    Love the tempo; maybe our actors can pickup a few tips. The cast’s acting is more natural and they have a better command of english than the Gennys and Oge’s of the world.

    A very good production! Thanks Bella for posting this. I’ll be sharing this on my Facebook profile.
    This goes to show that you don’t need major name actors to tell a great story. It’s all about the story and simply great acting!
