How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Can't give a fair review of production because the theater was so incredibly cold that my kids and I were huddled for warmth. People around us were sniffling and complaining. Usher said, "yes it's chilly" and walked away. Older female usher on our side kept yelling at people with cell phones (texting prior to show begining) "no pictures!, you sir, no Pictures this is the last time I'm going to tell you". My kids dubbed her the mean lunch lady, comparing her and the situation to school. I mentioned to house manager at end of show and all he could say was sorry with a blank look and minimal eye contact. The production may have been as wonderful as Annie, Mary Poppins or Matilda, but we couldn't form that opinion due to discomfort. My 8 year old wanted to leave, but I spent over $200 on tickets, had to stick it out.
