Show #31 -- I'll Be Seeing You

My guest today was a long time friend of the show, Mr. Todd Dellinger of Texarts. Their production of I'll Be Seeing You opens This Friday (December 4) and plays through December 20.

I’ll Be Seeing You is an original 1940’s musical/musical revue which received its world premiere to sold-out, wildly enthusiastic audiences in 2008. It weaves the narratives of two now-grown neighbor children of World War II with letters to & from the home front, with slides, videos and popular holiday tunes of the era in a sparkling and warm family show that is sure to become a tradition for the Austin region.
