BWW REVIEW: NSMT Presents Joyful SISTER ACTBWW REVIEW: NSMT Presents Joyful SISTER ACT

The director and designers behind Rubicon Theatre Company's acclaimed environmental productions ofFiddler on the Roof and Man of La Mancha have reunited on the two-piano chamber version of the legendary Lerner and Loewe's classic My Fair Lady.
