How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Parking was super easy on a nearby street and the lot was only $3. Folks at the box office were very friendly as was the ushering staff. Be aware that restaurants in the area are PACKED until at least show time. It was difficult to find food at 1 and even 1:30 pm. The show itself was a solid "good". The company had excellent voices and dance ability. Donkey was funny and full of energy and Fiona had excellent comic timing and an amazing vocal range. Strangely, it seemed like the title character had very little to do. The song and dance numbers for the ensemble were rich in movement and vocals while for the leads it seemed they were lost with little or no direction. We appreciated the excellent costuming and production values and the orchestra was excellent. We'd have liked a little more variety at the concession stand (there were only sweet treats available).
