Reviewer's comments

"Again the same style from this builder: simple architecture, no much care with the texturization, hard enemies from the very beginning and not enough ammo or guns to deal with them; again the same traps: darts, spikes, steam emitters... Only pull a couple of switches to open doors and kill more enemies. At least the glass maze was not so nasty. If you've played the first levels from this author you already know what awaits here." - Jose (22-Jan-2018)

"Lara's wearing a rather skimpy dress and is presumably going to attend a show about herself. This is again very much in Serena's 'style' and really not worth looking at for an immersing experience. There's plenty of demigods around, but nothing challenging to overcome, and it seemed rather weird that they were placed directly outside the stage (unless to turn away those who bought from ticket tours). Just my thoughts." - Ryan (01-Sep-2016)

"That's one weird concert hall where they host performances to die for, ticket control is of inhuman efficiency and they also punish improffesional acting with impalement. Special thanks must be given to their furniture designer whose admirable effort provided enough chairs to grant everybody a permanent seat. But keep in mind the backstage crew doesn't like being disturbed and scene control machinery can be dangerous. In case of emergency mind the quick evacuation route over the boiler room. SUMMARY: Quick and oversized yet well decorated." - DJ Full (31-Jan-2016)

A cool idea for a level! A stage and Lara performing her 'show' :) This level was very short and easy but enjoyable. I'm getting tired of these huge scorpions and endless hords of demigods though.. 2005-06-22 - QRS (22-Jun-2005)

"Bad level. Thank God that I finished fast. Not many things to do. Hmm well Lara needs to kill scorpions harpies dogs and three demigods open two doors and gets a rest from this level." - Yoav (08-Mar-2004)

"I don't know about you but I'm sure Lara's dress could have done with a little more material in spots and how she kept her outstanding assets in place without barely any support was astounding and this is coming from a girl who knows if she were wearing that dress it would have become a skirt within 3 steps! Now to the level oh who's kidding who what level! Again another short random large enemy killing oddly designed roomed foray into Serena's mind. And what's with the sea of chairs? I thought I was an early audience member for a taping of the Jerry Springer show!" - Sash (18-May-2003)

"I must say I found these surroundings extremely boring high high walls in corridors and huge rooms. Get from one point to another no mission just shoot the too many enemies. Run through a room full of chairs pull a lever in a room with rolling spike cylinders run through a glass maze jump on pillars over lava and finish. That's about it." - G.Croft (26-Apr-2003)

"I hope Lara got a good deal with the chair salesman because she surely bought a lot of them to fill her theatre! It's about the only thing that makes this level stand out. Other than that you'll finish this level in one breath taking a kind of an obstacle course (fire demi-Gods dogs) and getting through some lever pushing." - bERT (09-Apr-2003)

"I thought the stage and the auditorium with the many chairs was a good idea but it wasn't a big part of the level at all and didn't fit in with the rest of the level. The new outfit would have been great if she had done more in front of the 'audience'. The rest of the level was a test of Lara's strength and speed with a large scorpion a few demigods harpies fires jumps over lava and giant rotating blades which were all ok and the poisonous darts and unmarked spike tiles which were annoying. There's also a short maze which you can get through in about 15 seconds if you know the path." - RaiderGirl (31-Mar-2003)

"Another Serena level you can spot them. Big rooms rolling spikes and a strange mishmash of textures. There are other traps and the fiercest ones of the enemies but even then it is over before you know it. Best thing is the theater where she will be greeted with applause and Lara wearing a nice dress to match. Although I wouldn't raid in that one. Come on Serena we know you can build and import other textures now make us a fun adventure you can do it. 24-03-2003" - Gerty (31-Mar-2003)

"Difficult to really rate this level as it is very short. I am sure if it were twice as long then the marks would be significantly increased as the level itself is not bad for what it is. Harpies dogs and Demigods for the opposition but no real hardship. The best atmosphere is created as Lara (in a sexy Latin American dance outfit) enters an auditorium to applause. Puzzles are none existent (ignoring the extreeemly easy mirror "maze"). 10 minutes of gameplay (being generous here) if you want to attempt it." - Whistle (31-Mar-2003)

"Nothing here to see. Ten minutes of killing a big scorpion harpies dogs and demigods with one of them staying still and two levers to push. The rooms are huge and empty with stretched textures. After passing a maze which isn't much actually some more enemies and the level ends. Too short and boring." - Kristina (31-Mar-2003)

"Don't really understand the point of this level Lara has her TRC opera dress on and enters a huuuuge stage and hears applause even if no one but a bunch of harpies dogs demigods and scorpions have bought a ticket to see her show (or rather kill the moderator of the show). The author of the level really has a lot to learn to reach a higher level of proficiency and if she sometime in the future makes a masterpiece you can download this level to see that even she had to start small." - eTux (31-Mar-2003)

"Maybe this level looks like a demo however this is excellent! I love the theatre despite of I think this is a bit bleak. Lara's dress is great too! :-) The added sounds are also fine - I already missed only the exalting audience but instead of them demigods jackals and harpies welcomed Lara. :-) I didn't find a secret in the level at least the Statistics didn't count any but I found both the UZI and the Shotgun. I hope it will be continued." - Obig (31-Mar-2003)

"OK giant scorpion demigod spikes fire steam darts dogs harpies and that's the first 3 minutes. A concert hall that applauds you Lara in formal evening dress. Then you have a spike room with no purpose I could see two switches demigod large 'glass' maze through to a room with harpies dogs and that's you're second 3 minutes. No it was actually about 10 minutes all told! A quickie level if you need a quick TR fix. Unless I've totally lost the plot and didn't find everything!" - CC (31-Mar-2003)

"Banana's. That's what I eat when I'm playing a TR Level. Or more precisely when I've died and I'm waiting for the level to re-load I usually take a bite of a Banana while staring at the Load screen. At the very least I get through one Banana with every level usually more (although I generally stop after two as there are only so many banana's you can eat at one time) but with this level it is a telling point indeed that almost half my Banana had still to be eaten by the time the level ended. And that's about it really. The textures are often garish often inappropriate and usually stretched. The Stage area is rather fun. The enemies big but not difficult to neutralise. Oh and Lara's dress provides some Adult entertainment when you get her to crawl forward. Isn't that typical? I do porn for a living and I end up looking at it again when I'm off duty." - Orbit Dream (23-Mar-2003)

"Not sure what the author had in mind here? Lara looks seductive in her outfit but it did not fit the level. There are no puzzles other than pulling two levers no artifacts to find and senseless shooting at enemies: demigods scorpions jackals and harpies. Textures were horrible rooms were empty apart from a few flowers and a stage area with many chairs. There were two sounds added and that was it. Well another useless level - sorry :-(" - Engelchen Lara (23-Mar-2003)

"Apart from Lara's sexy 'show dress' and the kind of neat atmosphere of the stage area and the applause as she approaches it this is a typical Serena level with a few huge rooms some strong enemies (demigods harpies a giant scorpion) some spike fire steam dart traps and two levers to push. 10 quick minutes to complete it." - Michael (22-Mar-2003)
