The sound system in the theater was very poor. If you were seated in the balcony, which is where the Goldstar seats were, it was very hard to hear the comedians.

Joan was fabulous! Energetic beyond her years, and hysterically funny, she is a force of Nature and a treasure! The comic who opened for her was terrific as well....and our seats were terrific! Well done, Goldstar!
