BWW Review: GYPSY at Palm Canyon Theatre
by Stan Jenson - May 14, 2018

The show either succeeds or fails based on the performance of Rose, and Palm Canyon Theatre's current production succeeds in trumps with the powerhouse delivery of Jaci Davis. Her voice fills every ounce of the theatre, and her energy in speaking, moving and singing never flags during an almost-three-hour performance! (more...)
