FABULOUS!!!!!! How you can write a musical with this topic and have it be completely joyous, I don't know. Kudos to the writers. The entire cast was excellent but the stand out, for me, is Cameron Gilliam who takes John Coppola's BRILLIANT staging and just flies with it.

Let’s Write A Musical is an inspiring, playful, deeply poignant tribute to the power of love in the midst of life’s most challenging times. It is beautifully constructed, with a story within a story. The musical numbers are wonderful, sweet and catchy. The actors clearly love the material and give it their all. Bravo to Lawrie, the cast and the director!!... full review
