“I go so you know”
The musical to see this season is not on Broadway, it’s at MCC Theater and it’s called “The Wrong Man.” With book, music and lyrics by multi-platinum pop songwriter Ross Golan, direction by Thomas Kail of Hamilton and In the Heights fame, choreography by Emmy-winner Travis Wall and starring Joshua Henry, you don’t want to miss it. It’s fresh, innovative, powerful and moving. See it before it goes all Broadway on you, and you can no longer afford a ticket! For my full review, see here.
