Price Level 4 - Mezzanine (Rows B-F)
How was your experience?
Thought this was a better choice than the LA Ballet Nutcracker simply because it was original from Russia...I was so so so wrong. Piped in music, low, corps not in sync at all, mistakes, elementary dancing, boring first 1/2 and laughable set design and costumes of what looked like grade school mascots! Silly moon dancing ruined what would have been slightly better dancing by the 'dolls'...just an embarrassment and ruined gift to daughter...waste of money which was hard enough to come by. If that wasn't enough the venue had terrible organization....100s of people out in the rain couldn't get tix till after it started, ushers with loud pagers talking to others and bright flashlights seating people in front of everyone till almost intermission!!!!! Could barely see or hear due to this and was not aware this was a low cost production with silly sets...almost looked like a local dance school show. Want $ back. comment on process: see above, did NOT get $$$$$ worth, show was waaaaay below par, couldn't hear or see almost all 1st 1/2 due to seating people venue didn't give tix to till after it started, ushers sending people to wrong doors/seats/talking....just TERRIBLE!!! Will stop payment on credit card if $$$ not sent back! oh yea, the parking you suggest....double the price plus extra for credit card since who had the cash, stopped traffic in the street to get in, therefore late, raining, had to park on roof...no help finding elevator...elevator broken, no help with ailment to even attempt to get down WET stairs, fall!!!, then hours later, had to crawl up and fall again, elevator broken, no help, no way to get to car!
