Carolan Trbovich wouldn't mind if you summed up her life in a single word: Wicked. Oh sure, some would think it might mean that she was being labeled as crafty or iniquitous. But that's not the case. For her, the word 'wicked' means 'life saver.' Literally. Because of the popular Stephen Schwartz show, Ms. Trbovich is continuing to make her mark in the arts, doing what she does best.

IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU, the joyous wedding day musical presented by Mad Theatre of Tampa, doesn't have a bad thought in its head. At times we wonder if it has any thought in its head, but rest assured, any thoughts it does have are good. The show contains some of the most mindless fun I've had at any musical of late; it's a guaranteed good time. Imagine the tickle of champagne bubbles in your nose, and that's the feeling you get while watching it. Giddy, goofy elation.
