Overall, despite my having wanted to get rid of this ticket, I felt I got my money's worth. My seat was really good -- front row of mezzanine, and I forget how nice it is to sit a little farther back to be able to take in the entire stage at once. Yet I was close enough to have a good idea of facial expressions (though it might have been even better if I had a better contact lens prescription for my right eye ...).

Since this is a cast I've reviewed over and over and over, most of what I'm going to discuss is stuff that is new to me or particularly noteworthy. And I'm too lazy to write up coherent paragraphs ...
