The seats were comfortable, the view of the action was unparalleled, and the tent was air conditioned, which provided a welcome respite from the heat and humidity outside the tent. The original music adding drama to the show was performed by a live band comprised of talented musicians.
Overall, the show was exciting, recapturing the wonder that I had experienced when I saw the show in Manhattan as a child —not too many years ago.
