How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
To quote Mel Brooks: "We sat there sighing Groaning and crying There's no denying It's the worst show in town" * * * THE SHOW So, how exactly do you screw up a piece by Mel Brooks? I bet when the show was launched on Broadway in 2007, they did not count that one day it will come back to stage in its city of birth, Seattle, and reek. First and foremost: their Igor (Noah Duffy) is spectacular. Then again, he is the only seasoned actor in this play who has any serious credentials. And even he cannot save this wreck of a play. Note to the director: when your female lead singers sound like cheese grinders, when off-key singing is covered up by doing it really loudly, when most of your cast could beat William Shatner in Overacting Olympics, when your chorus is out of synch - it does not make good comedy any better. In fact, it ruins screenplay writer's genius work. The visual and audible assault had to stop and someone had to leave. Obviously, the actors would not do it, so we did during the Intermission.
