How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We really enjoyed the show. However my wife had read a review saying how great Mary Bridget Davies was in playing the role of Janis and all the awards we were looking forward to seeing her. We were disappointed to read in the program "Alison Cusano plays the role of Janis Joplin on Saturday matinees and Sunday evenings. Kim Yarbrough plays the role of the Blues Singer on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings." Alison gave a great performance and we don't think the change made a significant impact, but we will always wonder how different Mary's performance might have been. We believe that when a venue has regularly scheduled alternate performers for leading roles, that information should be published on all advertisements that mention the performers' names and that reviewing organizations should review both performers.
