Saturday Matinee, lots of traffic; coming from los altos took me exactly 1 hour, but I drive like a demon. Was going to PARK @ hotel Donatello, read that fee was only $6 - but by 1:30 that lot was full, the one right next to it was $20 flat fee (!!) but I parked there because didn't want any hassle. Take bart if you can, easy walk to ACT theatre.

Dialogue was hard (someltimes impossible) to hear from balcony. Play was not very interesting in any event. Themes (such as they were) seemed outdated.

Maybe it was because both my wife & I were tired, but the play was very slow moving and both of us started to nod off near end of 1st half. So we didn't stay for 2nd. Maybe it was better. The seats were good and we love the old theatre

Balcony seats are really miserable, so uncomfortable and tight and no space for legs. Mezzanine doesn't look a lot better. The play was well done, and acting good. But the play is really far too long, not as witty as I remember from reading it...continued
