How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I enjoyed this production very much - loved the portrayal of the ancient story of Scheherezade and her 1001 tales of love, seduction, betrayal and wisdom. The ending brought tears to my eyes as it evoked the mortality and vulnerability of the "Badhdad, city of peace and poets" in which we had just spent a pleasant time. A couple of the scenes are belabored.... would like to see them take 5-10 minutes off the production.
