All Hail the Queen – Tina: The Tina Turner Musical

Tina Turner did not have an easy life. This icon was handed the steep, craggy, dangerous and entirely uphill version of life at birth. She was also granted three super important gifts that would enable her to so marvelously persevere as she tackled this daunting climb: her spirit, her tenacity, and her voice…

Ain’t Too Proud and The Sound Inside… Go and Go!

Dear Dear Evan Hansen,

Two years.  730 calendar days. That is not a lot of time.  How remarkable that just a scant two years go by and boom, I find our 14-year-old twins to be absolutely on target to appreciate and love the exposed nerve that is Dear Evan Hansen…
