I was so impressed that the cast remained for an extended period and allowed the children to have their pictures taken with the Stars! I wished I had a "little person" who could enjoy the fun.

They had many sound mishaps the night I went. The Godmother's microphone, for example, was out the entire time she was on stage talking and singing. The orchestra's horn section was either out of tune, or just plain didn't know the correct notes...continued

I'm just glad I didn't pay full price, because if I paid $40/tickets I would have left.
