DAVID BARTON

Thank You Chelsea, I enjoyed your viewpoints and your message. Everyone should vote and we should help anyone who wants to vote make their feelings heard. I just wish we had more people stepping up and letting their voice be heard. Thank You again. The location was fantastic. Even with a baseball game happening across the river there was parking and dinning available. It might have been a good suggestion to have the audience mic preset-up but it worked out fine. Take care on the slopes and we look forward to seeing you again in Pittsburgh.

INTERESTING DIALOG, BUT NOT A LOT OF SUBSTANCE.

I thought the "show" was somewhat thought provoking but only glazed over a few topics with a little comedy in between. I thought the host did well, I thought Chelsea seemed real and genuinely concerned with today's issues but again, not a lot of substance. Also, the seating for those who purchased VIP tickets was not thought out well. There were several speaker/monitors in our way and one couldn't actually see Chelsea and Jana. The usher did her best to accommodate everyone though.

OK

She was very open and honest about her views on politics. But thats what the whole conversation and show was about. Anybody was able to come up to the microphone and talk to her, which was cool. The show lasted an hour and a half. The tickets were on the cheaper side. Her quest did most of the talking. Humor was hit or miss. But to be completely honest, I probably wouldn't see this specific show again. All and all it was an okay show. I just would rather here about her druken stories then Trump. Also the theater was absolutely beautiful and amazing. The seats are perfect. You never have to look over someone's head because these seats are off centered from each other and at a slight incline. Also the restarunt Nola, about 2 blocks over was absolutely perfect. Overall great day.

UNDERWHELMED

I was really looking forward to this show but it was a let down. Start with theatre: not comfortable at all- and I midget sized legs. The mics weren’t working and took about 7 tries to figure out. People were up and down all through the show and it was very distracting and I thought disrespectful to Chelsea and guests. As for substance: it was first show so I’ll forgive nerves etc. Chelsea herself is great. She reads the whole first chapter which was perhaps a little too long but she made it funny. Her interviewer came on and that’s where it fell apart. She didn’t know how to engage in a structured dialogue and often spoke more about herself. It was like a big therapy session. I think Chelsea would be able to create lightness and humor with the issues- and it did come out occasionally - but with her side kick, it didn’t work. I’d rather read her book.

WHERE IT WENT ON THE DOWNSLIDE

I think Chelsea came out strong, I thoroughly enjoyed the first part of her show. And I actually really like the chef she brought out to interview her. But that’s with the show down the slide. The chef should stick to her expertise, and Chelsea should’ve continued her strong showing. It just didn’t work well. That said, I’m so glad I went. Chelsea is still one of my heroes.

MORE LIKE A THERAPY SESSION

Spent a decent amount of money to see my girl. LOVE her....But I have to say...MET said show started at 8pm..She didnt come out until around 9 AND lasted about an hour???? She READ part of her book to us...and then talked to some lady on stage that seemed.like her therapy session....No standup comedy...Was very disappointed....Dont think I will be going to another show....

HORRIBLE. THERAPY SESSION NOT COMEDY

This show was not a stand up comedy. Not only was it not remotely funny, but it was slightly depressing. She just talked about her narcissistic self and her past tragedies. Definitely regret spending the money. Will tell everyone not to see her
