How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I had never seen the Fab Four, and, based on the reviews, was looking forward to a fun, well done performance. I went with three others, all of whom had seen this group and really enjoyed the performances they had seen. Unfortunately, this show did not live up to the billing. I'm not sure if the show was unrehearsed, if it suffered from the poor sound system, or if the group was just having an off night. There were too many breaks while the group changed clothes and too many odd bits that must have come from Beatles' movies, but were done without explanation or context. Two of the performers (George? Ringo?) appeared to be bored and uninvolved and the "Paul's grandfather and the two "school girls" sections were head-scratchingly weird. We did not stay until the end, so maybe in improved in the later sections.The only thing that saved the experience was that we left early to get fair food. Sorry Fab Four.
