Debbie Hall is a long-time resident of Las Vegas (40 years and counting) and has always loved entertainment. Whether attending touring Broadway shows or high school productions, she enjoys the play, the characters, the music and everything behind the scenes. She currently works as an editor-in-chief for several publications and is thrilled to share her experiences with live theater and other forms of entertainment with the audiences of both Broadway World and those supporting the arts.
For every great show filled with entertainers coming together (such as the Rat Pack and "Million Dollar Quartet"), there are some that can only be imagined to be great if it had happened. While entertainment icons Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra have passed, what a collaboration if Elvis, Sinatra and Neil Diamond had come together to entertain audiences. Rob Garrett had the same idea. He wrote and stars in "American Trilogy" about all three singing together on stage.BWW Feature: SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN at Anthony Cools Showroom At Paris Las Vegas June 21, 2017
