That’s the White Plains Performing Arts Center www.wppac.com – a theatre that I have been reviewing favorably for the past two seasons. They do fantastic work, reviving musical classics. With the most comfortable seats at most comfortable prices. It’s the new Off-Broadway. Go. You won’t be disappointed.
