Back for an encore performance, this blues and pop musical set in 1969 is about three sisters -- an idealistic activist, a suburban housewife and a diligent professor -- who gather for the third year in a row for a funeral. Two years ago it was Mamma. Last year it was Daddy. This year it is their only brother. When they return to pack up the family home, sparks fly as they share wine, memories, dreams and secrets. During the last night in their childhood home, these three sisters determine what family means to them now. Starring Helen Hayes Award winners Bernardine Mitchell (A Resting Place with Morgan Freeman, Mahalia) and Roz White (Gee's Bend). Learn More

It starts slowly. But the one act, hour and a half, review deffinetly picks up steam, I knew surprisingly few of the musical numbers -- given that I know a fair amount of the American Musical songbook. But many of the "first-timers" (for me) were worth the listen. While there is no dialogue, there is more than music. Dancing, acrobatics and even fire eating create a Great Show. While the entire cast is accomplished, the sheer drive and the multipicity of talents of Andrew Sonntag was remarkable.
