My favourite part of the experience was the production. The stage, props, costuming, lighting etc..excellent. With regard to ticketing, I didn't know you *had* to open it in the Headout app. The email said "access your tickets faster offline with the Headout app", so I thought it was optional. When I got to the Lyceum Theatre and presented the confirmation email, I was asked to show the bar code for my ticket to be scanned. This left me confused because I didn't know what bar code the guy was talking about, but the other people I came with helped me and I was able to download the app, access the barcode and enter the building. Besides this little mishap, overall I think the ticketing process was very efficient. However, there's room for ambiguity to be cleared up so people know that they *must* download the Headout app to access their ticket (at least when seeing The Lion King) and don't end up like me :)
