Unique show described as 'human origami' but must be seen to fully appreciate. Excellent selection of musical numbers from all genres get the audience clapping & howling. Last time we got the 'cheaper' Goldstar seats & this time we got the pricier Goldstar seats. In a way, the further (cheaper?) view is as good if not better than the closer but angled view of the action. Though we wished it could be longer, being a one-man show, it is only a bit over an hour long.

My girlfriend & I saw Ennio last year & loved the performance! This year we brought my 15-yr old daughter & she loved the show as well. Ennio is so creative & talented that I wish that more shows per year were added to the Bay Area.
