How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was the second time Ive seen this performance, my family's first. My son loved peeking into the orchestra pit at Intermission and overall, he laughed whole heartedly throughout! Brilliant move to have the lead's transformation from male into female as a mini video on front page of the Cal Theater web site! My son watched it multiple times - -then said, "hey Momma, that's the guy who is the mother - -cool!" This is not a lesson in teaching tolerance- its a 7 yr old boy making an excited realization that, "its totally normal to have the male lead in a dress!" [Only down side] We drove 1.5 hours from the peninsula in pouring rain to the performance! The maid on point was also funny & priceless; I'd see this again + again with my HS students to reinforce its wonderful, not just normal, to see men in tutus! We [heart] Mark Morris - please keep coming back.
