Hear him roar
As I'd really gotten a kick out of Perseverance's recent production of "Gypsy," I dove into Michael Christenson's review of the play head first, hoping to relive my exciting moments of music and laughter and fun! Things started great and I remember thinking "Oh Man! This guy can even read and write!"
