BWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is Perfect Blend of Classic Theatrical MagicBWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is Perfect Blend of Classic Theatrical Magic
by Matt Tamanini - Nov 20, 2014

One of the most magical places that I have ever been is Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. It's not a fancy place, just a simple town in which people go about their business, but are always willing to stop and chat about the weather. Grover's Corners is the epitome of a way of life that has long since ceased to exist, if it ever actually did in the first place. However, despite its quantness and surface simplicity, every time I go back to visit, I find more and more depth in the town than I ever remembered being there before. Perhaps this is a simple byproduct of my own aging, but each time I stop by Grover's Corners, I fall more and more in love with this mythical, magical town. (more...)
