AN EVENING OF CLASSIC BROADWAY Set for Rockwell Table and Stage, 6/13
Here's what BroadwayWorld.com's Don Grigware says: "It's guaranteed fun, extra high on entertainment, and it incorporates Broadway standards both classic and contemporary, with a bevy of great singers on board. If that isn't enough, the structure is laid back and spontaneous, allowing one to sit back, relax and just savor the sounds."
