The play is a little thin, but very enjoyable. It is a bit simplistic on the political side.

Seats were in Row H, but way on the side.
Play was captivating. Their command of the French language was so natural sounding. We parked in Water Tower for $11 with the theater validation.

The Julia character and other supporting cast were good, however Paul did not seem to fit. The play seemed to become unfocused when so much time was devoted to the woman who was being interrogated.

As usual, tickets through Goldstar were great! I wanted more focus on Julia's love affair with food - more nitty gritty on what she was learning- and maybe more about her... continued
