How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Ms. McDonald performed with her trio for over two hours. She played many of the classic songs she is known for and threw in a number of new surprises: some from new composers and others from legendary composers who had not, up to this point, been represented in her repertoire. She also played the piano beautifully for on Adam Guettel song during the performance. Between songs she told stores, spoke about her children, paid tribute to her father, joked with the audience and the band, and made some playful jabs at the LA "lifestyle". It was a truly entertaining evening. For $20,00, our seats in the massive Dorothy Chandler Pavilion were actually very good.
