BWW Review: THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA MCBRIDE at Ensemble Theatre Company Photo BWW Review: THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA MCBRIDE at Ensemble Theatre Company
by Maggie Yates - Dec 14, 2018

Ensemble Theatre Company's production of The Legend of Georgia McBride, directed by Jenny Sullivan, avoids the landmines. It's neither preachy nor offensive, and it tells a story of redemption that's timely, socially relevant, and charming. The show takes place over the period of a year, starting and ending around Christmas, an appropriate staging choice for a piece with such a clear connection to the general themes of the yuletide season. Georgia McBride is about family, forgiveness, celebration, and general joy to the world.
