There's a lot more uphill walking than I'd remembered at the Ford - but not as much as at the Bowl!

Illuminated Manuscript had an amazing performance! The only downside was that it started much later than my tickets said the show time was. It was worth the wait, and the Ford theater was great as well. We greatly enjoyed the show!!
