My audience recording of this show was rendered somewhat redundant when a soundboard recording showed up on bootleg CD more than 10 years later. But the otherwise excellent bootleg CD has a few minor digital mastering glitches which are obviously not present on my tape. Conversely, my recording is missing a very small portion near the end of "The Gift" where the recorder auto-reversed the tape.

The soundboard recording has a much cleaner (more sterile?) sound to it: this recording is much more like how it sounded to me at the time.

some scans included: show preview, ticket stub, Playhouse events flyer and show review
