How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I ordered tickets for us and out of town guests and was anticipating a similar experience to Wicked; however this play definitely is not in the same league as Wicked. The story was simplistic, the costuming bland, and this was definitely not a musical. The acting was bearable and held up primarily by the vaudevillian, slapstick antics of the Stash character, although his OMG scene went on far too long with too little effect other than boredom. Performing the same scene with several different affects and a few "OMGs" thrown in, would have been far more effective. Remaining cast seemed amateur and easily forgettable. The only very creative aspect was their use of props for the ship and alligator on this stage that was too small for this performance.
