BWW Review: Actors Co-op Honors A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS BWW Review: Actors Co-op Honors A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS

If the laws are changed for convenience, who will object to money, favors or a higher position? When you think about it, the issue is timeless. In the 16th century, King Henry VIII (Ian Michaels) divorced his wife Catherine, who could not give him a son, and married Anne Boleyn.

by Frank Benge - Feb 17, 2016
