"I agree with a prior commenter who said he loved the show live but only liked the streaming version. Although the cast had already done the show at the McCarter Theater in Princeton for 5 or 6 weeks, this was filmed in the first week of NYC previews, and the performances are not yet modulated to perfection. The audience is also dead, which doesn't help."

And I agree with you, although my sense was that the issue was more the second thing (a dead-ish audience) than the first. Of course, one feeds upon the other, so it's hard to tell for sure.
