BWW Reviews:  New Moon Theatre Ghost Hunts with HAINTBWW Reviews: New Moon Theatre Ghost Hunts with HAINT
by Joseph Baker - Jun 1, 2014

Not since Jerre Dye's original CICADAS have I left a theatre in such a state of excitement; like Mr. Dye's play, which recently had a highly successful production in Chicago, this is a play born of a region and time - in this case, the isolated Ozarks of Arkansas in 1953.
