How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Amazing first act! The lead actor was dangerously charismatic and the compelling story, creative staging, live Afrobeat music and glorious dancing kept me riveted. Sadly, I got lost in the second act. The story jumped back in time, making it hard to follow. Projected dates over the stage would have been useful. I found myself yawning through the underworld journey, which dragged on far too long. The story of Sandra's character was left unresolved. Still, I'm glad I experienced this juggernaut of a show.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
Theater grew uncomfortably warm in the 2nd act, especially in the mezzanine. Dress accordingly.
Info
The Pinot Grill was offers a quick albeit unmemorable bite in a romantic setting.
