How was your experience?
This is my first negative review, but we had to leave at intermission....we just could not sit and listen to the high pitched attempts at British accents and mannerisms. It was so distracting and annoying that the story was lost. I watched others react to the titter/laugh offered frequently by the gardener after every little delivery of lines. There were grimaces other than mine. I hope this production is just suffering from early day wrinkles needing to be ironed out. It has such potential. The seating was a mixed bag. It is nice to have the table there so you can enjoy a drink during the performance, but in order to see the production, the two people at each table who had their backs to the stage, had to move their chairs and snug in close to adjoining tables in order to see. I had to constantly change my position in order to see past the people in the chairs between me and the stage. Again, this is the first negative review I have given, but I felt my money on these tickets was misspent.
