WOW, it was not only entertaining but informative. I had no idea the education I was about to receive on history & facts. A great troop of performers. We loved it, so glad we went. We are still talking about it.

A great time!
Theatre is a bit difficult to navigate for disabled & the elderly & parking is a nightmare.
I will be parking outside of the city & taking a cab in next time I go to Davis Sq.

A small intimate theater was the perfect venue for this lively, entertaining night.
History with music and songs interspersed created a fast-paced show. I loved it.
