How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I have seen P&B on stage twice before, and awhile back in the movies. They were most enjoyable. However, this current production was lackluster and boring. I felt the performers were going through the motions and not living the parts. Many audience members did not come back from intermission and several left while the show was going on. Usually, if I don't like something, I can say, "Well, at least it was entertaining." Not in this case. 3 hours of a mediocre performance is hard to take.
