Director Jacquelyn Villena Whitaker has tapped the talents of a cast of 20, who sing, dance, and act to the delight of audience members. It was good to see 11 newcomers to the local stage who joined regulars Adam Claybough (as the dynamic corporate exec) and nine other veteran thespians. The lead role of Finch, who took us with him as he advanced up the corporate ladder at the World Wide Wicket Company is in the very capable hands of Gary Craig Schoenfeld, a newbie to the local scene. Whoever did the casting found the right person for this role. He was a delight to watch.

Kelly says rescue crews have found bodies of people “protecting each other, holding each other.”. Hundreds of people holding candles honored those who died in the fire at a vigil Monday night in Oakland’s Lake Merritt.
