I was lucky to be invited to the show. I was on the 3rd row, which we had to dawn ponchos to keep from getting messy. (Don't worry - it is not that messy). The interaction with the audience is stellar. Go to the Show!

We had so much fun- witty & exciting. Since we didn't have a car, we did Lyft (there were four of us and we didn't feel like taking a train). There was enough time for us to walk around before the show- definitely less touristy...More
