). However, Showcase Cinemas in Millbury MA needs to upgrade their sound system in theater 4. I could hear the air conditioning more than the dialogue!! I listen to the soundtrack louder in my car! This music is fantastic and should not be ruined by faulty sound. This needs to be released on Netflix so I can enjoy it at home with surround sound!! 😀

The show was absolutely wonderful. So a great message, music and so uplifting. The down side was the audio. The sound was too low and it really took a lot away from the show. I heard others complain of the same thing so I know it wasn't only me.

The show was excellent. The actual theatre was another issue entirely. It was hot in the theatre, the sounds was awful until about 25 minutes in and the whole show was 20 minutes late getting started.

allows the audience to be as close as possible to the actors. I have seen the live show twice and this film allowed me to see some of the suttle bits that are missed from the house. Most importantly Shoes!

This is a great way to see a show when you cant get to a live theater performance. Obviously it's not like seeing it live, but still very incredible. I think the audience shots were unnecessary. They take you out of the moment and just point out that we are not seeing it live. I hope Fathom does more theatre like this!

The cast was amazing, like others said I have no idea if it was the theater that I watched it in but the volume was so low I was afraid to laugh because I might miss what was being said. also this is a musical and I want to feel immersed and what I'm watching and it's hard when speakers aren't working or the volume is down. 20 bucks to see this btw! I even informed two workers and nothing was done about it so I'm not sure if it was the recording or the theater.

I enjoy theater; I remember the commercials for this musical and I was always curious about the show. I was surprised by Lola but enjoyed the show nonetheless. And I wish I could have see it live.

The music! The lyrics! The CHOREOGRAPHY is phenomenal! The ENERGY of this performance is amazing! The cinematography of the performance is fantastic -- with close-ups and cameo shots, (almost) better than being in the Adelphi Theater in London.

London cast was great. Audio and videography were balanced and produced well. Great opportunity for my family to see shows they wouldn’t be able to travel to NYC or London to enjoy.

As everyone else has mentioned, sound was terrible. I wasn’t a fan of some of the singers, but the message was the best part. The movie was slow when I saw it, so tamping that up took some guts. I recommend it even with the flaws.

These 'filmed live onstage' shows are a wonderful way to see Broadway musicals in their original form. Kinky Boots is a great show, and this production is worth a look. I loved it,but either the film or the theater missed the boat on sound. The volume is too low and nearly any stereo sound is missing. A shame, because everything else was spot on.

It was a fabulous show despite the sound issues at the theatre we saw it at. First 5 minutes had no sound and the house lights were still on, but after they fixed that it was so good. My daughter loved it.

It was good especially the ending but I felt more connected to the play. The performance from Lola was very moving. A bunch of kids interfered with the movie at times so many in the audience were miffed.
