Traffic on 101 getting there was HORRIBLE, it took us 2 1/2 hours bumper to bumper the whole way. Made mistake of merging on to 110 and got off at 4th. Next time we will stay on 101 and get off at Temple.

Description

When times are tough and smiles are hard to come by, it’s good to know there’s still one escape where you can find an easy laugh, a pretty girl, and maybe even fall in love.

Writer Bob Martin and Director/Choreographer Casey Nicholaw  (both of The Drowsy Chaperone fame) join forces with the legendary composer  Charles Strouse (Bye Bye Birdie, Applause, Annie_) and acclaimed lyricist Susan  Birkenhead (_Jelly’s Last Jam) for this world premiere.
