We ate at Papa Razzis on Rt 2 in Concord afterwards and we really enjoyed out meals! Make a reservation. The show was at 3 and we arrived at the restaurant at 6.

The performance was great, with some very strong singing voices. The story line was quite moving.

I was not sure what to expect. I was touched immensely by the quality of the acting and the script itself. I might even see it again.

This was one of the most powerful musicals I have ever attended. The actors and musicians were superb, and the venue is beautiful. Especially outstanding were the two young performers, playing Natalie and Gabe.
