by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Jul 20, 2016

On October 30, 2003, the institution of what we call American Musical theatre would never be the same. This highly anticipated musical hit Broadway running with box office success and two stars top billed.

This show evolves in every way, from the music, movement, costume and make-up design we are taken on a magical journey. (more...)
