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.

First rate acting in this production. One of the better productions i have seen at ACT. Several of the monlogues were gut-wrenching. Powerful play that brings back the history of this horrid plague. Dramatic but with some ironic comedy every...continued

Wow. What a powerhouse. The intensity I've come to expect from ACT. The set was metaphorically amazing. The play was hard hitting. And the acting was captivating. I not only cried during the last part of the play, I cried all the way down the road...continued
