One thought on “Off-Broadway comes to The Arts Centre Gold Coast

  • What a great show. I thought a send up of some of my favourite musicals would be hard to enjoy. But the enthusiasm and vigour of all of the cast was fantastic. The body language was infectious and invigorating. A professional production. Well done.
