The last remaining members of the Danny Tidwell Diehard Committee (soon to be disbanded) arrived early enough to find no Tidwell on the program but not early enough to escape.

The positives: although we were seated in the Orchestra pit, the chairs were very comfortable.

The audience was attentive & quiet, no whoo-whoos or chatting.

We paid for the lowest priced tickets.

It was a really beautiful night out there.

The negatives: everything else. Escape was made at intermission.

Thanks (I think) for the report, zerbinetta. Sorry for your disappointment, which I share even though I wasn't there.

No Danny was disappointing. The choreography was excruciating. :clapping:
