How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Excellent voices and music. A thoroughly professional performance. However, this was a different cast than the recent performance at the Ahmanson Theatre, and did not measure up to the energy and dramatic tension of that stellar performance. They were hampered by several technical issues: the micing and audio balance was poor, and several important cues were a little sloppy. While certainly far above the quality L.A.'s many semi-amateur productions, I left the theatre feeling that the entire performance was simply rather lackluster.
