How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Fair disclosure: I went to a preview performance. But it was only two days before opening, so it can't have changed that much before it was officially "open." I thought the actors, especially the lead playing Houdini, were all talented and certainly gave it their all. But the story dragged horribly, some of the conceits were a bit overdone and some were just ridiculous. I could not recommend this to anyone until they trim about 30 minutes off of it (maybe first 20 minutes of the second act could be cut out entirely?) and make it a showman piece that Houdini would have been proud of.

Help others enjoy a great night out
