Kid’s Theater Review: Charlotte’s Web at The Arden

One of my most reliable methods for determining the quality, or at the very least the stickiness, of a product or performance is the time it takes the Bear & Mouse to fold what they have just experienced into their extremely imaginative play. It took nearly 24 hours from us […]
