    I can only imagine McLaughlin’s review of this!

  • Eason

    An excerpt from McLaughlins future review: “the middle schoolers couldn’t fully understand the complexities of adults in 1867 New York. Too ambitious! I left the theater honestly believing none of them had even stepped foot in New York City, circa 1867. It was like a middle school production done by 12 year olds. One of the actors, Little Billy Smith, was so distracting and awful because his voice kept cracking when he spoke. Voice cracking?! I immediately demanded my 6 dollars back.”

    I’m sure if Edgar Winter was in the production he would enjoy it. Just a guess.

    The Where, you’re posts never cease to amaze me. Or confuse me, for that matter.
