"It speaks really well for us in reaching out to the community, I think it’s the right thing to do , it’s the concept of diversity; it’s something we need to embrace, and I think we do a good job with that at our institution, and it’s been so much fun to do a play like this , because the music and the message is absolutely fantastic.” Said Todd Brand  MCC Theater Director.
