Your children will learn the value of true love and honesty. It won’t hurt the adults that bring them either, sort of a refresher course in human nature when you share it with the kids in your life….we all walk away with a warm feeling about life, and what more can anyone expect from a morning at the theater.- Around the Town Chicago
