(no audio clips because of Actor's Equity, but still important to include)

A lovely, heartfelt production. A couple of weeks from being a regional theatre premiere, this production has been emulated and seen as rented elements across the country. Huge production including 28 wireless mics, 17 piece orchestra, fully reinforced, over 50 sound cues, beastly voice processing, and projections.
