Their lot is tiny. Use Metro or the Colonial Garage close by.

It seemed very forced, about a lesbian or bisexual. Did not feel true to Singer (author of story).
Liked Streisand movie much more.
Music also out of place.

Very good show in every way. Those who thought that the modern music was "inappropriate" to the age just don't understand musical theater, ranging from Camelot to Jesus Christ, Superstar.
