I've driven by the Barter Theater for decades and heard good things. A friend and I made the two hour trip. We got a good deal on the tickets as this was a week day afternoon performance. We sat 7 rows back at floor level. I'm tall and the seats were very un-comfortable and the leg room was lacking. I'm about 6'1" . I'm in my mid 60's and the average age of the audience was older that we. Very few young people. I have some hearing loss but not enough for me to wear a device at least yet. All the actors were female save one. I could hear and understand the male. The females, I could not understand several words which caused me to miss the punch line. I know they have remote microphone capability as I've spoken to people who were there when they were used. I do not know why they did not use microphones that day as the audience was a bunch of old geezers and geezeretes like us and I feel pretty sure many of them did not hear well either. The acoustics are poor in the theater. The is another one of those things to do once, but I will not go back.
