General Admission Complimentary

How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Awful!!! We got there at 7:25, after dinner a few blocks away. Doors are suppose to open at 7 pm, for general admission and at 7:30 they still weren't ready to take in the audience! Once inside the auditorium, (squeeking) doors were opening and shutting during the performance. There are broken chairs (taped off instead of removed). There wasn't any ushering so we weren't even sure which door led to the auditorium in the first place. As for the performance, Vincent Cook didn't even have the stamina to deliver the dialogue, let alone a performance in which he pretends to be Ali. His depictions and stories seem made up half the time. Immense portions of history were skipped. It seemed that he was just making stuff up as he went along because he was to tired to remember the script. Couldn't remain in character (he tries to portray several). Costume changes are poorly handled. There isn't any crew for light. Sound is awful when they attempt to play music. We walked out!!!! I was extremely disappointed. I am encouraging my partner to support independent theater and artists. This didn't help at all!!!! We had comped tickets, but they weren't work our fuel and time.

Help others enjoy a great night out
