General Admission Special
How was your experience?
The second half was way better! I almost left during the intermission since I thought the first part of the show was very boring and poorly done. I thought the father was overplaying the character and at times seemed a bit cheesy. It wasn't clear that the son was supposed to be a ghost haunting this woman, perhaps some make-up or different costuming would have told the audience this sooner. I can't believe that in this small venue they mic'd the actors and I still could barely hear them sometime...what's up with that? Since this is a musical, hearing the music and lyrics is CRITICAL to help move the story along.
