My seat is stalls, row R, the view is nice, but there are second floor would block some views. Overall, it's a stunning show, very vivid, and impressed.

This whole production was 1st class from start to finish. The set design, creative effects and acting were some of the best that I've seen. Absolutely incredible.

The production was absolutely amazing, I had high expectations but it exceeded them. Only critique, not of the event itself but I wish I got a reminder of the time the day before because I was late. The people at the venue helped me get a discounted ticket for that night so I still saw the performance but a reminder email would have been great.

Ticketing was very easy. It was a very nice evening at the Phoenix Theater. My two sons (Stranger Things fans) invited me and my wife. We would love to come again.
