Thoroughly enjoyed this typically dark performance by New Adventures. Superb choreography and dancing along with some acting. Great troupe. Only issue I had was with the overwhelming perfume smells, wish some people would show a little consideration in the audience

I'm afraid I really don't recall, however for me these seats are too close to the stage. Front of the balcony is a good compromise.
