Ken and I just came home from a rehearsal of “Dessa Rose.” This dramatic musical from TheatreWorks is incredible. We were invited to a rehearsal: no lights, no costumes, few props: and it was fabulous. We were both in tears by the end, as was much of the cast!
Dessa Rose is the story of a black woman and a white woman in the South in the 1840’s, and how they learn to accept each other. Previews are October 4, 5 and 6, Opening night is October 7, and the play runs through October 29 at the Mountain View Center for Performing Arts.

We strongly recommend that you see this show. It is really a strong, emotional, vibrant, and moving story. And of course, with TheatreWorks, the production will be excellent.
