Fran Thomas co-authored a play when she was in fourth grade primarily so she could have the leading role. She has loved theater ever since. A transplanted Pittsburgher, she now makes her home in Southwest Florida.
Broadway Palm kicks off its 26th season with Let's Go to the Movies, a revue created, written, directed, and choreographed by Victor Legarreta. The show is loosely organized (with 'loosely' being the operative word) into three sections: Classic Hollywood, Imagination, and Movie Musicals.BWW Review: PATRIOTIC POPS at Barbara B.

The set is a decaying plantation. But instead of a delicate Southern belle, the leading 'lady' is a burly man in a towering platinum wig, dressed in pastel pink. Yes, you have entered the tilted world of 'Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte' at The Laboratory Theater.BWW Review: RING OF FIRE at Broadway Palm May 26, 2018
I must admit I wasn't expecting to like Ring of Fire, Broadway Palm's current production. I've never been much of a Johnny Cash fan, but I thought at least my husband would enjoy the show. I was pleasantly surprised.BWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at Broadway Palm April 14, 2018
In a world filled with #MeToo, it is wonderful to see a show that celebrates female power and friendships. Mamma Mia has two sets of gal pals of different generations who have each others' backs. To reinforce the message, the Prather organization chose Pace Center for Girls as the recipient of its charitable donation of the month.BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Pine Island Playhouse December 11, 2017
