According to Lesley, she tries to attend such shows often. She likes the idea of dining before the show as well.

Apparently in this show, Lesley liked the topics they chose referring to issues experienced as a senior.

"The way they took sometimes serious moments in our life, and made them humorous, it worked. It was a great blend of acting, singing and getting a 'point across' at the same time. In other words, I liked the show!"

Lesley Liked All Things About the Show

Lesley had no one favorite topic.

"I liked all the topics for different reasons, but I was partial to the 'Weekend Warriors' one for sure. In it, three men act out being jocks again, and the music and choreography were great."
