The Show Opened! 2 More Weekends left!
Hi Backers & Friends!
We had a wonderful Opening Weekend at Links Hall, with two sold out shows, and two other performances that were about half-filled. Our audiences were so responsive and it was a very special experience.
We've now moved into a new space at Teatro Luna on N Clark and Irving Park Rd. Tickets can be bought here. Click!
