Review from Charrise

Great production in a perfect small theater. The cast did an excellent job with such a tragic story. It was wonderful and I would recommend it highly.

Review from Shannon

This event was soo disappointing. To have a musical directed by a choreographer and so poorly musically directed did a dis-service to both the actors and the audience.
