This is an amazing adaptation of the movie, and honestly, I preferred this over the movie. Great acting, even better music and a night of bliss

Great communication from the start ( I emailed them twice before the show’s performance) AND 28 minutes before the show started I received both a text and email noting that the Headout host was on her way. ‘Debbie’ showed up within minutes - was organized, patient and thorough when distributing the tickets in a red envelope that was labeled. It looked to me that they were about 15 or so parties waiting to receive their tickets from her. was on her way. It was actually appreciated that in the email itself was a link to track Debbie’s location as she made her way to the theater.

The app was super easy to use, but the most important reason was the representative at the show. She was great!
