The weather was wonderful. I wore Up scale casual clothes one step below After-5. LA for the most part is non- judgmental of dress. However I think it shows respect for your date when you show pride in appearance..

It was a workshop, and the story needs to be tightened to flow better in places, but this is gonna be a great show. The music is really engaging, and the narrator/jester was simply awesome. I can't wait to see how it develops and want to go back...continued

This was as good as any theater I've seen this year. The singers were amazing and so was the music. Every word was understandable. A truly creeative musical! I want to see it again when it's ready for regular theatergoers.

They did mention that this musical was still in the works. I gave it a chance. Its a good start. But I left during intermission. Still needs work.
