What I liked

I liked the movement through the city, and a few of the interactions between cast members.

What I didn't like

Whole thing needed more testing, and the script needed to be written to make the people watching it not feel like they were left out of the story due to the writing style…

My overall impression

This, you could tell, was a Herculean undertaking. The biggest problem was our show was plagued with problems. I won’t say it didn’t seem rehearsed, but the whole thing felt like they only ran it once. I just felt like, for the amount of hype behind this show and the ticket price, I felt cheated. I kind of expected somewhat of a full story but ended up leaving more confused and frustrated then when I began.

From the esoteric and unnecessary surveys, to the unintelligible, high-fallutin banter of the cast, to the tech that didn’t work and the scenes that relied on it failing as a result, to almost being hit by a car as we were told to jaywalk by the leader of our group, this whole thing was very poorly executed.

This show needed a beta testing with people before their preview, or to make their preview absolutely free to work out the kinks, so the people who actually paid money for the show (which I did) felt like they were getting something of value, and not just a queen made out of trash.
