Review: Pam Harbaugh's Delightful, Award-Winning CASSEROLE at the Early Bird Dinner Theatre

I wish more people in the world were like Claire Wilson. As the central character in Pam Harbaugh's endearing, award-winning CASSEROLE, she exudes such enthusiasm, liveliness, acceptance, strength, quirkiness and, best of all, love. Speaking in a midwestern accent with enough 'doncha knows' and 'You betchas' to make Fargo-fans happy, Claire is a gem of a soul, a godly woman who doesn't condemn or even judge. She celebrates her bizarre recipes with a smile and a hug, and she represents the very best of us. She may not be perfect, but she comes mighty close.
