I first got a taste of Come From Away at the Mirvish season preview and I was hooked. The number they performed that day – the opening number – had me craving more. When I got the invitation to opening night, of course I responded with a resounding YES! right away. My partner and I  [ Read More ]

Those are just a couple things I’ve encountered this month thanks to Mirvish Productions. First up was Sister Act. The musical is the movie brought to life on stage. The music is different,  [ Read More ]

There are a bunch of things I’d like to tell you about, so instead of doing a bunch of different posts, I thought I’d put them together.
