General Admittance (Seated by Usher)
How was your experience?
The theater is very badly designed. I think the floor actually slopes down away from the stage, so that only people near the front get a good view. This is important since pets are, after all, shorter than humans, so it's harder to see them. The tricks are not especially interesting. The cats and dogs are mainly rescuees from the pound, not specifically selected for their intelligence. It does have its amusing moments, but the show would probably appeal more to children, who would have a tough time seeing the stage due the shape of the floor of the theater. We actually paid a $10 premium per seat for better seats, and it didn't help much. I think the stage was designed for stand-up comics where seeing the stage wouldn't be so important. Finally, the sound quality wasn't great--the sound was set so loud that there was a lot of hissing and overdriving.
