The show was fantastic. Great new sound system. Only complaint is the seats are narrow and hard so it was not comfortable to sit for the almost 3 hours!

I've seen a few productions at the emerson umbrella. They are always well put on, but the atmosphere is akin to a high school, which detracts slightly from the quality of the performance.
