Hard work and I gave up

I sure this look good on paper and on reading the overview, I was interested to hear it given the sale price. My problem was I couldn't hear some of the performers. I could just picture them on a stage with a single mic, the sound mixing consisting of people being moved away from it. It just sounded that poor to me, but I will say, my hearing is not good, potentially someone else may experience this differently. Shame in a way, I thought it was a way for me to hear the bards work, I can't if I go to a theatre :-|
