How was your experience?
Just "OK". Hadn't been to this particular theater before, liked the fact that it was so small, everyone had a good seat (I had a great seat, front row). There were 4 people in this production, plus a live band (is it called a "band" if they just play background music?) The music was kind of overwhelming/too loud, especially at the beginning. There was no real "story line", just a bunch of different scenes w/songs...liked the more fast-paced, lively tunes, myself! Not my "type" of production, I thought it would be more of a musical with a plot & character development and such. Went opening nite, so they actually had champagne and snacks (sandwiches, pastries, etc) afterwards, which was probably my favorite part of the whole evening!
