I get emotional

The main story of this musical gets me really emotional. I can’t imagine what I would do if this happened to my family or with my sister and it really hit home for some reason

Lauren Mable ,

Pretty boring, politically punctured

A waste of good talent.

Touched My Heart

Fun Listen. Enjoyable Musicals. Cute Story. Lightly Touched On Heavy Topics. Sentimental. Sweet.
