Over the course of a tense parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed fifth-grade teacher engage in a fraught conversation about the recent suspension and subsequent tragedy involving Gidion.

Will is in fine form with this cabaret show. I have attended each of his cabarets at Roundhouse the last 3 yrs and he continues to be the consummate musical theatre vocalist.
