    My wife and I have tickets for the April 3, Saturday, 8pm show.

    Wow! Les Miserables on Valentine's Day and now the symphony in April. That's more culture than we usually get in a decade.

    Good show Saturday night, though a little short! Less than two hours which included the intermission and the encore. I paid about half the price for double the show length when I saw John Williams in Pittsburgh a couple of years ago. The song selections were pretty cool, though the Imperial March was missed. Everything else was great and the symphony sounded awesome. The Superman encore was a good choice and left everyone on a high note.

    The 501st represented well and their skit was well-received by the crowd. It's really quite amazing to hear people from all ages who know the characters all these years later. (Though I did have to tell a couple who the "red ones" were).
