Distracting LED Screen behind performers

Performers are ok but that large video screen is so distracting when trying to watch the performers.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Act after act, this entertaining series is reminiscent of the old vaudeville shows of once upon a time. The performers, some of whom have won awards or received media attention, enjoy performing in front of an energetic crowd while receiving national exposure. Meanwhile, they're good enough to keep audiences entertained, despite the lack of drama created by celebrity judges and the promise of money and fame. Ultimately, The Big Stage is a lively series designed to focus on, and celebrate, the talent being featured.
