Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Words & Music – A Program of Monologues’ sparkles in Green Bay | #wearegreenbay.com#

If you’ve got the horses, ride ’em. And so it was Tuesday night, with the horses being various performing/creative talent on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Musicians blended with actors in a quick, one-hour showcase of imagination. The last time something like this was done on campus was never. In introductions, Kelli Strickland depicted it as “a hair brained idea, and we’ll see what comes of it.” Ahem. It’s a great idea, and the evening was a blast. Source: Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘Words & Music – A Program of Monologues’ sparkles in Green Bay | #wearegreenbay.com#
