A wonderful play about overcoming pitfalls of life and surviving. I met the producer Miss Vy Higgin and it was a pleasure. The play is very uplifting and a must see. A bonus is the theatre is around the corner from the world famous Sylvia's restaurant. That means after a good show you can find good eats.

'I went to see The Mama Foundation For the Arts created by Vy Higginsen Presentation of Alive 55+ and Kickin'. It was the best musical I have seen in along time. Everyone in the musical is worthy of singing on Broadway In my opinion.
