How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We did not realize this was an amateur production. It's one of my favorite shows and it was great to hear the music again, but most of the actors/singers were not very talented. I have never seen a show where there is no musical conductor conducting the vocals. The woman who sang "Another Hundred People" - admittedly a very difficult song - was singing faster than the orchestra throughout. They never got in synch once. The woman who played Amy was terrific in her wedding scene. She was the highlight of the show. I was so looking forward to Joanne's big number in the second act but we left at intermission.
