The theater was very nice. There were 3 sections: middle, left, & right. 1st come 1st serve on seating. The show was about 2.5 hours long. I didn't see the film before hand so didnt' know what to expect. It was kind of hard to understand the old English w/ Brit accent so lyrics were displayed on the left side of the wall. i had to constantly read the lyrics off the wall in order to comprehend what was being said so it was hard to pay attn to the stage. It would have been nice if there were some way to project the lyrics in the middle too but i guess that would be difficult. Coffee & tea & Asian snacks available before & during the intermission.
Music Director Joseph Haletky, a founder of the Savoyards who has directed and performed with many Bay Area choruses and theater ensembles, as well as world-renowned symphonic choruses, brings 40 years of musical experience to this almost, but not quite, traditional production. The Titipu Community Orchestra is comprised of over 20 Bay Area professional and amateur musicians.
Shows run 2 ½ hours in length and include a 10-minute intermission with a snack and beverage concession.
Projected supertitles of the lyrics accompany all performances.
