How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I had heard about the La Mirada Playhouse for years, but this is the first show I saw there. First rate show in a beautiful theater. The entire cast was spot-on. Nick DeGruccio is a well-known local director who always delivers top-notch productions. Bets Malone always is outstanding and she nailed the "lead" role in this ensemble. This cast quality was very comparable to the national tour of "Normal" I saw a year or two ago. There was no weak link. Next to Normal is a powerful emotional story that was captivating to see a second time.
