How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This is a powerful production. Do not go expecting to see a typical musical comedy. The events covered are tragic and thought-provoking. I found it to be a bit like "Ragtime" in that it covers roughly the same time period in American history and has similar themes of discrimination and prejudice. I found 3D's production outstanding (as all of the shows of theirs that I've seen have been.) My main complaint (other than the uncomfortable seating in the balcony) is that it was often difficult to hear the lyrics of the songs because the orchestra was too loud.

Help others enjoy a great night out

If you're an average-sized man or a larger woman, you might want to avoid the balcony at the Plummer, or see it at Redondo Beach. The past two times I've been assigned to seats in the balcony that were EXTREMELY uncomfortable (worse than the worst economy class airline seat.) I had to move at intermission both times; fortunately there were empty seats higher up in the balcony that were somewhat more comfortable.
