How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Overall, I was very disappointed! I went to this event with 5 other people, including my in-laws who are in their 60's. This location was completely inappropriate. The tickets say general admission, which would imply that there is no assigned seating. However, it was also limited seating and standing room only. Further, there was not enough space for people to stand on the stage/balcony level so most people had to stand in the lobby and watch the event on television screens. To make matters worse the sound was extremely poor so we couldn't hear the show at all. I literally wanted to cry. This was so disappointing! Paul Mooney and Dick Gregory are living-legends. It seemed like such a great opportunity. There were so many people who really wanted to see them perform--we were all so disappointed. The promoters and event planners should be ashamed! Why would anyone in their right mind think that the Castle would be a good venue to host a comedy show? Goldstar should never work with these individuals in the future. Everyone who attended this event deserves a full refund!
