How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I found the production well exceeded my expectations, particularly the leads, Kerchak and Kala and their personification (um, not aping...) of apes, Tarzan (dang, the man was fit), Jane, and Terk. Good powerful voices and characters. Music was performed simply, but always on key with the performers and size of the set. The theater experience was so immediate--the set is sparse, but immersive and imaginative and used to good effect, though perhaps lighting could be improved a bit. Both patrons and support staff at the theater were so welcoming and friendly, that as a first time attendee at the Pearl, I was made to feel as if I had visited someone's home. I enjoyed the live experience and would recommend it to anyone: entertaining enough for adults, but accessible to children.

Help others enjoy a great night out
