The Black Reperatory Group apparently forgot that they had a scheduled performance of "The Wiz" beginning at 5pm. So, when we arrived at 6:30, we were told that there was going to be a delay starting the program, as "The Wiz" was still playing. (As it had already been there for a couple of weeks, you would have thought the theater manager would not have scheduled a show which overlapped with that one!)
The lobby was extremely hot, and all the seats were taken, so we stood and waited for an hour until "The Wiz" let out, and, finally, at 7:30 we were allowed in the theater to sit down.
About 40 minutes later at 8:10pm, the manager, Sean, came to the stage and apologized for the delay. He told us all about his family and the history of the theater, and he said that the show would start very soon, as they were getting the equipment ready.
At about 8:20, the show began, and we were graced with the most horrendous sound we have ever heard. There was a computer generated bass drum, which was much too loud, the mics did not work properly, and, as a result, the musicians sounded awful.
We had to leave at 8:30, as we told friends we would meet them 8:45 (we thought the show would be over at 8:15, based on the information from Goldstar). As we left, the trumpet player was standing outside, and he told us that they had been there for hours, that they were extremely angry, and that they were not able to do a sound check before playing because of "The Wiz."
This was the worst experience we have ever had at a theater in the Bay Area!
The performance lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes.
