How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I must admit I an "A Chorus Line" snob. This is the watershed show that changed the course of my life. It still is a bit odd to me that many people have never seen the show or sadly only know the movie. This is not the slick by-the-numbers reproduction that the last 2 touring companies in LA were. This is a much rawer, honest production than I have seen in a long time. Several actors had refreshingly new "takes" on their characters. There were a few glitches to be sure—a sound issue here and there, periaktoids turning wrongly, a dropped hat—all forgivable. What this production has is heart and the right energy to lift it well above the ordinary. Kudos and thanks to all involved!
