The orchestra started quietly and then warmed up with superb cues and panache as they bumped it with great trumpet from Bob Baronio from the small pit orchestra seated in the middle of the courageously raised rectangular round walkway. The spaces behind the seats were also used for stripping, teasing and other exciting burlesque. Men had their heads rubbed, shawls draped over them and 'Mr.Goldstone' was drafted without notice from the audience. (Watch out, gentlemen — you may find yourself on stage!) The only complaint I could make about the stage setup was that if you sit across from the spotlights, you will be blinded.
