This is such an amazing show, and it’s won so many awards,” said Bob Hoffman, with Wharton. “I think what really sets it apart is the fact not only is it an amazing story that talks about the history of America, but the music is incredible, and the acting is incredible, and it really resonates with audiences. The last time is was here, it nearly sold out, and we expect the same thing this time as well.”
