This event will be one of the one's I'll remember for a life time! Needless to say, Dr. Angelou was awesome and the opportunity was priceless. I had great seats, but unfortunately the will-call line was so long that I missed half of the show...continued

Dr. Angelou was great. I heard some things I knew about her as well as some things I didn't know. She is living proof that we are not our circumstances. The fact that the phenomenal Dr. Angelou is so humble should cause people of younger...continued

Dr. Maya Angelou is very inspirational, and listening to her was an amazing honor. The show, however, was only about an hour long, including an opening singer.

This was an amazing event. Hearing Dr. Angelou speak was a dream come true. My only complaint was the program seemed very short. It started a few minutes late, then the wonderful opening act sang for about 15-20 minutes. By the time Dr. Angelou...continued

I expected it to be longer. I was so enthralled by her words, that when the curtains closed I just knew it was intermission and that she would come back out on stage. While waiting in the Will Call line, an employee of Warner theatre informed us...continued

Ms. Angelou is absolutely amazing. After reading all 6 of her autobiographies over this past summer, it was such a treat to sit in her presence and hear her live, as she told bits and pieces of her life. She left me with such an impression in my...continued

This event was historical. I will never forget it nor the loving, beautiful, peaceful, and magical ambiance that surrounds this living legend. She came, she conquered, and she amazed all in attendance.

She is a living legend and I was so...continued

While she is a phenomenal woman and talented speaker, the event was an exorbitant amount of money (even with the Goldstar discount) for only hearing her speak for 40 minutes.

The program was short, about one hour. I had to wait in a long will call line to pick up my Goldstar tickets. Due to this I missed about 15 minutes of the show.

I wanted my 10 yr old to have the opportunity to hear the tales and philosophical musings of such a distinguished woman. There was actually a school program scheduled for the same evening. My child opted to take this rare opportunity instead. ...continued

Dr. Angelou's spirit touched me. Her words were pointed and purposeful as always.

On the downside, the theater patrons were allowed to come in late and disturb the rest of us that arrived on time. If that wasn't bad enough, the late people...continued
