We opened our latest show at Williamston Theatre this weekend, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s a piece that I love, because it’s all about a big Italian family, it’s very funny and very sweet, and it takes me back to my Grandma Caselli’s house when I was a kid!
We’ve been fortunate in that audiences are loving the piece as well. It’s one of those plays that makes you both laugh and get a little weepy, it feels just right for this time of year, and the cast is fabulous. We’ve gotten some great reviews so far, too:
“Over the River and Through the Woods” is a show that is a generous serving of laughter spiced with tears, longing, sadness and pure delight at all the wonderful things that family can be. It may not talk about the holidays at all, but it has the heart of the holidays. It is about the ways we love each other, grow away from each other and always carry with us the gift of where we came from.” – Bridgette Redman, Encore Michigan
