You're wasting your money to sit in the balcony at this theater. The rack of lights attached to the front of the balcony blocks the view of those in the front row, so they lean forward at the edge of their seats to see action at the front of the stage. The balcony is VERY steeply raked, so when they lean forward, a ripple effect occurs where the people in the second row also lean forward to try to see around the heads of the people in the front row who are now blocking their view, and so on and so on. If those in the front row are inconsiderate jerks, they stay leaned forward through the entire show, and no one behind them can see. Absolute sightline FAIL. The lighting rig needs to be redesigned!!! The owners of this theater don't give a crap about screwing over balcony patrons. I politely asked the usher to ask the people in the front row to sit back, and he point-blank refused to do so.

I was 2nd row, off to the side, but still a great seat.

The acting, especially by Jerry, was superb, although I wasn't really sure what the theme of the play was. The characters were well developed, and very believable, and the pace was fast enough to keep my interest.

This is a wonderful staging of related early and late career plays by Albee who is always challenging and provocative. The new play shows how refined a dramatist he has become, with evocative uses of silence and below the surface meanings to...continued

Description

An unforgettable pairing of Albee’s original The Zoo Story with a freshly penned prequel, Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo (formerly titled Peter and Jerry) bares its teeth to threaten the delicately balanced world its characters inhabit.
