I attended the Sara Jarosz show this past weekend. The music was great, but the venue logistics were amateurish at best. My tickets, purchased at the Hippodrome, actually had the seat number scribbled on with a pen. There was no seating chart published online and many people found their groups separated once inside.
Did I mention that they began letting patrons in prior to the show without taking tickets? Not a problem until they pushed everyone outdoors into the July heat only to re-admit an hour later. It was my impression that the Hippodrome managers had never actually managed a show before.
The caliber of the performers warranted a better showing from the venue. Personally, I won't be returning and hope the promoter finds an alternative before booking another talent such as this. Disappointing.
