How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Not a good performance. The acoustics of the theater are strained, but other directors have not obliged their actors to face the audience and shout. Casting is very uneven, with a strong Nightingale (Parsons), but a Lady Croom who disastrously comingles lady Bracknell and a flirt, two more weakly cast females, and a Hodges who lacks any hint of the suavité Stoppard invites. And tutors and dons who mispronounce 'oeuvre,' 'Fermat' & 'monograph' .. come now! see this intriguing play elsewhere, & much better direction, in SF, and across the bay.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
the ACT theater acoustics are weak: mercifully, the free headset system realistically amplifies the stage: it is superb! do not hesitate to use it.
