I was a little confused on how this ties into the main series in the first part of the show. I was blown away once everything clicked into place with amazing performances from the crew, fleshing out the background to known characters and how it all fits in. The sets and effects were done very well and is definitely something you cannot miss as a Stranger Things fan leading into the final season!

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.
