How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I think this play is very good, but it's important not to narrow your expectation to the movie. Felix is slightly overweight which is something you wouldn't expect from a character that is known for perfection. What he lacks in physical similarity, he makes up for it in overall performance. His voice is a dead ringer for Jack Lemmon. I was also disappointed that they would actually light two cigars during the show. I don't think it added anything to the performance and the second cigar started me coughing. I wonder if they would have reimbursed me for the cost of the ticket if I would have had to leave. Overall it's a great production and worth seeing. The actors and actress have great timing and give memorable performances.
