Get to the theater early so you can enjoy the live music before the show and have a drink on the stage with the musicians.

If you buy a beer/wine on stage then you don't get souvenir cup! They wouldn't exchange it at other bar either...

Quotes & Highlights

Once uses song and dance in a way I’ve never experienced in an American musical.
