The 2008-2009 Season is Upon Us: Vol I

As all of the 2008-2009 seasons are beginning, I thought it would be helpful to create a quick guide to what’s coming up in August and September in the world of Theater and Arts. 

I will be reviewing many of them as they premiere, so check back often to see my thoughts.  Also, feel free to share your own comments on each review. So far, the opening line-up for this season looks fantastic. 

I will create an updated list similar to this in October when the next wave of shows begin.  Enjoy!
