How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We sat in the Balcony and it was wonderful. We could see everything without straining or shifting in our seats. The sound was amazing. I felt like they were right in front of us. I have seen this show twice before; once on Broadway, and again when it came on tour to Chicago. I know it has been many years since I last saw it, but I would have to say I enjoyed this production the most. I knew all of the music, but there were some new musical parts added, lyrics changed and I feel it added to the story. There is always talk about the Helicopter in this show. When I have seen it before, the helicopter was there, but was masked behind a skrim and not well seen. This production showed a "full" helicopter. For me it added to the intensity of the scene. I took my 2 teenage daughters who had heard the music but never had seen the show. They loved it as well. I just don't think you can find such a beautiful score in these more recent Broadway shows. Thank you Goldstar for adding reduced tickets to this fabulous production! We could not have seen this show, had it not been for your offer.
