Some of them worked really well – and some just missed the mark for me.  Continue reading Still Life (lemonTree theatre creations) 2011 SummerWorks Review

Luckily there is something else too. This is a charming show that has some wonderfully inventive moments and definitely something for every musical theatre fan out there.
