How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A cabaret-style show with a uniquely clever concept performed by four outstanding singers. The numbers performed were generally well-known Broadway standards. The "pop-ups" are hand-written signs held up by the other three performers while one of them is singing. Some are informative, such as what musical the number was from, when it opened, etc., while others are off-the-wall and/or funny. The musical accompaniment was recorded karaoke-style orchestral arrangements. They worked OK, but I would have preferred a more basic live accompaniment with a piano and maybe a sax. The Jerome Hill Theater is a converted movie theatre in the same building as the Social Security offices. It is a nice space, although a cabaret-style setting with tables would be preferable. To get into the spirit of the show, but a drink beforehand and bring it in. There is no intermission.
