Damn Yankees The Jack Studio Theatre

With the Summer approaching, I am feeling the growing sense of excitement for the World Cup effervescing off most men I know.

Love Story at the Jack Studio Theatre

The show is certainly flawed and far from glossy but it’s hard to leave at the end without feeling like you’ve been part of something, whether that’s the trials of the characters or the efforts of the cast and crew.
