Brian Glick’s TOP FIVE

Today’s TOP FIVE comes to us from Brian Glick, one of the founders of Revival Theatre Company in Cedar Rapids. Debuting in 2014, Revival quickly established itself as a strong theatre performing classic musicals as well as rare gems. Next up for them is Sunday in the Park with George. I really enjoyed reading Brian’s inspiring descriptions of powerful theatre moments and I know you will, too.
