I've just spent the most amazing three months with the fascinating Rothschild family; Mayer and his 5 sons and the various Crowned Heads of Europe including Prince William of Prussia, Prince Metternich of Austria, Joseph Fouche, Napoleon's Minister of Police, and John Herries, the King of England's Exchequer.
With great regret and sadness, I have returned to the real world from the fantasy world of the theatre and a whirlwind round of royal parties.
After an intense 3 months of rehearsals we opened The Rothschilds at Riverwalk Theatre on June 4 and had an amazing run. The show garnered fabulous reviews, accolades, great press and some very nice awards.
The Lansing State Journal awarded our show 6 of them
