How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
My wife and I are pretty much in agreement that this show was scarcely above the level of a college skit. Granted, we laughed a bit. But the next morning we realized that, unlike most of our theater experiences, we did not mention the show to each other. Not once. By the next evening we had forgotten the show, as we sat through "Saturday Night Fever," a highly praised and professionally done musical at the Kennedy Center. And there you have it. Two shows, both by the same discount ticket outlet, with widely publicized ballyhoo. I guess you can't win them all, and we usually have been delighted with our choices. We look forward to more aand better productions in the future.
