BWW Blog: Christopher Vo of ON THE TOWN - Live Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Vo - Sep 22, 2014

One of the wonderful things about live theater is that each audience member's experience is different.

The experience envelopes them, and before long the audience is crying and laughing along with the characters on the stage. (more...)
