Such a great play, and such amazing actors! I highly recommend this play

By far my favorite high end craft and artisan show in Boston and this one (Holiday 2016) was perhaps the best ever. Such talented artisans, lovely people, incredible and diverse works ... it was a joy to attend. As always, it's a toss-up re what's the best part - the artisan, their stories, their work.
