Saw "Beautiful" at the Ellie Calkins - I hadn't been there in years, since it was the Auditorium theater. Great renovation, great acoustics. But the balcony is WAY UP THERE! Look over at your own risk!

We came by to see the wonderful giant dancing figures - they are really lovely and for us were well worth coming to have a look at for their joy.

What a fantastic show! Saw it in London the first time, with the rotating stage. It’s different with that stage aspect but still a fantastic show. Revenge isn’t worth it, it kills you in the end. It’s grace that sets you free. Absolutely love Les...More
