And while ten minutes remain till showtime, we’re already immersed in the world of 1947 New Orleans’ French Quarter.

FLORIDA CULTURAL ARTS GROUPS NEED TO ALIGN WITH PRO SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND AWARENESS

One has to think that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is playing the part of the famed character Ebenezer Scrooge in playwright Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’ as a Christmas in June production. DeSantis seems to be the real Scrooge.
