Seats were better than expected....center, Row R...a little further back than we normally sit at the Carpenter but this was a sold out and last performance of Sunset Blvd. The show was outstanding.

One of the few major ALW musicals I had not previously seen was well executed with a great film noir/Hollywood gothic story
