  1. Last night was AWESOME!!!! The pre-show food was amazing, the show was unbelievably good (one small glitch, but that is expected in a live show) and the after party was even better!

    There were plenty of cast members to make sure your every need was taken care of (thanks to them – they deserve raises!). There were characters wandering around during the after-show party, great music (thanks to the band) and it was just overall a wonderful experience.

    I wish I could afford to go again this year!
