Multiple viewings of theater productions (even ones with the same cast) are included as performances change one day to the next.

YAY! Looking forward to reading more of this :)

I saw MIB3 a few weeks ago with my family and I thought it was fun and funny. Looks like you enjoyed it too!

LOL, thank you!! =P

I did!! I mean, MIB is part of my childhood and all, so there's a huge nostalgia aspect. But it was still really clever and enjoyable and just well done all together. The only bit I didn't like was the lack of the MIB song. =P
