How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The actual performance itself was very good but the theater was so hot that we all stripped to the bare and still could not take the sauna like air in the theater. We complained to the management many times but it did not get a response. The signs as you enter in to the Theater says that if you are late for the performance you will be seated at intervals. Well there is no point in putting up those signs and have your own staff totally ignore it and seat people during the performance constantly interrupting and moving people in to their seats. It reflected poorly on the performers, and the audience. To top it off, people brought in their dinner and were eating making a lot of noise and distracting during the performance. I was furious with the management and the rude audience. What is this a picnic or a theater? I do not support eating and drinking in theaters and this case was the best example of how wrong it is to allow audience to bring food in. In Europe and other parts of the world during concerts, plays, ballet performances no one brings in their picnic to the theater. The heat, the food, the noise took away from the performance and I left at half time. Totally disappointed and furious to say the least. I will let Septime Weber know how horrible the experience was.
