OK, I have a natural bias. But I am encouraging you to go see the musical revue "Americans All," which is the first show of the new season for the Lyceum Theater at Vanguard University. And take your children with you.
What does Vanguard's brochure say about "Americans All"?
"It's a play. It's a musical. It's an inspirational musical revue that is cleverly presented in a high school classroom setting. 'Americans All' stresses the importance of making good choices in life, expanding horizons and having some fun along the way, as it delightfully travels through the cornerstones of American values and illuminates them through music, dialogue and poetry."
I have a bias because I wrote and composed the work, with substantial assistance from my arranger, Susan Boettger, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music.
