By Toniak Todorova There is another magical happening at Filament Theatre this spring with their adaptation of THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE. A timeless tale made for the young who haven’t learned yet and the old who seemed to have forgotten: love...
Based on the 1997 documentary of the same name, Refuge Theatre’s production of HANDS ON A HARDBODY tells the story of a group of Texans locked in a battle of wills to see who will win a new truck.

L. Walter Stearns’ superb production boasts an excellent cast and terrific music, and moves far beyond the limits of traditional musical theatre.
