How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It was better than I had expected. Anthony Vacio did not epitomize the image of tall and handsomeTony in West Side Story, but boy, can he sing. My name is Maria; and when he sang "Maria" I was astonished. He performed it so beautifully and powerfully. (Suggestion: He should straighten his posture.) Why is Katee Drysdale's name so low on the list of cast members? (Playbill) It should be next to Anthony's name. Katee also did not epitomize Maria's image; she looks nothing at all Puerto Rican; she's so white with light brown hair. Well, those are my major comments; I could go on and on, but I'm not being paid for this review. :) All in all, though, I enjoyed myself. It was a very good production for the Young Actors' Theatre. Congratulations.,
