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.

Description

In_ The Circle, _what goes around comes around . . . just in time for cocktail hour. A forerunner to The Constant Wife—_which was a hit with critics and audiences in 2002—The Circle _set the standard for W. Somerset Maugham’s winning brand of social satire. _The Circle _begins thirty years after the fresh-faced and vivacious Lady Kitty left her politician husband for a scandalous life with his best friend. Still vivacious (but not quite as fresh-faced), the exiled lovers flounce back into town just as history is preparing to repeat itself by wreaking havoc on the marriage of Kitty’s grown son, Arnold. Will practicality beat out passion this time around? Will Arnold’s straying spouse be influenced by her elders’ impetuous example? And will anyone be able to tolerate another game of bridge with the insufferable Lord Porteous?
