Thanks you for sharing your thoughts and experiences. It's good to get all takes on the show early in the run. They need to be clear if seats have an obstructed view and the stones are a possible issue for all front rows in most venues, I assume. Great point. I saw the first two shows and loved the first night but really loved the second night. I think the show is much more layered than it seems at first. The open and close of act 1 ... to me....are perfect. The show is not 100% but I didn't feel they had far to go get it there. Huge talent... especially Andrew and Rob. I think it's great that we can disagree and discuss with civility. Seems we have one of the few forums like that!
