How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We were so excited for this show, being fans of both Beckett and Bill Irwin. However....we were sorely disappointed. Not only did the actors have to be prompted for lines multiple times, but it seems like they didn't even read the plays. Maybe actors should watch this version of "Play" for a little insight regarding how it should be done: http://youtu.be/WTFkYVR2sL8 And as far as "Endgame" is concerned...just read the play. (The two older folks in the tins did well, but it actually hurt to watch Bill Irwin butcher this show). We always love going to A.C.T, still enjoyed having a night out, the beautiful design of the building, and having a drink in the lounge before the show, but as far as the actual show, we were incredibly disappointed.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Dress nice for theatre
Take BART!
Eat before, it's a little expensive however I did have a very good glass of wine in the lounge
