How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
At the end of the first act - when the play finally starts taking off - we had almost fallen asleep. Mind you, this was 90 minutes into the performance with another 75 minutes to go. We gave up and had Sushi instead... The production is very static, nothing daring, innovative or even remotely exciting about it. This was my third or fourth play at ACT and maybe they are just not for me. The audience of predominantly 50-60 year olds seemed to enjoy it. I personally want to be challenged, shaken up, touched by an evening at the theater. The only challenge here was not to doze off.
