Tour director, Donna Sous said the cast were expecting a good Easter weekend.

“With it being the holiday season in the city, the show is fun for the whole family. Sales started off on a slow note but are escalating as more people are become aware of it,” said Sous.

Zaldha Hennessy, who attended the show, said she loved it.

“It was breathtakingly beautiful and some of the acts had you on the edge of your seat in suspense. Really great to watch. My 4-year-old didn’t take his eyes off the stage,” said Hennessy.
