That is what I’ve done all my life and to be perfectly honest, I have been very successful at it…. until last night, when I attended the opening night of Actors Theatre of Louisville’s production of Girlfriend under the seamless direction by ATL’s artistic director, Les Waters.
This is the reason why Girlfriendgrabs you from the moment it stars to the moment it ends and then stays with you as you make your way to the lobby. It isn’t only the story, the acting, the singing and the high artistic values of the show but the exquisite direction of a veteran theatre artist that makes this show memorable.
