How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
An well crafted, entertaining play that is well written and superbly performed. I would highly recommend it. What a pity that Steppenwolf Theater directors/producers do not believe in amplifying their actors' voices. The actors are not trained to project and frequently - particularly when they are speaking upstage - their lines are lost. Such a shame! If you don't have seats close to the front - be prepared to struggle to hear what is said. I won't subscribe to Steppenwolf any more because they don't seem to care about this. It is something I have mentioned after every performance I have seen there. Nonetheless, the players and directors should be congratulated on providing a really theatrical experience. Ensemble acting was outstanding (except for the fight scene - which needs to look more "real". Wonderful casting.
