Part of the challenge with writing this review was the fact that I was sitting in the rear mezzanine. (I didn't win lottery ... for the first time.) The Pantages isn't quite as big as some of the Los Angeles theatres, but it's big enough that if you're sitting in the last 7 or 8 rows, you really can't see the actors' faces -- and I have good corrected vision with my contacts.

Okay, since I won't be hashing out a FULL review (since I've done so for this cast many, many times already ... and there wasn't a whole lot that was new), I'll just list a few noteworthy things:

If I think of more to add, I will. But this may be it.
