How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Thank You Goldstar for great seats in the first tier. For me the Segerstrom is not my favorite place to see a play (Pantages and Ahamanson are tops)... it seems like the sound gets lost in this cavernous house, and the acoustics aren't that good for plays. This was no exception - the orchestra was too loud, and the lyrics to the songs were drowned out. Unfortunately the lead character - Alex Owens, played by Jillian Mueller just didn't have the chops necessary to carry the whole show. It seemed like she was more comfortable while dancing with the ensemble. In this day of Dancing with the Stars people know what great dancing should look like, and her dancing was lacking. Her singing was adequate but she did not project. The good about this performance of Flashdance was Matthew Hydzik who played Nick Hurley - he had an excellent voice. The characters of Tess and Kiki played by Katie Webber and DeQuina Moore were fabulous in the show. Both of them could sing dance and act - triple threats! The choreography was good, and the background LED sets and projections were very cool!
