THE SAVANNAH SIPPING SOCIETY, playing in Broadway Palm's Off Broadway Palm Theatre, is a delightful tale about four women who transform from strangers to best friends through weekly gatherings on a Savannah verandah. Whether they're dealing with struggles in relationships, work, or simply the side effects of getting older, these women help each other through it all. This show was brought back to The Off Broadway Palm because of popular local demand, and after having the chance to see it, I definitely understand why.
