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."

"As far as myself, I am an actress and have worked in film, TV and theatre (Florida Rep and others). 'Calendar Girls,' among other films, is a film I was proud to be a part of. I'm also a professional voiceover actress at Voice 123."

More behind the scenes of this comedic musical are director Paul Bernier, and the choreographer, Amy Marie McCleary. The actors are Erin Fish, Jennie Hollander, Victor Legarreta, Autumn O'Ryan, Peter Riopelle, Robert Summers, Megan Opalinski and Michael J. Parker.
