How was your experience?
Whatever you do, DON'T sit in a seat in the far left section of the house for this play. We sat there and saw nothing but the backs of the cast and the backs of the set pieces. We missed most of the action and practically all of the actor's faces. Luckily, it was not a full house and we were able to change seats at intermission. The show is somewhat entertaining, but really doesn't stand on its own as a great show. A few laughs, but nothing really hilarious, as I had expected. The actor playing Norman is annoying and makes his character totally unsympathetic and completely unlikeable. I have a hunch that a different actor might have made the show better. We saw all three shows of the trilogy, and while seeing all of them makes the characters more understandable and fleshes out the plot, it did not make the plot or characters any more enjoyable. After seeing Living Together (the first one we saw) in the BAD seats, the dear man in the box office upgraded our seats for the other two plays without charging us an additional fee. It was so WONDERFUL of him and made me want to like the shows more.
