How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I attend the theater in San Francisco at least once per month. This play was the worst I have seen in some time.. The opening scene with the argument consisted of screaming and shouting and profanities that detracted from the quality. And it did not get any better in the following scenes, other than a few moments of humor. The acting was quite good but it's the content that was below expectations. The use of a "turntable" to change sets is not new, but it was very effective. I am glad that the play lasted just about 1 hour and that I was able to get out and go for a walk in the area around Union Square. Disappointed. Expected better from the SF Playhouse. To the staff. There were many empty seats so why were we packed into a small section instead of spread out?
