Had a great opening at Centenary Stage Company, Kutz Theater with a fun talkback session afterwards. We were thrilled to have Tony-winning director/choreography Lynne Taylor-Corbett in our audience last evening (great to speak with her afterwards, she really liked the performance). Our unique musical documentary theater is suitable for both Friday the 13th and Valentine’s Day! Closing with a 2pm matinee on Sunday.
