Loved the show. This was the first time I have seen it. The singers and musicians were outstanding. Most of the jokes were old but liked the way they were done.

Both sets of seats are on opposite ends of row 1. So you will have a side ways view of the stage. I have never preferred front row unless it is a concert where you can stand, sing and gyrate. Not so in this theater. Seats... More
