I love Sammy Cahn’s great lyrical output, but this show was a mistake, from an hour BEFORE the curtain went up to a half-hour AFTER the show ended!

The flyer and online information stated that Sam Harris would perform which I was very much looking forward to - in fact the key reason for my attending. He was not in the show and there was no explanation why. A simple announcement at the...continued
