I only wish it could have been longer. Boone shared a great deal of interesting information and advice. I was so glad I was able to see him.

Great set of shows, hilarious, thought provoking, and moving. It was so hard to believe they were student directed.

What can I say other than fantastic. The fact that there were empty seats for this performance was the only disappointing aspect of this performance.
