Closed Today Because I Will Be At:

LOVE the theatre and have ever since I saw the original production of
"Oklahoma" on Broadway in 1943 when I was 7 years old---okay I KNOW you
weren't born yet!!!-- I wanted to be Alfred Drake who played the
original Curly and then a couple of years later I wanted to be John
Riatt when I saw him play Billy in "Carousel"--sadly I couldn't carry a
tune. In any case since then I have seen thousands of plays and musicals
and the lights going down in a theatre before the show starts still
sends a shiver down my spine!

about 4 years ago, Corine, who has 2 show business related web sites-- and me about reviewing
toruing companies of Broadway shows and it is like being in theatre
heaven for me. Tonight I will be going to see the opening night of the
touring company of  "The Book of Mormon" in Fort Lauderdale at the
Broward Performing Arts center and I can't wait. Look for my review.

(An aside--before the show we will be having an early dinner/late lunch at the Dubliner Irish Pub not too far from the theatre!)

This a partial copy of the publicity release I received:
