American Sweethearts

Remember the Andrews Sisters? This musical honors them. "All American Sweethearts, A Solute to The Andrews Sisters."

This musical was arranged and written for our first time viewing at the Towle Theater. Directed by Jeff Casey, and music by Elizabeth Tuazon, this was definitely an original that is brilliant. It is different. Different than what you will see portrayed by other directors. It feels down home, real for the times, as the Andrews Sisters lived it. If you want to feel the Andrews Sisters importance in our history, you need to go see this musical. Though note, this is a New Years Eve event, and may be sold out by now. Call and check, 219-937-8780.
