Come with me where dreams are born
28 August 2019 | by djwoloskySee all my reviews

There is no way for me to be objective about this production. It was the very beginning of musicals and magic for a very tiny girl. It is a scratchy black and white print of a miracle. Watch it and be transported to once upon a time and long ago.
