“The audience sat in a semicircle around my living room and all felt cozy and involved…. At the end of the afternoon, a big smile came across many faces, from watching our 99 year old cousin trying the Whoopee cushion which had been a prop in the show…. Yes, I would love to have the cast come again! (and an added bonus, I got to pick up some lose change that was under my couches).” Kathy in Columbia, MD
