How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
After hearing rave reviews about the show, I must say I was disappointed. I didn't realize before attending that there would be quite a bit of foul language and gestures. which didn't particularly bother me. But there were a number of young children in the audience, and I didn't feel it was appropriate for them. What I disliked the most was the sound. Even though I was sitting in tier 2, the music and noise were much too loud. I can't imagine how it must have sounded to people in the front of the orchestra section. I'm a season ticket holder for the SCFTA performances (had to give up my seat for the show last week), and this was my least favorite show of the season so far. As far as my seat was concerned, I thought I ordered the highest priced ticket; but my seat was on the far right of the second tier, even though there were many empty seats in more desirable sections. Fortunately, I was able to move to the center of the section where few seats were occupied.
