Quote of the Day: Sound advice from THE MUSIC MAN's lead character Harold Hill...

Oh, my dear little librarian. You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering. -- Harold Hill, THE MUSIC MAN (via IMDb)

What we're looking forward to watching: The film adaptation of LUCKY STIFF, starring a trove of theatre talent, including Jason Alexander, Dominic Marsh, Nikki M. James and more. Check out the trailer below!
