How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Just as I expected. My "wholesome" need is filled to the max. I have always loves Garrison and his wit and honest presentation. I especially liked his idea of an intermission. I returned to my seat from the men's room and esperienced Garrison leading the entire audience singing "Amazing Grace," all 5 nerses. It was stunning. We don't experience that kind of beauty much anymore. I preferred the Hollywood Bowl venue, however. I hated the Greek parking situation. Stacked is bad enough, but when they make you exit over a pitch black dark winding narrow sharp curve filled road to an exit several miles from where you enter. Give me the Hollywood Bowl Shuttle every time. Plus the parking was $15, which is exorbitant. The Disney and the Music Center is $9, and the Bowl Shuttle is free for me, because I take the Red Line ($0.50 round trip) to the Shuttle. Also the Bowl has those really cheap seats in the back. I love to sit back there.
