Unknown show is perfect for Christmas and beautifully done
22 December 2019 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Mostly unknown today, these performers deserve all the praise available.

It's a sweet story of crime and redemption, of love and its salving effects on a trouble teen.

This is a show that should be brought out every year at Christmas season, and anyone with a heart, even non-Christians, should be able to love it as I do.
