No late seating, so beware! And be patient when being directed to your seats/ getting your program. FYI, the even numbered seats are near the theatre door with odds opposite; all two-digit seat numbers (i.e., 29, 31, etc.) are on the "sides" with the three-digit ones (i.e., 102, 104, etc.) facing centre stage.

It didn't feel like the entire team (especially the director, choreographer and cast) were all on the same page. Most all of the cast were very talented but missed the satire and "tongue-in-cheekness" that this piece needs.

Description

The South Bay Professional debut of the Tony Award Winning Musical that critics have labeled “Broadway’s ‘IT’ Musical!” In this hilarious and song-filled tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution, the citizens must use public amenities regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Along the way, this hit show spoofs everything from Guys and Dolls to Les Miserables!
