Celebrate the love of theatre itself with this timeless gem for The Gordy’s inauguration! Follow your imagination into a whimsical tale of young lovers, meddling parents, and a bond that matures in adversity. The longest-running musical in world history has been refreshed for the new century and is the perfect valentine to the theatre and the eternal power of love.
