How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The venue, the old Crest theater was marvelous and it was great to see a performance there. Asner, 83, was fine in his solo show, but the historical play from which his show was adapted is from the 60s. It shows its age. How are we to know Ickes when we don't even know Sibelius, or current cabinet members. Asner has been doing this show since 2010, and reviews were lukewarm then. It's a tour-de-force that lacks real force. So it's about as efficient as a 63 Buick Riviera. I'm sure you'd rather drive a spanking new Hyundai.
