I wasn't sure what to expect going into the performance because of how the book was written, but I loved the way that they told the story. The acting was also phenomenal.

Really cool to see all the different research projects. Was super hot and stuffy and hard to walk around--perhaps spreading the project displays out more would be better?

Loved the documentary. Seeing it on a big screen surrounded by a bunch of my friends was a great experience.
One complaint/suggestion is that the lights from the sound/control screens was kind of distracting when sitting in the upper half of the theater. Perhaps there is a better way to minimize or better cover up the screen from those screens?
