“As a reviewer, it is my distinct task to say what I think of plays and productions, but all I can give this one is a resounding, “I don’t know. You’ll have to decide for yourself.” New #UtahTheatre review for @slactingco’s HIR: https://t.co/CbHBlPbxKc

“CRAZY FOR YOU might not be worth the drive from Provo, but if you’re in Davis County, it’s worth the price. Take the kiddies and get them started on the music that makes America great.” NEW #UtahTheatre review for @Hopeboxtheatre: https://t.co/AU3VHMxmV1
