After reservations soared, the last two days of the festival were hosted in a different venue, giving the staff including myself extra work to schlep everything from one place to the other. The recipient of The Audience Favorite [...]

Up front – full disclosure.  For the first few minutes of The Luck of the Ibis I was a little confused by what was going on and therefore not fully checked into the play yet.  I was waiting for something to click (something always does) and then the girl in the corner (Amy Landon) said [...]

The Women Who Live In “A Doll’s House”
