Review from JC

Although the theater is a "work in progress", the production was fabulous. The cast was one of the best I have ever seen! The costumes were wonderful as well. I would love to see it again.

Show was fantastic! Cast was excellent, voices and dancing was supurb, and set was incredible. Very impressive! My favorites were Mother and Coalhouse.
