So how have those spring musicals been?
This column is a promotional one, meaning when I write about a show it has not happened yet. I often wonder how some of these shows went for the cast, crew, and their audience.
A number of shows have been profiled in this space in the last month. Have you seen any of them? How were they?
If you had a particular experience as an audience member that you would like to share, perhaps when spring musical season winds down I can share some audience feedback. We know that parents and friends of our young thespians are always supportive, but perhaps you simply decided to attend a show as an audience member. What did you think?
If you had a positive experience that you would like to share, please feel free to message me. If I get some good responses, I will share them with you in a future column.
