How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was a good show. The singing was very good but a bit old fashioned sung mostly in operetta style. The staging was a bit bland and monochromatic, but overall a good show for the price. A shocking bit of theatre was playing out in the audience though. A woman seated in front of us was checking her iphone during the performance, which disturbed the man behind her. He tapped her on the shoulder and asked her to put it away. She turned around and told him loudly not to touch her. He began to shake the seat of the women's husband. He almost jumped over his seat to get at the man behind them and began using very bad language. All of their behavior was very distracting and a disgrace. Such unexpected drama! Some people should really not attend the theatre and stick to television.

Help others enjoy a great night out
