* Slightly Recommended * I had a real problem with the Chicago Folks Operetta production of “Johnny Johnson” running at Stage 773. Unfortunately, although I saw the show, I couldn’t see the first fifteen minutes (first three songs). My view (in common with about two-thirds of the audience) was actors’ backs. Since they were a step up from my seat in the front row, their backsides were at my eye level. Everywhere I looked, I could see people bending in different directions, straining to see. This is an egregious slight to the audience. I hate to be negative in my reviews, but I can only give “Johnny Johnson” 1 Spotlight
