How was your experience?
The show was great (4 star) for kids and good (3 star) for adults. It was long for the youngest kids - it ran from 7:30pm to 10:10pm. The costumes are good, but the feather duster and the dresser were difficult to guess who they were with out knowing the story (IE: grandpa missed it entirely). All the lead characters were good and each had standout moments, but the show does not provide the wow factor that the defying Gravity song provides in Wicked. The group numbers are great and the second act is the strongest of the two. Our seats were assigned by the theater and they were on the far stage left; on the isle. The National Theater seating arrangement made it hard to see the show from that angle. Most of the issue was caused by the slant of the floor and the level of the stage. I watched the back of the ladies head in front of me bob back and forth for the first act. She moved to empty seats for the second act and I found that the heads of people two rows down still blocked a very small portion of the stage.
