How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Meh, the play left a lot to be desired. Stage production was...well what stage production? Costumes, er...aside from the supporting cast, what costumes? Couild someone PLEASE tell me why does Radames (the Captain) is wearing an outfit out of Battlestar Galactia??? Without a shirt under his jacket for 90% of the play for that matter. In "My Strongest Suit", Amneris is wearing modern day red-carpet type gowns. Seriously, she could have easily walked down the red-carpet at the Emmy's. BTW, someone needs to clean the fog machine! Much of the play had fog rolling out onto the stage and the mildew smell! Ewww! I don't think Aida was meant for a small stage like the one at Drury Lane. Sorry, but I've been to about 5 Drury Lane productions in the last year alone and this one was so bad that I felt I had to warn other patrons.
