Great theater not only plays a large role in helping to create the richness of our community, but it also can be an engine for change, individual growth, and shared understanding. Our final production of the season is the world premiere Natasha and the Coat, a poignant new play about two twenty-somethings who live in very different worlds. I look forward to seeing you soon!
