How was your experience?
Same impression as the other writers regarding the venue, but worse because the two viewing screens at the side of the stage were not operating during this performance. I'm giving this three stars only because the performers were very good, from what little I could see of them; I spent most of the first act staring at the back of the head of the person in front of me. It was also very annoying that a number of people were getting up during the first act to scout out better seats, then coming back to get their companions who caused further disruptions when they got up. I don't blame them, though. I would recommend seeing a performance at the Grove only if you can get front row seats or are over seven feet tall.
