I was lucky enough to be able to attend the opening night of Three Rivers Music Theatre's ONCE ON THIS ISLANDlast weekend, and let me tell you, this production is special. In most local Fort Wayne productions, you hand over your ticket, sit down, watch as the lights go down, and take in the show; the lights come back on, and you walk out, typically satisfied. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. But this show offered somuch more, and now that I've experienced it, I don't know that I'll ever be satisfied with anything less.BWW Review: PIPPIN Enchants at Arena Dinner Theatre May 1, 2019
