We had seats in Row L on the right wing. These were not as bad as others have said they were. We didn't miss anything. Clearly the mainstay of the cast was Cicely Tyson. Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. framed her performance allowing her...continued

The play was wonderful, sweet story, engaging, wonderfully acted. Cicely Tyson was magnificent! The seats were terrific- the Sondheim theater is not really that large, so the last row seats still had a good view. Additionally, they were a step up...continued
