Ted Neeley had moments of brilliance, and it was great to see someone whom I have loved in this role. The rest of the cast was pretty good, the production was a little on the cheap side, as was the music. The singers talked through some parts...continued

This is the worse show that I ever had attended in my life. Some songs/music from Andrew Lloyd Webber were good, but, they are not what I thought. The stage setup and design was awful and cheap. I was disappointed all together.

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
